One week in Melbourne
16.03.2016 - 22.03.2016
MELBOURNE - SPORTS CAPITAL OF THE WORLD 2016 - MOST LIVEABLE CITY IN THE WORLD
As I live in Brisbane, Queensland, so Melbourne is south of the border and the inhabitants are known as Mexicans.
I have been many times to Melbourne, but on this occasion I had a lot of time to take in the sights and have a really good look around the city.
It was in March, Autumn which was a very pleasant time to visit Melbourne, especially as I was doing a lot of walking.
Melbourne is a city that I really enjoy mainly because of the huge variety of things to see and do, there really is something for everyone. Each time I return I find more, and I know after this last visit that I want to return again and see the new sights I found but didn't have time to see!
I guess you could say I LOVE MELBOURNE!
