I fly back home today, so this post is my fond farewell to Melbourne. I managed to squeeze in quite a bit of shopping, gallery and museum visiting, eating and coffee drinking in my little visit. A few of the highlights include ...

:: meeting the Publications Editor of The Australian Ballet and having the most decadent Italian hot chocolate with her at the NGV's beautiful tea-rooms :: wandering on every floor of the gallery I could fit into my schedule and soaking in all the art :: peeking into a ballet class at The Australian Ballet :: having an endless supply of great coffee at my disposal :: sharing a bed with a very pretty feline madame with the biggest blue eyes (my brother's cat, Simba) :: spending time with my brother in his swanky apartment by the sea :: the food, everywhere, you can't go wrong in Melbourne :: and the bookstores (need I say more?) ::

There were so many other highlights though, I really enjoyed myself - even if I did manage to get drenched by soggy Melbourne weather. I can't wait till my next visit Melbourne! I am however looking forward to catching up on all your blogs tomorrow. Thanks for all the Melbourne tips and emails, I really appreciated them.
