Stamp collector’s dream

Sat 17th December 2011

We stumbled upon this amazing stamp and coin shop in the laneways. It went on forever and housed thousands and thousands of stamps.

I’ve never seen a shop so big dedicated to selling collectable stamps. It was huge! There must be thousands of stamps from all over the world in there.

We couldn’t beleive the size of this place! It’s incredible to consider how many stamps they own.

 

Festive cheer

Fri 16th December 2011

There was a huge Christmas tree in one of the shopping malls we visited, so Matt got arty and decided to take my photograph through the bauble.

If you look closely you can see Claire smiling back at you (and me taking the photo).

Christmas decor

Fri 16th December 2011

There are Christmas decorations everywhere in Melbourne. A strange sight when it’s 30 degrees outside! We don’t feel festive at all, so seeing them is always a bit of a surprise.

Matt

Matt says...

I must admit I don’t feel Christmassy at all. It’s just too hot! I’m used to wearing gloves and freezing my butt off on a train platform before work!

Yummy cakes

Fri 16th December 2011

The Laneways are full of scrummy looking cafes . This particular one specialised in French pastries and the window display looked good enough to eat!

Matt

Matt says...

We found the bestest(sic) shop in the world! I love cake! You almost feel bad eating them, they look so good! Taste good too!

The Laneways

Fri 16th December 2011

Today we explored the laneways in Melbourne city centre. They’re a huge network of cobbled street, lined with cafes and boutique shops.

Matt says...

There’s a big cafe culture in Melbourne. One of the reasons it reminds me of Brighton.

 
Claire

Claire says...

Loved this, just like Brighton they have a unique charm about them. Great for Christmas presents too (wish we could post everything back)!
