Today we made a stop to Arrowtown and Queenstown on our way to Te Anau. Arrowtown is such a beautiful old heritage town. Queenstown was filled with tourists, we went and got Ferg Burgers which were amazing. Click to view more of my photos from today!
So we are in Vietnam! On the second day we flew to Da Nang, a coastal town full of tourists. We stayed at a hotel about a five minute walk from the beach. If you want to see what I saw please click to continue!

Today Mitch and I headed to Melbourne City to explore. First we went to Hosier Lane to get some video footage, it took us a while to find coffee. Mitch took his coffee at Duke’s Coffee Roaster and about thirty minutes later I found a bistro style tiny cafe in the Royal Arcade – I can’t remember the name of the place but it was really good. After that we caught the tram to Fitzroy to go to Hotel Jesus.
We woke early in the morning and headed to Spice Alley, where we went last week for Mitch to take photos of me. The morning light was soft and golden which was perfect for pictures. After we went to Concrete Jungle cafe, a modern minimal/industrial designed space for food and coffee. I had a greens, poached egg and wagyu bresaola and Mitch had ricotta hot cakes.
Tonight Mitch, his dad Craig and I went to Fratelli Fresh, a restaurant in Sydney’s Westfield Pitt mall. The classic bar style interior was impressive, the food delicious and the atmosphere warm and intimate. I had a lovely carbonara and Mitch and Craig had pizza, we also ordered some arancini and bruschetta.
Today I went to The Tea Room QVB in Sydney’s Town Hall with some girlfriends. The tea room was absolutely beautiful, better than the pictures I have seen. We had a lovely brunch with finger sandwiches, sweets and I had a milky tea. Afterwards I met Mitch and we went over to Central Park – Spice Alley for a Matcha Iced Latte at Glider KS cafe which was super cute and the girls there were lovely!
Last week, I had a super long weekend off. So in the good spirit of things.. I booked tickets to Melbourne. We had such a great time frolicking around the city in the autumn leaves. Melbourne was cold, gloomy and grey but it didn’t hinder our experience there. As usual it was a sleepy romantic city.
