Weekend in Melbourne

I live about 30 minutes drive from Melbourne so I have never felt the need to stay in the CBD or surrounds before. If I go to a restaurant or event in the city I normally just drive home because it’s not far. ¬†However when friends of mine decided to come to Melbourne for the weekend I didn’t hesitate to say I would stay there as well.

I suggested we stay at the Travelodge Southbank which is just south of Melbourne’s CBD and right in the heart of the restaurant belt of Southgate and Crown Casino which is my favourite part of Melbourne.

The rooms themselves are small, but very fresh and comfortable. Prices are very reasonable considering their location a few hundred metres from Crown Casino, Southgate, Federation Square and Flinders St Station. From my room on the 9th floor I could see a glimpse of Flinders St Station through the gap between the Langham Hotel and Mobil building.

I’m back

Sooo life has got in the way of blogging in the last nine months. That and putting unnecessary pressure on myself to blog every day.

A friend of mine has recently started blogging and she has inspired me to freshen up my blog and start blogging again. This time I won’t make myself blog every day.

I’m looking forward to interacting with you all again. ¬†I’ve got a lot of catching up to do on the blogs I follow.
