In May, we made a trip to Melbourne and stayed there for about 2.5 weeks. We loved it there – especially the kids. I could so see us living there.
I am leaving it all up to God. If he wants us to be there, we will get ourselves there. If not, I am sure God has other plans for us.
Meanwhile, let me share some photos!
We stayed at my brother’s place most of the time. The kids had roasted marshmallows. It was their first time roasting marshmallows by a fireplace. It’s definitely an experience they will not forget for sure.
On our first day, we took a relaxing drive to Sassafras Creek. It’s a little village located at the Dandenong Ranges with lots of speciality shops. If you’re a tea lover, you can drink at specialist tea shops where they’ve all kinds of tea. I am not a tea drinker but I would imagine this little village will be heavenly for tea lovers.
If you are up for some hiking, there are trails which you can go on. We weren’t up for hiking so we ended up taking a stroll at the village, bought some ice creams and pies and had it at a nearby park. The weather was gorgeous. Not too cold (12 C) and it was sunny.
It was perfect.
After spending about 2 hours at Sassafras Creek, on the way back, we stopped over at Kokoda Memorial Garden. The kids went to the playground to have some fun. There are also a lot of walking trails at this place but we weren’t up for it. I was told that this place was similar to the TTDI park at KL where people usually go to to exercise. Since it was a weekday, there weren’t many people there then but I was told that it can get very crowded during the weekends. Because we are such impromptu travelers, we weren’t in the right mindset to do any exercise or hiking that day.
Sunset was at 5pm. So our days were pretty short.
Note to self : The next time we go to Sassafras, we should gear up and explore the walking trails!
