It’s been a little less than 2 weeks since I arrived in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve seen koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, emus, and even penguins. They look so cuddly I want to take them home.
Photos are not allowed, so I’ve googled an image for your reference.
First 2 weeks are mostly about applying for work, checking out the City, ie. downtown, Phillip Island and a zoo. I have also secured an in-house web designer contract starting in a week.
Food in Melbourne is great. Cost is higher, but there are random cheap buys. McDonald’s has 30-cent small ice cream cones (Aussies call them “soft serves”) – who could resist?
Before I came, people tell me Melbourne has the best coffee in the world. I have had about 4. That says a lot considering I have 1 about every 4 months. Mmmmm… Then again, it might be because the tourist in me tells me to try more.
Until next time,
Trip planning can be stressful. I’ve used the Lonely Planet travel guide during my year long journey and it has helped me loads. If you plan on buying one anyway, please purchase through my link below.
