Melbourne, Australia, 2014



On the grand scheme of things, and hindsight, choosing Melbourne over Sydney as my next stop was part random choice, part a plan... that didn't pan out (I had to meet someone in Sydney in a few weeks, so it made sense to visit Melbourne first). The best thing is that what I discovered was a place where I would love to live in, despite their strange bar hours, but I guess that's mediterranian me and our love of keeping late hours, constant wind (but that's a constant in the whole of Australia) and crazy heat. 

When I had to take the plane there I made the bold decision of putting on my jeans, and boy was I happy when I landed… after months of incredible heat, the 14 degrees completely froze me up. I even had to go on a winter sale and buy a jumper. That is, for a few days, then we got the most amazing heat wave I've ever experienced. If you are a tennis fan you might have noticed a few complains about the heat over the Australia Open, because, oh my, yes, we went to the 45. It was a good day when the blackboard of the hostel announced the we were only at 41. 

I loved it, though, I loved it because Melbourne has lovely all kinds of asian food, amazing coffee, more amazing people and because I also made a friend, that in a week I'll be seeing again, and that made it possible and easy for me to do something that I've always wanted to do…
