Melbourne 2016

Wednesday, 24 August 2016

On the first week of July, I went on a long weekend trip with my sister and cousin to Melbourne, the world's most liveable city. We were only there for a short 3 days and 2 nights so we limited ourselves to the heart of the CBD. (Though, we had plenty of time left over to explore the streets of the city by the end of it.) The last time I went to Melbourne was back in 2010 when I went with uni. We flew with with Jetstar and stayed at Quality Hotel Batman's Hill on Collins.

Travelling anywhere, near or far is an adventure in itself, but this Melbourne trip was a nice little break from reality and a chance to explore our "rival city". I really liked how organised they were with their light rail (hopefully ours will be just as good), and how their wide (CBD) streets reminded me of Hong Kong—i.e., it felt bustling. I also loved their coffee culture and how serious everyone is about their coffee. I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but I absolutely love the smell of it. (I cannot tell you how many cups we drank during those 3 days!) As you can see from the photos, we definitely had our fair share of the food there by eating our way through the city. A shout out to the Grain Store and the American Doughnut Kitchen at the Queen Victoria Market!
