In may I made a little weekend trip to Melbourne, Victoria. I’ve heard that it’s very European so I had to check for myself what they meant by it.
Melbourne is a wonderful city and couldn’t be more different from Sydney. The weather is more European to begin with, You can have all four seasons in one day. As I was there towards the end of Autumn, in May, it was rather chilly already.
City has great friendly people, lots of cafes on every corner with the best coffee I’ve had in Australia and little streets and alleyways covered in impressing graffiti.
I get what they mean by ‘European’ when they talk about Melbourne. It’s hard to put it into words. Here’s a video that I’ve put together from my visit to Melbourne to give you some idea what it’s like.
