About to tick off Life List #7

I am SO excited!

We are flying to Melbourne tomorrow to complete my Life List #7 - Go to the Formula One in Melbourne.

Apart from the grand prix itself, I am also really looking forward to visiting Melbourne again.

Melbourne is very different to Sydney and in some ways I like it a lot better.

Although Sydney has a natural beauty, with stunning beaches and a beautiful harbour, it sometimes lacks a bit of 'culture' (although this has started to change recently).

Melbourne's beauty comes from its architecture and a cosmopolitan vibe. Melbourne started the small bar movement many years ago and it has also embraced its inner city lane ways, where you can find unique boutiques, little galleries, amazing cafes and hidden bars.

I love it!

Here are some happy snaps from our visit to Melbourne in December 2010, when we flew down to see U2 perform.

Melbourne is also regarded as one of the world’s best Street Art locations for its unique works displayed on legal outdoor locations throughout the city.

Shame there isn't an exhibition on at the NGV that we want to see.

I'll update you on our adventures when we are back.

Go Mark!
