Recently I made the move over east to Melbourne to experience new things and great opportunities. I have been here for nearly a month and have loved it so far, Melbourne is the type of city which you can do just about anything that may tickle your fancy, theres no excuse to be bored in a city with so many different events and places to see. For example, the friday of the first week that I was here I went to the Grand Prix that was being held at Albert park not far from where I am staying. First off, what an unbelievable experience to see the power and speed of a range of sport cars going around the track, it was one to tick off the bucket list for sure. However, not satisfied with just providing awesome entertainment on the track, the event organisers set up a half pipe and brought Tony Hawk and friends over to woo the crowd with his talents. With F-18 fighter pilot doing low passes over the crowds and as if this all wasn’t enough I accepted an invitation to go to the opening game of the AFL football season later that night. An action packed day for sure!
If you are thinking of travelling to Melbourne then don’t hesitate, what an amazing city full of fun things to get involved in. Just riding through the city on my bike over the weekends you find yourself in the middle of street markets and street performances charged with an infectious vibe that attaches itself to you, and you return home feeling just a little bit more cultured than when you left.
Exciting to think that there is still so much to see!
