The Melbourne Diaries

I have just come back from 10 days in Melbourne and it's been a great trip, but I've also been very busy with work. Luckily everything went well, and thanks to my cold & flu medication being pretty efficient I kicked my cold before it advanced further. There is nothing worse than being sick when you are away from home.
In between my work days I had the time to do some adventuring in Melbourne and I went straight to St Kilda since it's one of my favourite areas there. Luna Park was discovered and it was great fun to try the Scenic Railway roller coaster for the first time.
Afterwards it was time for breakfast/brunch and to my delight they had egg chairs there. They are high up on my wish list and I really want one in my house. It's just so fun to swing around in them and they are also really comfortable.
Next up it was time for my favourite Salted Caramel Gelato at Fritz Gelato. It was just as good as I remembered it to be.
Melbourne has so many beautiful bridges and this one called the Seafarers Bridge is high up on my list of favourites.
At the South Wharf I saw one of my favourite signs of all time. It's just genious!
The next day I had an uber-special facial at Made Beauty Space and it was just as good as I had heard it would be. If you live in Melbourne I totally recommend this gem of a salon. It was so relaxing, so inviting and up there in my top three facials of all time. Their attention to detail was superb, the Sodashi products used were terrific and I really enjoyed the whole experience.
Afterwards I met up with a friend from uni who took me to the Rooftop Bar which was excellent. Beautiful weather, great view and a fun vibe. Melbourne was truly showing off!
For the rest of the week I was busy working on a big sporting event which went really well! It was so good to see that it all worked out, and that all the hard work we had put into it was rewarded with a great outcome even though the weather didn't cooperate 100%. 

How was your week?
