Down-under 2013

A trip to the city

Just as I have all the other mornings, I woke up early and made myself a yum yum brekkie. I heard that it takes 30 days to form a new habit and my trip down-under might see me through to a brekkie habit that mother dearest would approve of.

After breakfast we got ready for my first trip to the city this time around. My first experience was of the singing birds at the central station. From your first look, it just looks like your very normal station clock.

All of the sudden it opens up and there are birds and angels that play Waltzing Mathilda (for those of you that don’t know, this is the unofficial national anthem of Australia).

When standing there and listen, you might happen to look up and have a pretty cool view.

From the station we made our way past Starbucks (finally) and I could get a couple of additions to my mug selection.

No visit anywhere would be complete without a visit to a museum, and the museum of choice today was the Melbourne museum.

image

Walking around, checking out all the exciting exhibitions make you hungry and not far from the museum we found this really nice little Thai place with good service and yum food.

Mr Three-year-old even got a very special plate and mug, I even got a tad bit jealous.

To walk of the lunch again we took a tour down China street, sorry town, which was mostly restaurants and snacks.

A bit further down we were stopped in our trek by some lovely music. They stole my heart with a cover of one of Swedish House Maffias songs, unfortunately the cover isn’t on their cd. I know because I accidentally spent ten dollars on it.

image

They were good live so recommend you check them out. They also got a little bit of assistance with the show, by their very own sensei as the called him. He had some moves I tell you.

image

The time passes quickly when you are having fun and after a quick stop getting some postcards we made our way towards home.

Where we had a lovely dinner of Swedish meatballs and mashed potatoes.

Another lovely day that I finished with finishing yet another quality historical romance novel.
