MELBOURNE

It happened so quickly.  We were there-then we were gone.

We were also ill in Melbourne-constantly.

I don’t mean once or twice-I mean CONSTANTLY.

It was G’s first go at five days a week in school with other children and they shared each other’s germs freely.  Some were colds, some were flus.  My favorite was a delirious/I don’t know who I am/just leave me here and save yourselves, kind of flu.

I’m almost certain we can trace that one back to Cuba.

A week before we left Melbs for Perth, I dragged my poor husband out with me and begged him to do a mini photo essay of the city for us.  I wanted a reminder of how much we loved Melbourne and all the wonderful people we met there between illnesses.

A post of all the loveliness of Melbs is long overdue.  Enjoy these brief highlights.

G and I waited 15 minutes one day so we could see them strike their bells.  It was WELL worth the wait.

  • Melbourne is beautiful, I have never really seen many photo’s. What a gorgeous place to live or visit. Had no idea. Looks very European, I didn’t expect that.

    • It’s true! It’s Australia’s most European city. All the brick and tiny laneways are counterintuitive to what you think when you think, ‘Australia!’
