Place 43 – Day 2: Melbourne – Birthday Steak Dinner 

We woke up and went straight to the shop to get breakfast. We had an English muffin with egg & bacon and it was topped off with a beautiful view of Melbourne from our apartment!

We found a hairdresser and walked to them as we both thought we’d get a haircut today. We got there and were told the price and weren’t sure both on the price and the quality, so we left, bought a chocolate milkshake from the supermarket and headed home.

We relaxed for a bit and then left for dinner. 

Curtis had booked a steakhouse and so we went and had a steak. They had a $40 2 course deal so we got one of those each. Kim had a rump steak with a mushroom sauce and chips and Curtis had a porterhouse steak with peppercorn sauce and chips. We also got a wine included each! 

For dessert, Kim ordered vanilla ice cream with Mars bar sauce and Curtis ordered ‘triple sorbet’.

As it was a celebration for Kim’s birthday, Kim was also given a chocolate lava cake and sparkler with her dessert!

We left here and went to the supermarket to buy a cheap bottle of wine to have whilst relaxing and watching TV. 

When we got back, we went to the on site spa area. There was a hot tub, pool, gym and sauna. We wanted to relax in the hot tub, but it was a cold tub rather than a hot tub, so we went and sat in the sauna for a bit. 

We went back to the room and watched TV for a while whilst having some wine and snacks..A perfect evening for us!

We leave this apartment tomorrow, but we’ll still be in Melbourne!
