A one week visit to Victoria for work. As always on these jaunts its unusual to see much more than the inside of the hotel and a school. However, my flight left late at night on the last day so I had a day at leisure in Melbourne. Spring had sprung, the grass had rizz, I wondered where the birdies is. The weather was glorious... early 20s, sunny and fresh. Melbourne is a nice city to walk around and that's just what I did. I downloaded a few walking tour guides and plumped for the street art self-guided walking tour. Although by the time I'd found the beginning of it I was already a bit knackered and didn't really get going in the afternoon like I planned. In fact, I found a park and lay in the sun and read for a good part of it.
Absolutely one of my favourite things to do on holiday is to wander around a place. Not necessarily with anywhere in particular in mind or, if I do, no pre-set route. Just the idea that we will see something cool on the way.
Up until recently that had become a problem but now our children are a bit older, and if we can keep them interested, they will walk for a big chunk of a day. Obviously this has it's limits (usually about 2PM!) but it is also good to remember that we are supposed to be enjoying ourselves and some nice quiet relaxing time is no bad thing either.
Just wander and see what there is to see.
