It would seem that my ‘time zone change at home’ project may have worked!
For about 12 days before we left home,
I started shifting my sleep/awake times. Most notably I shifted my coffee drinking times. Just before leaving I was drinking my ‘morning’ coffee at 3 pm and my ‘afternoon’ coffee at 9 pm.
It seems to have worked!
Of course, this meant that upon arriving here in Melbourne, Australia I had to keep the same coffee schedule. I learned online that Melbourne is world famous for its coffee so we hit the streets and bought coffee at the first shop we came to.
I couldn’t have planned it any better if I had tried. Later when I did a specific search for ‘best coffee in Melbourne’ guess what popped up as #1…yep, Axil Coffee Roasters!
When I travel for work I know I will be seeing horses so I try to stretch myself and look around a bit. While still at home another helpful google search listed the #1 thing to do was drink the coffee and #2 was to see the street art.
Coffee in hand we began walking and…yep, without a map or directions we managed to quickly spy a very painted street. It turned out to be AC/DC street which is one of the most famous streets to visit. If I’m making it sound really easy to have a great experience in Melbourne, Australia that is because it really has been easy.
I do have to admit that although today isn’t an official ‘horse day’ I still managed to see them. One horse was pulling a carriage near a park and the other was a digital horse running in a museum. And one on a magazine. And one on a book. And a few on…lol, I’m not great at avoiding all things horsey:)
