Weekend Getaway – Day 3

Day three of the Canberra trip started off with going to the Sunday market. I’m not too sure if it was called the Victorian market or something, totally forgot actually, but yeah we entered the place which had everything (it felt like it). They had food stalls and stuff you can buy toys/plants etc from and everything.

We were there to eat since it was roughly noon and we were getting hungry. B suggested to get a table first since the place apparently got really busy and was popular so after we found a table all of us could fit on we decided to go order some food. I ended up ordering a crepe which was actually really massive and filling by the time I was almost finished eating it, swear I had a food baby after. We also got these orange juice drinks which were amazingly really sweet and honestly the best orange juice I’ve ever tasted.

The man that sold the orange juice owned this amazing orange crusher death machine to make the orange juice. I swear I spent like a while staring at it haha. After we wondered around the place we then walked to this glass museum and watched how they made glass and whatnot.

Once we were bored of the glass making we made our way back to the car and B drove us to War Memorial. I swear going into that place is absolutely depressing. I mean people sacrifice their life for your freedom and here I am typing up a blogpost. It felt like it had a sad atmosphere I reckon, and we were there for about 2-3 hours since the place was massive to wonder around.

Windows from War Memorial, so pretty

After a few hours of walking around the War Memorial, B started complaining she was tired and wanted to go back home so we started making our way out of the building and made our way home.

When we got home I think we played a few X-Box games and started also watched some Australian Open. Then it was about 6:30 and B started making dinner for us which was very tasty. Then later at about 9-ish we went on a tour of ANU cause S wanted to, so here’s a picture of the pretty park at night, lol.

Anyway, we then made our way back to the room and ended up finishing the rest of the cider we bought the day before and watched a Breaking Dawn and Mean Girls before heading off to sleep to leave Canberra the next morning.
