The Melbourne Diaries- Day 1, 2 & 3

Day 1- Our flight got in at around 7am, and by the time we got the SkyBus to our hotel in peak traffic it was around 8:30am. Of course we couldn't check in yet, so we went gallivanting in search of breakfast (2 eggs on toast any way you like for $5.50!) Found some delish macarons, browsed some cute and eclectic stores, indulged in Krispy Kremes. Moseyed on down to Fed Square and had a quick stroll by the river then back to the hotel for a much needed afternoon nanna nap. Hoped to go see the Disney art exhibit at the ACMI, but we were a few minutes too late and ended up watching the free show at Fed Sq that night before hunting out some dinner (ended up at Nandos haha).

Day 2- Slept in until 10:30 (I think our bodies were still on WA time- and the hotel light blocking curtains didn't help!) Made our way on to Sally's Kitchen for coffees and lunch before heading to Docklands for a spot of DFO shopping together. The boy later left me to do my thing (shop for hours) while he ventured to the Crown and put his poker skills to good use and we met up later for dinner at an Indian restaurant. Ben like to be funny sometimes. This usually results in glasses being tipped over, bread baskets tumbling to the floor and the entire restaurant falling to an awkward silence :P it's why I love him.

Day 3- Breakfast at the lovely AIX Creperie on Centre Place, this alleyway is full of street art (actually most of the alleys are full of street art, but I think I heard a tour guide mention that this one is actually a commissioned/legal one). Further on down the lane I just could not go past Little Cupcakes and the pistachio mini cupcake was absolutely divine! Later on in the day I became a pseudo Essendon supporter for our outing to the MCG. I'm not usually into AFL but it was quite an exciting game to watch and squished in among 78,000 other people the atmosphere was quite amazing (if only I could repeat some of the heckles being yelled by the guy behind us haha) the nail biting game ended up being the 3rd draw for the 2011 season. Ben lost all his bets, although Fletcher gained him some decent Dream Team points. I think.
