We love Melbourne but we also love living out of town, which is why we don't stay here all the time. Judith is a full-time artist so she's in her studio a lot. Jim's background is in publishing which he now combines with other pursuits in the arts so he splits his time between both locations. Between us we can give you tips on a range of places to visit while in Melbourne, especially if you are interested in galleries, bookshops, non-mainstream performances or simply walking about with your eyes open.
When we travel we like to get to know the places where people actually live. After a day seeing the sights, we'd rather be somewhere more personal than a hotel room but still be close enough to our favourite spots.
We're not big on having lots of stuff but what we do have is what we like. That's why there's art on the walls, an eclectic mix of books on the shelf, a tv that knows its place, organic fruit on the table and fair trade coffee in the kitchen.
