You've never seen Melbourne like this

I read this line at a sales centre at Docklands in Mel and thought if I ever end up writing a post on this city, this would be my title :)
Melbourne was our first stop & how ironic that it will be my last post on Aussie land. Perhaps, I needed to be in solitude to write about this very special city.
It was given that I would have a good time here  since one of my soul mates resided in the city but S you made sure it was much more than that - it was re-living one of the most special bonds in my life, in the company of a friend I have known for years and in whose company I always come alive to be who I really am - there is no pretence, nothing to hide and S is fun infinitely multiplied :)
Thank you for being such a wonderful host. I miss you and love you loads as you already know :)
So back to Mel now, the city is full of art & culture, Asians and plenty of yummy Asian food. Here it's difficult to feel you're in Oz and not HK or Singapore :)
Mel is also known for the great ocean drive - supposedly one of the best drives in the world. The great ocean road leads you to the 12 apostles, marvelous stand alone limestone formations rising from the sea. When you see them you feel as though you've almost reached the end of the world. Stunning.
Without any more talk, let me take you through some pictorial highlights from our trip to Melbourne:
12 Apostles
View from Great Ocean Road
Yara River
Highly recommended Thai restaurant
Bidding Adieu to S

I loved Melbourne when I visited Oz three years ago. Your pix bought back lovely memories. Did you see the cow in the tree and the three cast iron men?
