Our first stop in Australia during our around the world trip was Melbourne. I remember this city fondly as it reminded me of Europe (after all that time in Asia) and it was quite small and easy to navigate. I am not going to lie, there was plenty of beer consumed during our week here…
Mostly at Young & Jackson, a pub just next door to our hostel.
We went walking around the Victoria Harbor and Ethiad Stadium.
And of course countless cafés all over CBD!
We also took a stroll through The Royal Botanical Gardens. It is always the perfect thing to do on a sunny day.
We could not leave Melbourne without a visit to the Pancake Parlour, given that Claes is a huge fan of anything pancake.
We went up the Eureka 88 sky deck which is the tallest public viewpoint on the southern hemisphere. Claes would not go outside on the balcony as it was pretty windy 😛
And of course we made some friends 🙂 All in all Melbourne was a perfect combination of Europe and Australia melted into one gorgeous city with heaps of fun activities and things to see!
