A Grand Day Out.

Last Monday my grandmother and I had the most wonderful day out. We visited the Vienna exhibition at the NGV International, had a delicious dessert lunch and went up the Eureka Tower. It was so wonderful!

On our walk up from Flinders Street train station to the art gallery, we went past this Kombi coffee machine. The opportunity to have a kombi coffee was too good to pass up! The man serving was very nice and his little daughter who was with him had the most beautiful gold hair. Very jealous indeed!

Next, was our visit to the Vienna exhibition. It was absolutely fantastic! I haven't been to such a wonderful exhibition in such a long while. We went to the Art Deco exhibit a few years back and I found it a bit underwhelming. This exhibit had a wonderful mixed collection of all sorts of things from all sorts of artists. Plus, I love Klimt's work. Although not a Klimt work, the above painting was one of my favourites. Gran and I stood in front of it for a while nitpicking all the dresses on display. Such vibrant colours in the painting, even today!

Grandma insisted she wanted a dessert lunch and so there was only one place I could take her, really. The same place were Lover Boy took me for my birthday celebrations, Meat & Wine Co. Our order: The Grande Finale. Gran was amazed and delighted! (Also, please note how stunning and fashionable my gran is in the picture above! I hope to be a stunner like her one day)

The Eureka Tower tour was the next. I have never seen the view from Eureka so clear and crisp. It was magnificent. Here's a picture of Fed Square, St. Pauls Cathedral and Flinders Street Station. Melbourne truly is a beautiful city :) I'll have to do a separate post for all the pictures I have from the Eureka tower.

I can't wait for my next grand day out with my grandma! <3


  1. I'm jealous! That looks like a great way to spend a day in Melbourne. I'm glad you had such a good day with your fashionable Gran.

  2. Your pictures of Melbourne and whats happening there at the moment is making me homesick! It looks like a lovely place to be right now!
