Welp, I think it’s safe to say that the more distracted I get with weekend trips, road trips, and other adventures, the worse I am about blogging and Instagramming and even reading.
I’ve been waiting a really long time to compose this post and, after FINALLY experiencing Trip #7 for myself last month, I think it’s time to unveil it!
Melbourne is a fantastic (and “liveable”) city, but there’s some equally amazing stuff worth experiencing elsewhere in Victoria.
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 Melbourne vs Sydney 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.
I’m not sure how I first heard about this free Melbourne event, but I had White Night on my calendar for months leading up to it. Here’s the official description of it:
White Night Melbourne is the city as you know it, turned on its head in a dusk ‘til dawn celebration of culture and creativity.
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.
