A little bit about Melbourne that I know...

Melbourne travelogue picture
I flew from Sydney over the sky of Canberra to Melbourne, very anxious to meet this city. I can't remember where it was I took the picture from the plane, I really love this view.

I have to say Melbourne is a great combination of the old and new. It is very different from Sydney. Strange weather though. It was summer but everyone is wearing winter coat.

Favourite spots:

Walking along Yarra river
Walking in the city itself to feel the atmosphere of the streets
The Great Ocean road, especially the Twelve Apostles
The Phillip Island



What's really great:

The short trip was made great by many things. The trips to the Great Ocean road and Phillip Island were very memorable. Our driver showed us how to make billy tea the very cool way!! we had some biscuits with Aussie's favourite vegemite (ermm.. taste is weird but nice to try). The day to the Great ocean road was the day with the strongest wind I have ever been through in Australia. I couldn't stand still to take a good picture of the 12 Apostles. Seeing the little penguins returning to their home was amazing too!

Besides that, jumping on and off the trams, cold weather when it's summer, vietnamese food in Mekong restaurant.


Sights:

There are restaurants everywhere.
Chinatown, in the malls... I loved the wraps and also the Vietnamese restaurant, Mekong in the city the most.
