I ♥ Melbourne, and so do lots of other people by the looks of things

Is it just me, or has Melbourne grown up and found it's (beautifully shod) feet? Everywhere I go, people are telling me how great Melbourne is, how much they want to move here, and declaring that this here is the creative hub of modern, urban Australia.

Preaching to the choir there.

Every week it seems there's a new rag on the streets extolling the virtues of Melbourne living, from the endless cafés to the pop-up shops to the burgeoning cycle culture. And to complement this new-found Melbourne-crush are a host of goods and services that celebrate the lovely, quirky and iconic things about my home town.

The trams:

The coffee obsession:

The skipping girl:

The architecture:

The slightly grungy, vintage style:

Hook turns:

The Nylex sign:

The railway stations:

Even the good old Melways:

I'm feeling the Melbourne-love right now. It's in the air like the pollen, dusting you gently every time you step out of the house.

Sigh, I LOVE Melbourne. I'd even go so far as to say I <3 Melbourne. I'd even buy a shirt that says it. I miss Melbourne a lot - not just my friends, but the city itself. And the coffee - I'm yet to find a coffee that compares to what I had down there. Sigh.

I'm looking forward to my first visit back, hopefully in a couple of weeks.

Melbourne misses you too, anna!! Come back down soon. I'm sure there's lots to love about QLD as well (is that where you are now?)


Anna said...

Yep, in QLD now. There are things to love about it, like the warmth. I'm sure that, as I'm here longer and get settled down, I'll find more :) Even so, visiting Melbourne in a week, can hardly wait!
