was a beautiful day in Melbourne. We spent it in South Melbourne, a funky part of the city filled with quirky gift shops, busy cafés, interesting people and cool vibes. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. The day started off with us shopping on Clarendon Street, spending a while at one of my favourite stationery shops called Paperpoint and having lunch at a place called Grill’d. Their burgers are to die for. After some retail therapy, my sisters and I drove to the beach and were surprised to find the luxurious cruise ship Queen Mary II docked there. It was majestic and striking from a distance. We soaked our feet in the warm sparkling water of Port Phillip Bay, let the sand go between our toes, turned our backs to the waves and bid farewell to a memorable and very hot Australian summer.
