Just call me Tour Guide Noreen.

The last few weeks have been filled with visitors from home, yippie! Having all these friends visit makes Melbourne seem closer to home than it really is. And after all the friend visits, my family will be here, YAY!!!

My first visitors were Nicole and her Kiwi bf Ansen. They’re semi-visitors because after they do some traveling they’ll be permanently re-locating to Melbourne. I’m so excited to have them as neighbors in Melbourne. Nicole is a drunk betch like me and likes food just as much. That being said, their week with me consisted of an extremely thorough restaurant and pub tour. We ate and drank our faces off each day. Melbourne’s cuisine is so diverse and DELICIOUS. The food here is worthy.

Next visitors: Kathleen and Elizabeth! The girls are on an around the world tour and stopping in Australia for nearly 2 months. We’re also planning on traveling to the Whitsunday islands together as well.

Last but certainly not least: Deanna! Deanna is my old roommate Raymond’s little sister. She is also like a little sister to me. Together we saw all the Melbourne must-see attractions and dined like queens. She also broke my shopping boycott. Melbourne is an extremely fashion forward and conscious city, and normally I would consistently indulge, but since I am on a strict budget I have restrained myself. However, Deanna’s visit included heaps of shopping and I came away with some unique purchases.

Luckily I had one night all together with Deanna, Kathleen, Elizabeth, Nicole and Ansen, so I cooked a shrimp taco feast for all of my visitors and the girls—‘twas a hit!

Come visit if you can, friends. Qantas has some incredible deals right now (800 roundtrip)! And I have a huge bed ☺
