melbourne is famous for many reasons. luckily for me, most of them are made up of my favourite things, food, coffee, wine, fashion and more food. so why is it that i don't spend more time in melbourne? i am asking myself that same question.
kurt and i had a little mini-getaway before our major getaway in a few weeks, to celebrate my 27th birthday. i can literally say that we wined and dined until our hearts were content and one day even wined ourselves right out. we hit the yarra valley for a day of wine tasting, sampled some amazing asian-fusion cuisine at coda and hit the inner-city lane ways. walked through the beautiful botanical gardens, dined with friends and shopped our way down chapel street.
if you are looking for a cool cosmopolitan getaway, don't look any further than melbourne. its cultural and art scene along with its fashion-savvy and often fashion forward vibe will knock your socks off.
p.s. i will suggest staying at the blackman hotel off st kilda road, its one in a series of spots belonging to the arteries hotel group, i promise it will take your vacay to the next level.
