Australi-yeah! The Journey Begins...07:02:00
So the last 24 days have been quite an adventure already. Actually, the whole of 2016 has been pretty bananas and I am definitely enjoying every second of it. Up until now I was convinced that 2014 has been the best year of my life but 2016 definitely pushed it off the throne - by far.
*don't ever try petting wild kangaroos, they can be mean little creatures and kick the s#!t out of you.
If you ever make it to Australia, make sure to treat yourself and swing by Doughnut Time. They have the most delicious and most sinful doughnuts (vegan options available!) of all time. One is about 6$ so definitely not super cheap but you won't regret it, I promise! As I said, it's a treat.
Even though it's winter now most days can be survived only wearing long sleeves without freezing your butt off completely. Other days are just cold and gross. Melbournian weather is pretty temperamental in general but I am more or less used to it from Europe. Germany and Sweden are not in particular famous for their good weather either unfortunately.
Fitzroy is probably my favourite place in Melbourne - being its smallest,most densely populated and first Melbournian suburban area ever - almost half of Fitzroy's population was born overseas which makes it one of Melbournes most diverse areas as well. Art, cafes and a bunch of vintage stores offer you everything the modern day hipster needs. If you like Berlin, Stockholm, Copenhagen or any other hip city you will definitely feel at home in super cool Fitzroy.
It's basically lots of food stalls from all over the place, live music and other kinds of performances, clothing, candles, jewelry and other bits and pieces. If you happen to be in Melbourne between 1/6 and 31/8 you should definitely swing by on a Wednesday between 5pm and 10pm. Don't forget to bring some cash and lots of appetite. I'm definitely going back soon to enjoy a bread bowl - that's for sure.
Anyways, borrowing Arnold Schwarzenegger's words: I'll be back. And I mean soon... not like "in a month"-kinda soon. I promise.
