How to successfully turn 20

Macarons from Queen Victoria Market

Hey kids, I have a few tips for you on how to have a great birthday weekend. 

1. Spend the weekend Melbourne, that backwater over the border.

Sure, you might have to put up with a few Vics, but it's worth it for the sample sales in Fitzroy and $4 pizza at Lucky Coq.

2. Have macarons for the first time.

It doesn't get any better than salted caramel flavour.

3. Enlist a talented friend to follow you around with a guitar

to provide a soundtrack to your monumental day. Eating hot cross buns in mushroom-populated woods is that much better when jazzy melodies are pirouetting through the air. 

4. Catch up with a friend you haven't seen in months.

Commit the memories to film, because when your memories fail, chemistry won't.
