I have a love hate relationship with winter. I hate catching a cold/flu. I hate the need to wear multiple pieces of clothing out only to shed it all off and lug it around as soon as you step inside anywhere. I hate waking up and going home in the dark and feeling like there […]

Two beans and a farm

March 17, 2014

People who know me will know that I will travel for food. This is why I found myself all the way in Mernda this dreary weekend past, at Two beans and a farm (10 Hathfelde Boulevard, Mernda VIC) in the Carome Homestead. For those of you scratching your heads wondering where on earth Mernda is; […]

Lucky me, I managed to have another quiet little escape out of Melbourne the other week. This time to Warrnambool. Warrnambool is about 3 hours south west of Melbourne down by the coast. It’s also known as the “windy city”. It was another bit of good fortune that on the day I visited the sun […]

Otway Fly & Treetop Walk and Wickens Delicatessen & Provedore

No visit to Apollo Bay would be complete without a venture towards the lush greenery that is the Otway Ranges. I love the long winding drive from the coast up to the forest. The driving experience was enhanced with my zippy little manual but even if you’re not in the driving seat, it feels so […]

Dooley’s Ice Cream – The Ice Cream Tub

I hope everyone has had as relaxing a long weekend as I did. A group of friends and I escaped the Melbourne heat wave in search for some respite down at the surf coast. The picturesque Apollo Bay provided this in spades. We spent our days lazily splashing about in the refreshingly cold surf, pointing […]

October/November mashup

So it looks like we’re speeding towards the end of the year here and the absence in posts for the last month is really just a reflection of how busy things have been.  I am beginning to amass quite a large backlog of posts to be written, and I’m afraid I’m not likely to get […]

The Village Larder

August 29, 2011

En route home to Melbourne, I’d very strategically planned a pit stop at the very sweet looking town that is Woodend. Why? Because the sun was out, I wanted to stretch my legs and cue drum roll: it is home to The Village Larder (81 High Street, Woodend VIC). As you should know, food is […]

The Dispensary Enoteca

Every now and then, this city girl needs to take a break from all the traffic and dramas of city living. So it was on a typically grey overcast winter’s day that I packed my bags, boarded a vline train out of Southern Cross Station and bid a nonchalant farewell to Melbourne – a least for […]

Wine Bank on View

It has been a strange introduction into spring this year. There’s been some really brilliantly warm and sunny days and then there’s been wild storms and a return to the freezing single digit temperatures. Crazy Melbourne weather. Only, it hasn’t just been Melbourne…seems like the rest of State and potentially other parts of Australia are […]
