Yarra River in Melbourne Australia

While Melbourne is a wonderfully livable city, it isn’t a place with many sights or tourist attractions worth boasting about. You come here to eat, drink, and soak up the culture.

I realize that throwing my two cents into the oft-heated and never-settled Sydney vs Melbourne debate is probably a fool’s errand, but what the hell – I’m doing it.

I’ve lived in both cities and thoroughly enjoyed my time in each of them.

Filed under Surprising/Shocking/Unlikely/Absurd Things That Exist in Melbourne (of which there are MANY, god bless this city): a hands-on street art class!

I had no idea this was a thing until App Guy gifted me with a voucher for Christmas.

This month was full of so much good stuff that it left me questioning my move to Sydney this weekend. Melbourne is a damn fine city, and to be honest I’m not sure I’m ready to give up the plentiful coffee shops, bike routes, and yoga studios that have made my day-to-day life here so enjoyable.

So hey, 2016 is off to a good start! Summer in Melbourne has been pleasantly lacking in rain, though the widely varying day-to-day temperature is mildly annoying. I worked a lot of freelance hours in January and beat my monthly income record, watched a lot of tv, and somehow managed to fit in a couple of city escapes for more scenic and beachy pastures.


I’m a girl on a mission this month aspiring to conquer as many items on my Melbourne To-Do List as I can before I relocate to Sydney in March.

I don’t know why it took me 5 months to get myself to the highest vantage point in the Southern Hemisphere (me and exceptional viewpoints are like a month to a flame), but on a recent summer blue sky day I needed a break from work and without much deliberation, hopped on my bike and rode into the city.
