Crushing on Melbourne.

Hey there, thought I'd check in.. :)
Things are going good so far. The trip to our half way stop in Dubbo went off well. left at 5am in the morning, got there about 4pm. Caravan we stayed in was bigger than I thought, but had to use the parks toilet and shower block. Yucky in the cold cold winter. Stayed for three nights. Went to the Taronga Western Plains Zoo. Ticket gave you two days. First animals I saw were Lemurs!!!! They are actually in the part before you enter the zoo. Zoo was so cool, you drive around it and get out to see the animals. OMG! Saw BABY MEERKATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Apparently that day was the first day Mum took them out of their den. so so cute. 
Am loving Melbourne so far, it's so pretty with all the old buildings, they have preserved their heritage beautifully.
As for eye appointments..GGGRR!!! went to the first appointment on Monday and the lady was like.. "I don't know why you are even here at this general clinic...". not happy! Anyway they have rescheduled my appointment tomorrow because apparently THAT one was wrong as well!! So who knows what will happen.
Strolled around the Queen Victoria Markets today, bought a leather jacket. Found one of the best art shops and only spent $50! LOL! Bought watercolour supplies. Tomorrow after my appointment we are going to Lygon Street, famous for it's restaurants. then we are going to the observation on floor 88 of Australia's tallest building.. (Hubby is not, the big woos)
We are staying in a little cabin, much like a mini house...
Anyway, got to go.. Hope you are all well.


  1. Glad you're liking good 'ol Melbs! We're getting good weather this week :)

  2. How frustrating on the appointment part. Hope it all gets sorted.

    Looking forward to pictures and I have to say, I would be right there with your hubby.

  3. Aren't baby animals the best? Sorry about the eye appointment... Glad part of your trip is going well.

  4. YAY! I'm so glad you're having a good time!...Well, except for the eye appointment thing. :-)) Enjoy!!

  5. HOMG. BABY Meerkats? :)
    Pictures! Please. Of the art supplies too.

    The appointment, YGTBFKM?! after all of that? Grrr...Aargh.

    In the meantime, glad you're having a good time.

  6. @Ruth I know the weather has been stunning:)
    @Paul I know right! Yes it was very frustrating..
    @Nubian Yes it was. Can't wait to take pictures from us there.
    @Poetess Thankyou!
    @Ant I KNOW!!!! I will upload pics when we get home. Having a great time :)

  7. I had a chance to go to Melbourne last year and completely dropped the ball on that. I'm still kicking myself over it.

    Glad to hear you're loving it there, though. What a fantastic road trip this is turning out to be. Hope the eye appointment goes well -- good luck!

  8. Melbourne is one of my most favorite places in the whole world! I'm so glad you are having fun! Some of my most cherished family memories come from our time in Melbourne. :)

    And what the heck is up with the eye lady?! How aggravating!

  9. @Caren, thanks, it didnt really but I will blog it when I get back.
    @David We love Melbourne. Any time you have a chance again, take it!
    @Frisky, I know right? she was pissed off and treating us like it was our fault. Hello....? WE are the ones who drove 20 hours to get here!


I'd love to hear what you have to say :)
