Melbourne: Family is Family..........Worldwide :->
Something you feel when you travel alone is homesick. That is if you don´t meet with family.
For me Melbourne is a BIG Milestone on this trip, I MET MY AUSTRALIAN (Aussie) FAMILY for the 1st time!!
Uncle Gordon (son of my Grandmother´s brother John, so we are cousins on 2nd degree, but I find Uncle an appropriate term since he´s from my dad´s generation) is a very cool dude. Has his own business going and also works as a DJ. And he also finds time to grow his own crop and makes his own dried tomatoes in his little backyard farm ;->
Aunt Janette is the sweetest Aussie aunt you could expect. We went shopping in the Victoria Market, and she showed my Uncle Gordon´s favorite eastern European store (the Hungarian blood in us have their say). We saw the most amazing size and varieties of seafood, and wine tasting and shopping of the Australian specialties was also lovely.
And their son Jesse is a Cricket star.
Girls watch out this guy is something else!
