#VoicesOf2013

#VoicesOf2013 organised by Kidspot was my first 'blogger conference' and I didn't know what to expect, plus I heard about it from the ever-informed Marlee at String Of Events.  So I felt lucky and excited to be going to a blogging event, by bloggers and for bloggers.  The event was free and I was completely blown away by the high standard and the attention to detail.

Had to giggle as I took this photo, Marlee and two other bloggers were stood next to me doing the exact same

The Mess Hall & The ACMI

By Sunday morning my long weekend had already exhausted me.  I'd gone for drinks and Chinese food with a couple of folk from work on Friday evening (turned out to be the worst Chinese ever, but that's another blog for another day!), walked along Point Nepean and back and rushed myself to dinner on Chapel Street for an old University friend's birthday on Saturday.  Nevertheless on Sunday morning I got myself up and went into the city to meet Jess, Phil and co for breakfast.  I last saw Jess and Phil when we had dinner at Pho Chu The.  This time we all met at The Mess Hall on Bourke Street - not to be confused with the one in Brunswick.

Sorrento & Point Nepean, Victoria

On Saturday I caught up with peninsula girl C.  C and I worked together at the start of the year at one of the many Universities in Melbourne and haven't seen each other since then.  She lives way down the Mornington Peninsula in a place called Sorrento.

I hopped on the Frankston line (catch it from Flinders, Richmond or South Yarra station) and she picked me up at the station just as the sun was beginning to shine.  Taking the coastal route we made our way to Sorrento for one of the famous vanilla slices you can get here.
