    Melbourne Zoo – Part Two

    Apart from the Elephants, the Butterfly house was my favourite part of the zoo (don’t make me choose between them!). I could have stayed in there for hours! Having them fly around and land on you was magical, though it took a while to get used to the sensation of something touching your hair. Hundreds, maybe thousands(?) of butterflies from small to large, in a rainbow of colours are housed here. Oh, and as it was a cold 12ish degrees outside, the Butterfly House is heated to 28 degrees, so it was a nice place to sit down and warm up! Lucky butterflies! The Lemurs are sooooo cute! You enter Lemur…

    Melbourne Zoo – Part One

    Ever since I started spending more time in Melbourne, visiting the zoo has been at the top of the list. I love animals, and I love visiting Zoos and Wildlife Parks. The last time I went to Melbourne Zoo, I would have been around 12, and the only thing I remember is seeing a Gorilla. The above are Peccaries, and I can’t remember seeing them before! They are the first animal I was greeted too when entering the Zoo through the entrance near the train track. They were all kinds of adorable and when I came home to look up more info on them, I wasn’t surprised they are related to…

    Zoo Week – Meerkats & Giraffes!

    In the description for the Hippo encounter, it says you get to meet some other animals. I honestly didn’t pay it much mind because I was just so super excited to meet the hippos, but I was very happy to find out we’d get to feed the meerkats and giraffes! We got to feed the male group that is situated in front of the giraffe exhibit. It was a family group of 10, I believe it was the father and his sons. It was an odd experience reaching into a plastic chinese container and grabbing a handful of live worms and scattering them in to the enclosure. Then we made our way to…

    Zoo Week – Meeting the hippos!

    I love hippos, I don’t know when I feel in love with hippos, or when I decided that I wanted to meet some, but it did. I remember one time while looking at the Adelaide Zoo website, that they did a ‘Behind the scenes tour‘ with the 2 hippos they have! After waiting a few years due to not having  funds, then moving back to Sydney, I wasn’t sure if I’d get the chance.  So when I decided to visit Adelaide I made the decision i’d dip into my savings and finally cross it off my bucket list. I am so glad I did. SO GLAD. The Hippo encounter cost…

    Zoo Week – OOTD

    This outfit isn’t something i’d normally wear. Since I started blogging, i’ve learnt to ‘think outside the box’. The tickets for the ‘Hippo Encounter’ stated ‘Closed shoes, no red, no bright colours’. As that is a great part of my wardrobe & I only had carry on luggage, I had to get somewhat creative. Didn’t help the temperature was super hot SINGLET – Target. BLOUSE – c/o Dream Diva. SHORTS – Crossroads. SOCKS – Random cheap shop store at local shopping center. SHOES – Florsheim c/o Westfield NECKLACE – c/o Nicole Fendel
