A little trip away

My time in Melbourne was Amazing, it was really nice to get away from the "real" world and spend a couple of fun filled days with good friends. We spent Sunday night with one of my best friends from uni who moved to Melbourne last year. He became like a big brother to me at uni and I love getting to see him. We had a few drinks and than headed to the casino (Melbourne has the best casino in Aus). I dont really like gambling so i let the boys go and I just enjoyed watching all the different people there. Unfortunately no wins but I think the boys had fun.

Brendan and me out the front of my friends apartment.
Monday was spent eating and shopping, two of my favourite things! Than Tuesday we headed to Big Day Out. I had never been to a music festival this big and it was hard to comprehend that 60,000 people were going to be there, it was massive. It was such a fun day, and one of my highlights was hearing the Temper Trap sing Sweet Disposition (think 500 days of Summer) it sent shivers up my spine. Lily Allen was pretty good too, but we were way back in the crowd and couldnt see her very well. I didnt realise she was retiring, apparently this was one of her last shows.

Our little gang.

Lily Allen and how ridiculously far back we were.

Overall an amazing few days away and now I am exhausted and have a 101 things to catch up on. Let me know how your week is going.
