As you have seen in my previous two Melbourne posts, I did a lot of travelling in the suburbs, but I also got to explore the central city quite a bit. However it is a lot easier to show you than to tell you so enjoy looking a the photos I have put together for you below.
The first thing that Rosana and I did in Melbourne was hit the Queen Victoria Market. We also went back to the for the Night Market on our last night which was an awesome experience with heaps of international foods to try, and little knickknacks and clothes to look at (and try not to buy).
One of the things that I really wanted to do while I was in Melbourne was to go to the Melbourne Sea Life Aquarium after having walked past it as a child when visiting with my mum. We both managed to get about 20% off our entry tickets as we picked up the free Melbourne guide-book at the airport. This book had maps for the trains and tram in the city as well as a whole lot of vouchers. I loved seeing all the sea animals, especially the turtles as they are my favourite animals. It was also awesome going through the aquarium tunnel and into the main aquarium.
As we were walking around the main street near Federation square we noticed that we had stumbled upon Hosier Lane without intentionally seeking it out. There was such an amazing street art like the picture of the girl below. Of course we also saw the pictures of Sully and Mike from Monsters Inc.
On our last night in Melbourne Rosana and I headed out to St. Kilda to seek out a little restaurant called Lentil as Anything. Lentil as Anything is a non-profit organisation that has restaurants where the customers pay as much as they feel/can afford to pay for a meal. We both shared a vegetable lasagne and Lentil Burger. Both were absolutely delicious and I would definitely recommend going there if you are short on money or even if you aren’t so you can be one of the ones to pay it forward with your donation.
Well if I post any more pictures this will end up like a photo magazine. If you want to see more photos of my time in Melbourne just let me know in the comments and I will post some to The Spanish Bluebell’s Facebook page. Keep an eye out in the coming weeks for some Sydney posts!
