Just completed my visit to Melbourne which was of duration approximately 50 hours. I was here for a business rendezvous with couple of large Enterprises. Now returning back after a successful stint. I travelled here on a budget airline with a single carry-on piece (and a laptop) with a restriction of 7KG (all inclusive). So I had to let go of all the usual gadgets that I travel with, and settled for 6D with 50mm lens. Check out the pics clicked during 50hrs stint, on my 50mm, as I travelled between apartment hotel and work, with brief stops for brekkie, brunch, and more. Yep, I am happy to be back home so soon, and just in time for the weekend.

Someone commented, “How did you do so much stuff, in 50 hrs”.  Do you have superhuman powers? All these places for brekkie/brunch/dinner are in 15 min walk from the hotel apartment, on Chappel street where I stayed.  Mornington Peninsula is an hour from office, to which my colleague drove me for quiet planning session (at a family boutique) ahead of the big meeting.  Coffee shop is in our office building. Pub you see is at train station at Flinders, few blocks from our office. Do u need super human powers to do all of these?  Just need a will to experience good food and intent to capture memories to document. I walked 13000 steps for day, to burn off the calories.
