After a long blogging hiatus I am finally returning to my little space… I have spent a bit of time evaluating what exactly it is that I want to share on here and what it is that I want to achieve, and really it comes down to my love of taking photos and story telling. Despite the fact that i don’t have a goal or outcome in mind, and don’t exactly have mountains of spare time, I will continue to share whatever comes to mind on this blog, let the ideas flow, and use it as a creative outlet – so important now that medicine has started to take over my life.
The blue skies and sunny days of winter have been phenomenal. With beautiful weather on our mind, a couple weeks ago we woke up feeling like an adventure, so we jumped in the car and headed down to Byron for a day full of market shopping, sunshine and good food.
Byron Bay never disappoints, and market day brings out the hippy in everyone, with the smell of incense, DIY tie-dye, dream catchers and fisherman pants for as far as the eye can see.
Though our stay in Melbourne was only quick, one thing we had plenty of time for was coffee. From our hotel, it was only a short stroll through Prahran market to a place we discovered on our last visit – Market Lane.
Market lane really is a place for coffee lovers, as well as the standard espressos, cappuccinos and lattes, they specialise in single origins and filter coffee – perfect for people who want to try something a little different.
As I mentioned in my last post, this past week has been a whirlwind. This time last week we were on a plane, flying down to Melbourne for 2 nights, for the start of the Garnier Ambassador program.
Since our return, life has been pretty hectic with a couple of massive unexpected curve balls, but we are thinking positively and trusting that everything will work out, as it always tends to do!
Aside from the food, and the fact that my wonderful extended family lives here – one of the greatest things about Melbourne are the old buildings. It is such a contrast to Brisbane and the Gold Coast, both of which have very little in the way of history.
It is so easy to walk past and miss some amazing buildings that are used for shops on ground floor, so I have been doing the typical tourist thing and looking up while walking.
