Rue Bee's Coming!!Wednesday, November 17, 2010
Rue Bee, my cousin, and her boyfriend, Winston, are coming to visit us in Melbourne. They arrive in exactly 11 days, and I am so psyched!
They're going to be here for a good 2 weeks, too, which means that we'll have plenty of time to hang out and do the things we want to do!
Which leads me to the real subject of this blogpost - what should we do?
I was thinking of visiting Mount Dandenong - I heard it's beautiful there. I'm not sure if we'll want to make it just a day trip, or whether we should stay a night or two there.
Then, of course, there are the shopping destinations. I wrote a post about them recently, and I'm really looking forward to visiting those places again. Discounts, discounts!
I also want to go to Sorrento, in the Mornington Peninsula area. We went there with my parents when they came over (you can read about it here), and I think it would be great to go there again when the sun is beating down and it's nice and warm, and the beach waters are cool and inviting!
And then there are the wine regions - which one to visit? If we don't want to go too far away, there's the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula (which means we can go to the beach and do wine at the same time), or the Macedon Ranges.
There are also the typical tourist destinations - the Melbourne Aquarium, Queen Victoria Market, Crown, Federation Square.
So much to do, so little time!! Does anyone have an opinion as to what places are a must-see in Melbourne? I can't decide which places to visit or what activities we should do!
