I'm back! Melbourne was absolutely brilliant, and it was extremely difficult to whittle down the 400+ pictures I took to around 40.
I'm more interested in sharing the moments rather than the monuments: anyone can Google image all the different places I visited, and so posting my own pictures of buildings seems a little redundant; instead, I want to share moments that might not be there in a week or a day or a minute or even a second. (It's not going to be very apparent in this post particularly, but just wait and see...) It's Melbourne from my own, slightly deranged, eyes.
(I also like crazy angles.) :D
My mom and I left Sydney's Central Station at 7:42am and from there it was an 11-hour train ride to Melbourne.
A view of the landscape
I watched The Wrestler
Lunch - lamb curry with rice; essentially a $9 microwave dinner
We arrived at Melbourne's Southern Cross Station at 7pm and stayed with a family friend.
A few pictures from the car ride:
And now, my outfit!
(Just a note that these are the only formal outfit photos of the trip. I kind of got...lazy.)
