The ultimate staycation - lockdown edition
Now is probably a good time to suggest a staycation for Melbourne mofos (and winter is coming-style hibernation mofos)! I mean, even temporarily? Especially when you can enjoy the best thing (a.k.a. wine) the whole world has to offer from the comfort of your couch (or your bed – you do you).
To get a fully immersive experience, we’ll even let you know the temperature to set the AC to and a winning local movie you can throw on in the background, so it’s like you’re really there! Fun!
So put your tray table up, strap yourself in as we do a quick 360 around the world, without even leaving the house.
The land of the tango, soccer, Eva Perón and some of the best reds on the planet.
