Home in Melbourne Australia

The trouble with writing about travel is that you tend to concentrate on places elsewhere, rather than on your own. And so, I’ve decided to become a tourist in my own town. 584 more words

Royal Arcade

This arcade was designed at the end of the nineteenth century by George Skipper, a local architect who was fond of late-art nouveau flourishes. It links the market place to the edge of the Castle Mall development, and there’s no doubt it possesses a lot of character; walking through it is like stepping back in time a hundred years, but unfortunately the shops don’t really do it for me. 68 more words

【墨尔本】27.11.2014 Puffing Billy

我特别喜爱 Puffing Billy 这个名字。或许就是因为他也叫 Billy 的私心。

早上的时候,我传了简讯告诉他: We’re going to try on Puffing Billy today!

不知怎么的,他也顿时兴奋了起来。相隔两地的人,因为这么一丁点小事,而快乐起来。这几天眼睛看到什么新奇的事物,心里也想着要跟他分享。旅行的意义,让我们的心更靠近。

刚出发的时候,我们先是穿越了墨尔本市中心的一处高级住宅区,来到了布莱登海滩 (Brighton Beach)。在照片中时常看到这里色彩缤纷的海边小屋,煞是极阳光的海滩。很多情侣都选择来到这个充满色彩的海边拍摄婚纱照 —— 蓝色的大海,彩色的小屋,幼细的沙子,金色的夕阳,白色的婚纱,灿烂的笑容,这是属于 Brighton Beach 的浪漫。

导游加解,其实这些彩色小房屋是有钱人的玩意儿,用处在于储藏水上活动的用具。当然,这些价值不菲的私人财产,并非我们说要看就可以随意开来看的。虽然,我的心里总有一股偷窥的冲动。 16 more words

Sticky circles of sickly sweetness

You may have guessed how I feel about macarons from the title of this post. (And how about that alliteration!) I sometimes think I am the only woman in the world not to have jumped on the macaron bandwagon. 55 more words
