My next vacation will see me busy looking for apartments in Valencia, Spain … NOT!
Yes, Valencia is the third largest city in Spain and yes, it is famous for its gastronomic culture. And who doesn’t want to visit this wondrous city of heritage with beautiful landmarks like the futuristic museum complex City of Arts and Science or have fun at the annual La Tomatina tomato fight?
Being realistic however and taking into consideration the big budget such an extravagant vacation would cost, it seems more practical to consider someplace closer like Australia! B and I have yet to visit Gold Coast and now that I’ve just found out my BFF Domino or Dommie as I fondly call her is moving there, Australia sounds like a pretty good vacation destination to us.
I am of course thrilled that Dommie’s dream to live abroad one day has come true and she will be enjoying life in beautiful Melbourne starting next year but I am also sad to know that she will no longer be here in PJ, close to me. I’m going to miss her so much and I know Melbourne is not too far away but it’s the whole idea of not being able to see her in a familiar turf that’s bugging me.
I’m already missing her and I will be seeing her as many times as possible before her big day. In fact, we’ll be having dinner with her tonight at Tony Roma’s so I am looking forward to that. I need to store up on some Dommie love before she leaves and the one thing that’s keeping me going right now is the idea of perhaps visiting her in Melbourne one day.
B and I have been to Melbourne twice and both times we stayed with our good buddy Zeffer. So far, we have not stayed in a hotel while vacationing in Melbourne although B has been to Sydney without me. We both would love to visit Gold Coast one fine day and now that Dommie will be based in Australia, our Gold Coast dream vacation might just materialize soon.
To inspire me to kick start my Aussie vacation fund, I am reminding myself of beautiful Melbourne and all that Australia has to offer by posting some of my favourite Melbourne memories. Enjoy the pictures and if anyone is heading to Spain soon, don’t forget to check out the awesome deals on Valencia apartments online first! Happy travelling!
