Location: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

MapMy first day in Melbourne....feeling cold and lost so the first point of call was the visitors centre. Picked up as many leaflets as a could then roamed the streets of melbourne looking for a jacket/jumper. Shops shops shopping shopping! It was like being in Barcelona but more shops than you can imagine. I just kept on wondering from arcade to arcade din't really have a clue where i was going. Spent some time doing email stuff and then visited Federation Square (where galleries/bars/museums are). Funny looking building, not sure if i like the architecture but i took a picture of them anyway. Melbourne reminds me of england so much, may be because of the weather and the old style buildings. Visited the 'eyes lies and illusions' exhibition in The Australian Centre for Moving Image, it was amazing.... spent ages in there puzzled by the illusions. Did some food shopping with Jenni then headed back to hers for a quiet night in.
