Final Stay in Melbourne

Our final visit to Neal and Laura in Melbourne was bitter sweet. We were visiting good friends for the last time, and we were ready to head home and see our families and friends on Canadian soil.
We arrived on a weekend so Neal and Laura took us out to the Yarra Valley. It was only a short drive outside of Melbourne and we were surrounded by beautiful fall coloured hills. The fresh country air must have gotten to the guys because they were enamoured with the apples of our first cider stop… and each other.

We made a few vineyard stops as well as a dairy stop for some delicious cheese. The large bottle of wine Laura and I are sitting with was the exact wine that Prince Harry gifted to Will and Kate for their wedding after party – 60 bottles to be exact!
After a great day of wine tasting we went for wood burning oven made pizza.

 Jeff and I went out for lunch on our last day and enjoyed some great food before emptying out our Australian bank account…the final task of our travelling days. We sure are going to miss this amazing country.
