This week I was in Melbourne to check out the most amazing addresses for you. If you love Berlin and East-London then you will love Melbourne too. It’s a bit raw, you’ll see street art everywhere, the coffee scene is huge and it’s more creative, hipster than for example Sydney (which you can compare to cities such as Cape Town, Los Angeles and Barcelona because of the relaxed beach vibe). I’m gonna share my favorite addresses with you soon, but if you’re going to Melbourne soon I would recommend you to not miss Fitzroy/Collingwood, the city center (CBD) and the South of Melbourne. I’ve stayed at two amazing hotels: this luxurious hotel in South Melbourne (very close to the F1 circuit) and this creative apartment in Fitzroy. Both fantastic options!


For now: let’s see Melbourne through my eyes and let’s continue the journey to Indonesia tomorrow!
