On Sunday my dear friend Chris celebrated his 25th birthday, so in honour of the occasion we packed our bags and drove 750km to Melbourne to party with him. We left Adelaide at 5am and arrived in Melbourne at about 3pm. Chris, Rach, Amanda and I stayed in the Space Hotel  in a dorm with two other lovely room mates, Geoff and Michael. We ate the most delicious fried chili tofu at Dragon House then partied like there was no tomorrow  at The Provinical, Cape Live Bar (later known as "Cape Fear") and Laundry. Saturday consisted of sleeping in, big brekkies, a few hours of shopping (we were too fragile to hit it hard) and naps. On Saturday night we had drinks at Hells Kitchen, dinner at The Quarter, then more drinks at Lustre Lounge before buying a few cheeky bottles of wine and Fosters and heading back to the hostel. At midnight we sang Chris happy birthday and partied out front of the hostel with all our new friends. Sunday started with hostel check-out, breakfast at the amazing Tin Pot Cafe in Fitzroy and a long drive home. It was an amazing weekend with my dearest friends, but I sure was glad to sleep in my own bed again.
