Coffee Break

I am not a coffee expert or anything of that sort, but the one thing I do know is
before I came to this city I was drinking Starbucks, or standard drip style coffee at most diners of America. I do not have anything against Starbucks coffee but i do know it is full of calories, and the flavoring they use is full of artificial colors and flavors.
When walking around Melbourne there are cafes on every corner and to sit outside and catchup with a friend or read the paper alone with a latte is a fave past time of mine.
Yes any other city in Australia will have coffee, but I believe it is the cobblestone alleys lined with trendy cafes, the vibrant sound of a barista frothing milk mixed with quick conversation and a warm and cozy feeling that makes Melbourne the best place to drink coffee.

Happy New Year!

Something about the New year that makes everyone snap back into first gear and get their act together. I am ready for a new start and very motivated to make 2013 awesome!
Some of my resolutions are
1. Save money for our 2014 travel plans
2. Continue practicing piano
3. And be present in "Now" and appreciate what is right in front of me.
4. Go for more walks

What are your goals for 2013?

Here are some silly photos from 2012.....

Zombie shuffle

This past october we participated in the Melbourne Zombie shuffle for the 2nd time! Hundreds of people dress up and march through the city. And we had an even bigger group with us this year! It was such a fun event and I couldn't pass up the chance before the year is over to post some photos from it! For information on the 2013 shuffle follow the Facebook page!!!

Christmas Cheer

Our christmas this year was wonderful! We went to a few events with family and friends, saw a gingerbread village in the city, and ate some very yummy food! I feel really blessed. Hope everyone had a wonderful day.

Trunk Diner

Sunny day, blue skies, great company and a damn good burger, that was or experience at Trunk DINERTrunk Bar and restaurant and Trunk Diner share the same building but the Diner is located in the courtyard area. No frills and affordable prices. We invited some friends of ours, everyone ordered a burger and we shared some fries. Just writing this post is making my mouth water.
You can sit outside under the red and white stripped umbrellas on a good day, and they have breakfast until 11:30am. DO IT!

Taco Truck-Melbourne

The other day my friend Kana and I had a little lunch date with a truck. Not just any truck, a TACO TRUCK! These guys drive around to certain areas of Melbourne and post where they will be on Twitter and Facebook, and people show up. Simple as that!
For all of you jaded people in LA and NY with food trucks on every corner, there are only a small amount of food trucks in Melbourne so these guys are extra special! Plus they really do have the BEST fish tacos, and they even serve them Baja style with the white sauce and cabbage! Just the way I like it! Recently they have built another truck so they might be in two places at once! Follow them HERE. Your welcome.

P.S. How cute is the truck??
