Goodbye to the Melbourne winter

I’m saying goodbye to the Melbourne winter

Cold old Melbourne winter

Windy cold icy Melbourne winter

Still cold Melbourne winter where the weak sun warms the skin but not the bones.

My home town

In many ways a beauty by the bay

View of Melbourne from Williamstown on a clear winters day

She sparkles at night

Arts centre and cafes in Bourke Street

And by some standards its not as cold as others suffer

You can even ride your motorbike.

But when the icy rain falls from the grey skies

Its time for this adventurer to give his goodbyes.

Welcome me the warm arms of Europa.

Chapter 3 of my European motorcycle adventure is about to begin.

  1. I love that photo on Bourke Street. The leaves on the street are just perfect. Thought of you the other day, was looking on Craiglist and Boat Trader at boats, just to look. Like window shopping online. hehe Knowing full well we are not ready in any way (financially, knowledge, work, still have animals to care for). But one can dream.
    Here is to long, warm days and nights for you – at least until cold old Melbourne Winter rears his grouchy head again.
