This week we did a whopping 2,5 hour ski tour starting from Westerfolds Park! I was following two pro-skiers on pavement and on gravel, and must say skiking is a good workout! My bum and inner thighs are quite sore today, but in a good way. ;) I also recommend the park area, which I'm pretty sure not too many tourist find their way there. It seems to be a little unfamiliar to Melbourneans too, because no one I've spoken to about it has been there. I promised to take them there though. ;)

|Looking very sporty, eh?

The best part of skiking is that you get to off track and into the bush and all those cracks in the pavement won't be an obstacle at all. Just skike through, you'll hardly notice them, because the wheels are big and bouncy. :) All in all, the freedom of it!
After the skiking session, I was thirsty and hungry. Luckily there's a lovely cafe, Mia mia, in the park, which also has an aboriginal art gallery. I would list their scones as a must eat in Melbourne - the best scones I've ever had in my life! No doubt I'm going back to Westerfolds Park for some more skiking, running, cycling and sconssing. ;)
