Gorgeous spring vibes in South Yarra

By | October 27th, 2017|bars and restaurants, bullshit, daily life, holidays, Turtle|

Back to where it all began. :-) It was so exciting to come to Melbourne that first long weekend in 2015. I sat in exactly the same bar on a vibrant Friday afternoon and couldn’t believe that I got through the experience without smoking a cigarette! Amazing :-) Today, I am celebrating my freedom. Even [...]

Words of an author – the unknown and the planned

By | October 18th, 2017|daily life, holidays, literature|

It is so nice, how a novel can take you to some completely different place. I could be a young woman, living in an apartment, owned by an artist. I could be a junkie, living off scraps of his love. It could be raining outside and everything that I saw could be art. If I [...]

Birthday parties on a balcony – in a beautiful city

By | September 29th, 2017|architecture, bars and restaurants, friends, holidays, light art|

My evening was a feast of the senses. First, a 180 degree view of Port Melbourne from a coast facing balcony on the fifth floor. Absolutely amazing :-) Beers, sparkling, espresso martinis (not for me though, I would be climbing the walls), cheese and nice conversation. Then another view out over the harbour, with lights [...]

I just got the most incredible bunch of flowers for my birthday. They smell so sweet, of Australian wattle. They also have tulips, orange roses and some magnolia. They have added a certain happiness to my day. I am feeling excited about being alive and in the world. It is nice to step out for [...]

Gang of Youths – beautiful, rich, warm sounds

By | July 13th, 2017|holidays, music|

Do you like Gang of Youths? I was lucky enough to find them when I was living on the coast. Triple J would play Magnolia, and it was just the right combination of grit and excitement and bittersweet. I remember waking up at dawn one August morning in 2015, when I was to drive to [...]

Melbourne on holiday – Melbourne as home

By | June 4th, 2017|art, bars and restaurants, holidays, parks and gardens, weather|

I am just remembering one of the first times I came to Melbourne on a holiday from the coast. It was so exciting. There is something about the way that a city resonates when it is unfamiliar and you are there on a holiday. Melbourne doesn't have the same 'buzz' as it did when I [...]
