How was your weekend?
Mine was like this:

Have you ever been to a horse race? I haven't but I guess at some point it is the right time to try everything, right? On Saturday I went to the Emirates Stakes Day, the last racing day of Melbourne Spring Carnival - a full week filled with races, bets, hats and glamour, all happening at the famous race track in Flemington. It is THE week in Melbourne and we even had a public holiday last Tuesday for the most famous race days of all - the Melbourne Cup Day.

We had a great day out with sunshine, champagne and a delicious picnic. Oh yes and there were a couple of races going on as well. I bet on a horse with the wonderful name of Snitzerland (I thought the mixture of Switzerland and Schnitzel is definitely a winner name!!) - it was in lead when they were passing us on the track but in the end I did not win a penny. Well, next time.

Today we started our detox week - and I have to admit that I do not feel good at all. My head is about to explode and my body hurts, not sure if this is already the infamous detox flue or the result of drinking too much champagne yesterday...

Hope you had a nice weekend, what were you  up to? *K


  1. I've never been to the races but I'd love to do it at least once! I think it would be a neat way to spend the day!

    Good luck with the detox!
