As you can probably tell by now, Tom and I love our food (particularly breakfast food) and we tend to plan our days around where we're going to eat!
We'd been recommended a place called
in South Melbourne, so we caught a tram and headed off in search of this French-inspired patisserie/cafe. Located in a revamped warehouse, the setting was perfect and of course the food ended up being delicious! I definitely recommend the french toast if you visit!
Once we'd stuffed ourselves with food, we had a look around the South Melbourne Markets, and then caught a tram to St Kilda where we enjoyed some sunshine while walking along the beach, before going in search of the famous Luna Park (admittedly just for the photo - we didn't actually end up going inside!)
Then it was off to Chapel Street for some shopping (at least that was the plan). I've already mentioned this in a previous post, but we ended up walking almost the full length of the street before finding the actually "shopping area", so by the time we actually reached this part we were exhausted! - It's a long street!
It was really fun just strolling around exploring the area though and coming across cute little places we wouldn't have found if we'd just caught a tram. My favourite find was this little bookshop that reminded me so much of something out of Harry Potter. The bookshelves towered to the ceiling and were all higgledy piggledy, and there were cats just strolling around or curled up in a chair!
We walked through the Botanic Gardens on our way back and it was such a beautiful place, although it was starting to get dark by this point so we didn't get to fully explore it - we'll be back though!
We ended the day with dinner at
- a Spanish tapas bar. The food was seriously
and I highly recommend it!
So that's it for our Melbourne trip! I didn't take many photos on our last day (but it was a pretty similar thing - lots of eating and walking around exploring!)
I've actually just bought tickets to see Taylor Swift in Melbourne in December so I'm excited to be going back in a few months (although still kinda annoyed that she's not coming to Perth!)
There's still so many things to see and do there, so if you have any suggestions for next time, I'd love to hear them!
I actually "vlogged" some parts of the trip too and have been slowly putting the clips together (my editing skills need a lot of work though), so I'm toying with the idea of putting that video up.
I love watching vlogs on YouTube so I am kinda tempted to give them a try myself... we'll see if that actually happens :)
Anyway, I hope you're having a fab day!
Lots of Love
