Description:
Offered the professional opportunity of a lifetime, Peta leaves her coastal life and doting boyfriend James in Sydney for a 12 month stint in the 'fashion capital of Australia', Melbourne.

Peta's holy grail will never be an IVF created baby, but rather the title 'Minister for Cultural Product'.

Once assimilating into the Melbourne culture by dressing in mostly black (she refuses to ditch her favourite watermelon coat), Peta finds comfort in the cake shops of Acland Streets and wine bars between St Kilda and the city. She fights off homesickness by making friends with Greek-Aussie eco-poet Sylveye-a, Koori parking cop Josie, Ingrid the wise whitefella in her department, and Annie, an old school friend now married with two kids and a social worker. The highlight of her stay though, is the experience of astral travelling after her nights out in the city's finest restaurants. Dinner in Lygon Street takes her to Venice and Florence, Johnston Street takes her to Barcelona and Madrid, dinner in the city's finest French restaurant lea Please click here to ask a question
