Girl in Melbourne

Melbourne is a city that swaddles you and keeps you warm, as long as you are appropriately dressed.  It’s the kind of destination you always park a scarf when visiting (especially in Autumn) because you never know how bitterly cold it might be.  This is why Melbourne feels a lot like home, because New Zealand is the same.  And because my sister lives in Melbourne, so a part of home is always there to welcome me.

I never really do much when I am there, only the things that you imagine people do in this town.  Shop, go to cafes, eat, wander through parks, walk up four flights of steps in search of a bookstore, go to museums and galleries.  But it is an easy to navigate city, so simple to get around.  Perfect for exploring and for solitary wandering days punctuated by meals with friends.
