our melbourne honeymoon

our honeymoon travel planner was none other than my dearest, fabulous, absolutely talented sister! she also did our programme sheets, but i'll leave that for another time.


seriously, there is no way one can find a better travel planner. this sweet one has got personal little notes for us everyday, with a certain theme, sharing from God's word, and little presents to accompany them! For example, a the trip to Great Ocean Road came with a customised song CD so we could listen to it on the way. Our supposed horse-riding trip (which did not come to fruition) came with sunblock lotion. Add more of such thoughtful tokens to many days in Melbourne and you get a very happy us! :)


well, not EXACTLY...which was a pity, hehe. we arrived at this absolutely GORGEOUS place in Yarra Valley but had a little tiff over the minutest of things, and so, we were not really able to soak up the lovely atmosphere. i want to go back, hehe....


This place is called Harvest Farm, and our travel planner made the perfect choice of booking the Dairy House.

this quaint little cottage is pretty much a place i would like to live in! in terms of the warmth, the decor, the environment. the bedroom (there were 2, we chose the one above) had a door that opened to the backyard, and this little bird tapped on it in the morning to give us a morning call! we walked out and there were chickens, cows...horses....just like a little farm :)






the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed.. but nah, we did not cook anything although there was the option of cooking our own breakfast.




loving the idea of hanging crockery from a ladder!



we walked out to the field...


and saw two beautiful horses!


however...there was big big obstacle...a large part of the grass was poop-laden...hmmm...


eventually, PP piggy-backed me so we could capture some close-ups of the horses.. :)





beautiful place, but as usual, in summer, you get the problem of flies, flies, flies!

This was truly a very nice place, should have stayed there for a few more nights. And definitely a place to go with friends too! But beware of the "mighty-big" spider that may be found at the corner of the ceiling:P
