About DBR

I'm a Kiwi living in Melbourne. I moved here a little over a year ago with my husband (otherwise known as OH). Together we enjoy an active social life, discovering all the benefits that Melbourne has to offer. We mostly enjoy eating out, live Theatre and Comedy. My intention is for this blog to be a online journal of our escapades in Melbourne, keeping track of where we go, what we do and how we enjoyed it, or didn't if that's the case. It's also important to know that I am a Michelle Bridges 12wbt disciple, so that will also pop up from time to time. My aim is to be fit and healthy and still enjoy going out to the many awesome restaurants and cafes that Melbourne has on offer.

A Flock of Kiwis

What do you call more than one Kiwi.  I googled what a group of Kiwis would be called and learned that there is no official term for more than one Kiwi -so a flock it is. Last weekend we were … Continue reading
