31st July 2012, the day we were moving away from Melbourne, Australia. We spent just over 11 months in this spectacular city, and if you ever get the chance we’d both highly recommend visiting, even if only for a short period of time. Unlike most other cities in Australia (which are either too chilled out or too busy [i.e. Perth, where nothing really gets done, or Sydney, which is just a city full of hustling and non-stop running around), Melbourne has a brilliant combination of both. Clean sandy beaches, brilliant summers, chilly winters, endless work opportunities and great schools (apparently!). You’ll quickly see why Melbourne has been one of the top ranked “Most Liveable Cities” in recent years. We’ve blogged a fair bit about our time in Australia and have posted plenty of photos – so check it all out here and here.
