“Reality is wrong.” – Tupac Shakur
And that was what our dearest travel bug love to tell us, coming on a home stretch of an adventure. Reality is, every road trip has an end, despite what we wished it to be: an endless dream.

” A daydream is an evasion” – Thomas Merton
It was a daydream, a reverie that Miss Hoggy could only do to escape the mountain of work stacked in front of her. Assignments, deadlines, household chores… it’s no surprise that the travel bug hit her in her moment of stationary.

― Jules Verne, Around the World in Eighty Days
The chance of travelling all seemed lost when Miss Hoggy arrived home. Determined to fight the Avioleavitis bug, ever the wanderlust, she decided to pack up again, towing some friends along, and went on a small road trip.

And Melbourne CBD, a melting pot of culture, is a good start to explore all things food.
One thing that she did miss overseas was the burning taste of chilli, in its variation. So it’s no wonder that her first few days of this road trip were intensely hot. Literally.
Warning: Flamingly delicious food to follow. Continue reading “Around Victoria in 10 days (Part 1)”
