Well hello and Happy 2018!
Last weekend I visited the much talked about (and Instagrammed) Intermission Project at the Collingwood Arts Precinct. The project showcases over 35 artists who had the freedom to decorate walls, floors and stairwells of the 3 floor vacant Collingwood Technical School.

Currently open at 35 Johnson Street Collingwood and runs until this Sunday, January 21st.
Last but certainly not least on our amazing holiday was Brooklyn, New York! Landing late from Canada we arrived at our Williamsburg Airbnb to be reunited with our excited travel buddies Jess and Ryan. Equally excited we could not wait to explore our super cool borough of Brooklyn.
In no particular order here’s a few highlights from in and around Brooklyn.
Easter is a great time to visit Perth as most locals are out of town. If the sun is shining, you’re more than likely to have most of the beach to yourself. This easter, Perth didn’t let us down, greeting us with two glorious sky blue days and the perfect excuse to check out City Beach.
Last Sunday we wandered the streets of Collingwood and discovered Fintan Magee’s new mural ‘The Refugee’. This absolutely huge mural is situated on the side of the very cool five level End to End building on Easey Street, Collingwood, Melbourne.
Our sunny Autumn morning started with a coffee at Soldier On in Prahran, then into the city for a New York style lunch at Bowery to Williamsburg. A photo walk took us through China Town’s laneways, then over to Curtin House for a browse of one of Melbourne’s best (and remaining) bookshops, Metropolis. Finally, what better way to end a glorious Melbourne afternoon than a cheeky donut or two at Shortstop.
