Welcome back to Hayley Lately. Each month, this is where I chat about my life and what I’ve been up to in Melbourne. Keep reading to discover the book I couldn’t put down, my new favourite show and the best Melbourne eats.
March always feels like such a long month compared to February – even though it only has three extra days. Like I can’t believe I began March in New Zealand. The trip already feels like it happened two months ago! Anyway, I arrived in Auckland early in the morning on the 1st March. To celebrate my 30th, I spent four nights in both Auckland and Wellington. I liked Auckland and it had some good qualities, like the waterfront, Mount Eden and delicious food. But Wellington won me over, even if the weather wasn’t optimal. It was such a cool city, with plenty of fun things to do. From the cable car to WETA Workshop to (once again) THE FOOD, I would totally return.
Back to Melbourne and I was back to work immediately. Between the museum, writing and the AFL season beginning again, my life is back to its usual busy normal.
Get set for posts on all the amazing food I ate in Auckland and Wellington. But back in Melbourne, I did venture out a couple of times as well. I finally visited Abbotsford Convent with a friend and I finally tried Lentil as Anything. On this particular sunny Saturday afternoon, there was a vegetarian buffet lunch. The concept is that you either pay what you want ($12 covers your meal) or volunteer your time instead. The food was delicious. I also recommend checking out the bakery around the corner ;)
