My husband and I stopped one day for a late lunch and it felt like we were sitting at a table at a cafe in Europe - France, possibly, as we were eating at a creperie. A lovely atmosphere.

No trip to Melb is complete without a stroll down Hardware Lane and the surrounding lanes. One of my favourite areas of the CBD.

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
