Rooftop bars in Melbourne aren’t unique to this city, but they are infamous never-the-less. Kind of like New York’s pizza or Greece’s islands. They’re just better here.
In February I took a little trip along the Great Ocean Road with my mum as a late birthday present. When booking accommodation, I stumbled upon this beautiful bed & breakfast and whilst most hotels impress you with the photos and leave you disappointed on arrival, this place was quite the opposite. The photo’s did not do it justice.
The Labor Day long weekend rolled around and I thought of no better way to see out the Australian summer months then to head to some of the nicest coastlines Oz has to offer. The Mornington Peninsula surrounds the eastern side of Port Phillip Bay and is a favorite holiday spot for many Melbournians for a reason.
Having traveled to so many other cities around the world, I seem to forget to truly appreciate my home city. So I decided to take a day off to explore Melbourne as I would in any other city; as a tourist. Armed with my iPhone 6 and a travelers attitude in mind, I took to the streets and grew to love Melbourne even more than I already did.
Melbourne (pronounced Mel-bin) is my home city and is still one of my favorite cities in the world. It’s alternative feel, abundance of parks and public art and diverse culture makes it extremely unique. Not only has it been voted the most livable city in the world for many years in a row, but it was just voted the friendliest city in the world as well. It’s also known as the sporting capital of the world. And who better to give you some tips for visiting the fashion and sporting capital of Australia than a local, right?
