Updated post - Melbourne has been home for over 20 years now, so it seems only appropriate to share my favourite things to do/visit while in Melbourne with kids in tow....(in no particular order)
The Grampians National Park in Western Victoria is a must see for any visitor the state. So many travellers only plan to visit Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road, but spend a bit more time in Victoria as there are a lot of gorgeous places to visit. There is something to suit everyone especially for those who enjoy the great outdoors! So get out there and see this country
Help! The title says it all - as posted earlier here, I am currently back at Uni and juggling the work load as well as family requirements. This has meant that my gorgeous blog is neglected! Even if I were to write a post today, my soul would not be in the story and would be writing to just hit publish which is not ideal.... So this is how you can help...
Flavigny sur Ozerain - Burgundy - France
One of my favourite discoveries in 2010, during our European odyssey was the cute little tins of mints or lollies found in small delis or 'bureau de tabac' and souvenir shops - so when planning our recent trip to Burgundy - France, I discovered that they are still being made in a small 'village de France' in the old fashion way and I found the town where they are actually made. So it was a must do day trip to be added to our itinerary.
The little town of Flavigny-sur-Ozerain is classified as 'Les Plus Beaux Villages de France' (The most beautiful Villages of France) and for good reason. As you approach the town you get a glimpse of it in the distance, it was truly gorgeous. Flavigny is particularly famous for the production of their Anis of Flavigny lollies(mints) sold in cute tins.
