We had takeaway and a bottle of wine on Saturday night (well we were both tired and wanted to rest our weary backs), but ended up having a late night anyway.
We were slugs on Sunday morning as it was Jay’s birthday and only made it out in time for an early lunch at The Organic Food and Wine Company
Delicious coffees and vegan pies (dhal for Jay, Mexican bean for me) later we walked off to the National Gallery of Victoria for some culture. It’s a big modern place with a pretty cool collection of art and treasures, from Ming dynasty vases, 4000BC Egyptian tablets and pottery, a smattering of Rembrandts, Picassos, Hockneys, Constables and Turners. We were a bit over the endless rooms of 19th and 20th century European art by the end of it so scooted off back to Degraves St for a coffee and cupcake from the tiny and gorgeous ‘Little Cupcake’ before going back to the hotel for a rest.
We got a late dinner in Nandos (who have a few vegan-able options) then dodged the rain showers back to the hotel for a night of tv and wine 🙂
