Last week I travelled down to Melbourne for the Formula 1 Grand Prix. We stayed on the 27th floor of the Crown Towers which was stunning and easily the best hotel I have stayed at in Australia. Hubs had arranged a dozen long stemmed red roses for the room on arrival and they also comped us sparkling wine and chocolate- score! Race day was an interesting experience what with the going deaf from the F18 fighter jet and the cars (even with earplugs- please forgive me eardrums!), sitting out in the sun all day and paying $6 each for a bottle of water. It was still fun though and I was psyched Jenson Button won (go McLaren!). Most importantly the food we had in Melbourne was amazing- Nobu, Mr Hive and Greenhouse by Joost all get my thumbs up and a big thanks from my happy belly.
