We’ve been travelling for 5 weeks now, it seems like longer, and very few places have captivated us in the way that Melbourne has. There is a sense that we’re home, a home away from home. This city has a little bit of everything; the skyscrapers are all neatly contained together, there is plenty of greenery the botanical garden being my favourite sanctuary, there’s the quirky, the cosmopolitain, a gaggle of sports arenas to suit every taste, the beach a stones throw away, and the Yarra River running through the city, I mean what more could you want.
Before leaving on our trip, Melbourne was the one place that everyone had an abundance of recommendations for, and I can totally see why. We have also left with our list of favourite restaurants, cafes, hangouts, and places to visit, which we will also pass onto our family and friends and of course you. We left a little piece of our heart back in the city that truly captured us.
