If you’re looking for night life, shopping, fun touristy things, lovely weather and good food – San Francisco is the spot.

When I was deciding where in America I should move to, San Francisco was a strong contender. Only for my gut said ‘ Go to Oregon Zita!’,  I would have ended up down there. I’m glad to know now that it still wouldn’t have been a wrong decision. This past August I was lucky enough to visit for two very different, very special occasions with two awesome sets of company. Full disclosure, I’ve no idea how this post is going to come out as I’m 3 months behind on it (actually to the day nearly lol!) and I’m dredging up a lot from my old lady memory bank. I’m really wheeling back the time machine wheels for this one haha! Continue reading “San Francisco – August 2017”

Explore The City – Melbourne Visitor Shuttle

To help myself navigate around the city I decided to use one of the hop on hop off bus services. The Melbourne Visitor Shuttle offers a $10 ticket that is valid for 2 days. It includes 13 stops with running commentary about the main sites of Melbourne. I did one stop on my own on Thursday but started the actual tour on Friday with Rachel and continued it on Saturday. We didn’t do all of the stops but got the main areas done.

Federation Sq: Fed Sq included the Melbourne Visitor Centre, Federation Sq main area, the Ian Potter Centre, Birrarung Marr and William Barrack Bridge, The Federation Bells, Flinders St Station, St Paul’s Cathedral and Hozier Lane. The Ian Potter Centre is full of Australian art pieces and is worth a visit. Hozier Lane (which is basically across the street) is a really interesting spot with graffiti everywhere!
