Melbourne in Winter

I went on a business trip to Melbourne recently. Touched down at 7.00 a.m. on 2nd June - officially the 2nd day of winter. It was 5 degrees outside, much colder then I thought.

Flying nowadays is usually a disappointing experience. You just don't feel the romance of travel any more, what with the constant warnings on things we can't take on board, long queues at the check-in counters, etc. And the in-flight service, don't even talk about it ! Just see what they serve for a mid-night snack and judge for yourself.

This is a view of Melbourne - it was really foggy most of the time.

Burke Street Mall. This view hasn't changed over the years except for the new street furniture.

The Myers shop-windows, a crowd favourite especially for their Christmas decorations. Right now they are featuring a New York Themed display.

I always check out the food gallery in David Jones to see what's new. It hasn't changed much since my last visit a year ago. The pastry section is still very tempting though !
