Melbourne is a great city. It has quiet an European touch with its laneways and trams and you can get great coffee and food at the many great cafes and restaurants there. I had just two days to explore the city but thanks to the many tips I got they helped me to find some nice places.

#1 Melbourne and its trams
#2 Chapel Street Bazaar in Prahran is the place to find anything you missed out to buy one at fleamarket..they have really everything, vintage jewellery, clothes, ceramic, furniture....
#3 Breakfast at Arcadia in Fitzroy. Muesli w. berries and yoghurt
#4 One of the vintage stores in Fitzroy. Around Brunswick/Gertrude/Swanston/George Street there are so many tiny stores and cafe. Great to spend time there. Thanks for the tip Christine :)
#5/6 We had dinner at Movida Next Door. Amazing tapas and try their sheep milk cheesecake with strawberries!
#7 Oh I am in love with the Australian skies
#8 At the Ron Mueck exhibition which was great
#9 Impressive sculptures
#10 The two old ladies were my favourite
#11 Just STAY

Hope you are all well
/Maria

I can't ever come back, If I never go
I don't ever explain, if I never know
I won't ever take it, if I never give
and if I never live, if I never live, if I never live

Kim said...

Seabear were really great! I loved them! Thx for the tip about the pics. Marion helped me a little while back. I was thinking of making them even bigger! (I'm so bad at ratios!)

lilie-melo said...

everything there looks so appealling, I like all this bunch of pictures a lot and especially the juxtaposed reflection in the window... it's a wonderful shot.

... da sah ich heute ein Mädchen bei h&m in Bielefeld und ich könnte schwören, dass du es warst!
habe ich etwa schon Halluzinationen, weil ich deinen Blog so gerne mag oder habe ich da tatsächlich die Marie gesehen?
warscheinlich aber bist du noch in australien und ich habe Gespenster gesehen...

liebe Grüsse,
Julia

julia said...

da habe ich mich also nicht getäuscht!
ja, ein Stups wäre gut gewesen, aber da war ich wohl etwas westfälisch zurückhaltend und ich war unsicher, ob Du vielleicht geschäftlich unterwegs bist ...
sollte ich mal in Hamburg auftauchen und ich sehe Dich,, dann stupse ich ganz bestimmt!
hübsch hast Du ausgesehen!
ein Gruss
