Saturday three weeks ago proved to be a warm one in Melbourne, where anyone who’s spent time in this world-class city knows that living in hope for continuous bursts of good weather is living in vain.

My buddy and I love the place and choose to spend every week living between two great Australian metropolises to tell the tales of each. This particular Saturday, we wandered down Ferrars St from our place in Albert Park, cut through South Melbourne markets (grabbing a burek as we passed from the ‘cash only’ strict owner of the outlet that boosts us with carbs) to get us to Flinders Lane in the heart of the city. These precincts are property hot spots for Melbournians, full of cafes, period houses and proximity to just about everything.
