This week and next Melbourne is all about the Australian Open. The city is invaded (welcomingly) by thousands of visitors here to take part in the action and activities. In true style we have provided no consistency in weather but have provided a lot of fun opportunities to get involved.   Bean, Dino, Spider, CJ and I headed to the courts on Wednesday evening post work on evening ground passes ($20 pre paid or $25 on the day).

Man you have style…
*don't forget to enter the La Clinica giveaway here* You may have begun to work out by now I haunt the NGV quite a bit. I love that it's a free art gallery in Melbourne and no matter how often I visit I always find something new to see. I am also exceptionally good at getting lost in the connecting galleries.
