Destination: Melbourne

Tomorrow is my fiancé's (Karl) last day of work before he takes a much anticipated, and much deserved, nine days off. In a previous blog I mentioned that Karl and I wanted to take a holiday while staying in our wonderful city, we wanted to explore what we have not explored, eat things we have never eaten and pretty much become strangers in an un-strange land.

With much planning and researching we have planned an exciting and adventurous nine days in (and around) Melbourne. Each day will bring something new and different: Mexican food and brunch with a monk for our anniversary, a sojourn in the mountains indulging in s'mores and spas, and a day of retail (and jerky) therapy in a Downtown Hong Kong style shopping plaza.

We planned this week around food, we wanted a culinary adventure, in which we challenged our preconceived notions about certain foods and challenged our taste buds to go along for the ride.

It's going to be a fun week. I really feel as if we are going on a vacation to a new location, I guess we are in a way. I will keep y'all updated on our nine days of Epicurean exploration.
