THE FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF MELBOURNE

We arrived in Australia! Melbourne is the first city that we visited and we decided to stay a little longer than just a few days. This city is so alive, there's so much to see and to do so we will take our time to discover it all. We found a little apartment in Fitzroy (our favorite neighborhood so far) and now we're enjoying the sunny christmas days in our lovely little neighborhood (we have a open air swimming pool next door!).

I liked this city from the moment we arrived here. It has a real relaxed atmosphere and some arty vibes. The streets are filled with nice little shops, bars and restaurants (sometimes on rooftops) and there's a beach AND a China town, do I need to say more? There's graffiti and street art everywhere, I just don't know where to look first.

One of my friends from Leuven (Anna-belle) is also traveling in Australia at the moment and we were meeting here a few days ago. We visited the evening market and had some drinks together. The same day I bumped into a classmate (Michelle) from high school. She is living in Sydney and was visiting Melbourne this week with her parents. How come this world is so small?! But okay, it's nice to see some familiar faces.
