MelbourneAugust 29, 2017 in Australia
First thoughts on Melbourne, it's bloomin freezing! I thought it was supposed to be hot in Australia! We woke to Maddy leaving us a heartfelt note, a key and some towels before she headed to work. We didn't have any food so we decided to go out for breakfast. Maddy lives in Richmond, just outside the city which has a plethora of coffee and food places, not dissimilar to North Street. We decided on a place called Lumberjack where Si opted for a delicious looking baked eggs and beans style dish and I went for a lovely porridge with mixed berries, apple and nuts.
With breakfast sorted we could move on to the main goal of the day, getting Simons barnet snipped. For a boy that usually gets it cut every 2 weeks, after more than 2 months since the last snip it was getting out of control. Even the barber commented on the length!
In addition to haircuts we also did a spot of grocery shopping and picked up some Myki cards which we need to use the trams and other public transport in Melbourne. All in all a very productive day.Read more
