Camping in Autumn!

We went camping last weekend and the weather was perfect! We walked by the river, walked along the beach, walked in the water, walked on the squeaky sand and walked 3.4 km up to the summit of Mt. Oberon! I'll share about our trip soon. Where is it? Wilsons Promontory - about 3.5 hours drive from Melbourne.

p/s: If you're thinking about going away for a nature trip this coming weekend, then make your bookings soon. Go here for info and booking: Wilsons Prom. *If this weekend is already full, then Wilsons Prom should be in your list of places to visit in the future :)

Leisure Cycling from Port Melbourne to St. Kilda Beach

Melbourne is a cyclist-friendly city, and we should really take opportunity to enjoy its facilities. On top of that, the geography of Melbourne makes it such a beautiful place to live. Since it's a port city, we get the city and the sea both in one place!

Given such a beautiful weather -sunny and cool - the outdoor is where you would want to be. Furthermore, enjoying nature is FREE ;)

Cycling to/from Port Melbourne -St. Kilda Beach is a good and easy route, even for families with small kids. There's a dedicated bike lane so you won't get in the way of pedestrians.

Ride or bring your bikes there; or if you haven't got one, you can rent them for a day from the bike hires (google bike hires melbourne). Or, buy cheap used bikes at Melbourne Gumtree (online classified ads).

Luna Park @ St. Kilda

So you feel like going to a carnival to reminisce some childhood memories, yeah? Then it's time to take yourself, your friends, your spouse, your kids, nephews and nieces to Luna Park! Where every weekend is a festive weekend. Yes, entrance is free, but you have to buy tickets to get on the rides. This theme park may seem small from the outside, but there's a lot to see from the inside.

Sahara Cafe

We've heard of Halal pizza that's inexpensive and tasted really good at Sydney Rd, but haven't came around to try it... until last week. We decided to have dinner at Sahara Cafe on our way to the airport to send my friends. And pizza was on the menu!

So here's some traces of our visit to Sahara.

It's located at 627 Sydney Rd, Brunswick, near to Istanbul Halal Meat.

View of the interior.

This one is a large family size pizza priced at AUD 17. It's a supreme so we got all the lots! Huge slices... enough to feed 4 adults.

They have cakes, desserts n coffee too.

So next time you're around Sydney Rd, and thinking of pizza, remember Sahara.

p/s: there's heaps of Halal eateries there that we haven't tried too! Do share with us if you've been to some :)
