Kim’s Travel Diary

Thursday, 13 Mar 2008

Location: Melbourne to Albury, Australia

MapThe beginning of this week was spent as normal walking the city and seeing. Managed to fit in the Zoo and the Aquarium as well as the National Art Gallery and Museum of Modern Art, so am feeling very cultural at the moment. On of the other joys that I have found is the Victoria Markets within the city. This is a huge market selling everything from fruit and vegetables to clothes and junk with a wonderful meat and fish market thrown in as well. I have spent hours wondering around here buying food for dinner, amazing cheeses and pates and just sitting drinking coffee and watching all the people pass by. Poor Jeff has had to put up with me cooking dinner for him. It is the only thing that I can do to say thank you and so far I have not managed to poison him, thank goodness!!

We are going up to a place called Albury today as Jeff has a meeting and then onto Falls Creek for the weekend. Jeff has friends that run a hotel there and have asked me to stay!!
