melbourne diary.

December 19, 2011







Photos from my trip to Melbourne. I got a little too snap happy with the scenery, lots more after the jump...











































Melbourne reminded me a lot of Auckland actually, albeit on a much grander and older scale. More impressive architecture, more diversity in terms of food and shopping that's for sure, but one thing that caught me out was that the climate is exactly the same as ours. The 'four seasons in one day' is apparently not just an Auckland phenomena. I was shivering in my thin layers the whole time. Even though I managed to circumnavigate the CBD area and visit all the main streets of interest (Bourke St mall, Collins St, Chapel St etc.) I feel like I've barely scratched the surface. Am determined to go back next year and explore every lane and corner I've missed!

Oh how I love your photo diaries... really beautiful! And haha I completely know what you're talking about; once I'm visiting a new or interesting place I start taking photos approximately twice per second. It's frustrating because I have to sift through all of them once I get home. But it does recreate the atmosphere, so I guess it's a good thing.

Love, Lisa

Absolutely loving these images! My girlfriend is just moving to Melbourne from Canbera (sp?) in a couple weeks and she said that her visit there to apartment hunt was unreal, these images definitely prove what a beautiful place it is like she said! Loving that look with the shorts and cropped metallic swater, beautiful as always :)

I've been lucky enough to visit Melbourne twice, but there was no Zara or Topshop back then! My dad actually lived there for a while, and I'm so lucky to have had the chance to travel there. Can't wait to return someday and shop up a storm! I miss the Yarra River and the street musicians!

That shot you took inside the church is gorgeous, I can only image how giant that place must be in person. Also, my fave thing about traveling is trying new restaurants. Bet there were tons of delish places to eat there!

Glad to see you enjoyed it! The Christmas trams are too cute. Did you check out any of the places I recommended? Also are there any spots on Auckland you recommend I should visit?
