This weekend, my parents and younger brother headed down to Canberra - they invited me along to save me from a long, lonely weekend while V is away. Plus I reeeeally wanted to go!
Drinkies at the Belgian beer cafe...
We are introduced to the wonder that is truffle honey - drizzled over gorgonzola picante, OMG the nomness!
More drinkies, at the Julep lounge (sadly under new management and re-named the Tulip lounge - disappointed!)
Much coffee was drunk, naturally
We took in the Handwritten exhibition at the National Library - seeing the scribbles and notes of the likes of Goethe, Darwin, Kant, Dickens and Descartes moved me almost to tears (laugh if you will, its true!) Having read and studied and idolised their writing for years, to see these remnants of them, in their own script, was a truly amazing experience.
And, of course, we visited the Renaissance exhibition at the Gallery - absolutely, totally stunning!
Highly recommend paying extra for the premium early entry tickets, it was lovely to be able to wander around in relative silence without any crowds
Hope the weekend has been treating you all well!
