We began our trip in Melbourne, the largest city in the southeastern state of Victoria. Just as any other cosmopolitan city, Melbourne has a very vibrant downtown, or Central Business District(CBD), with great public transportation. The city is self described as a “melting pot,” and the variety of cafes and coffee shops makes every block you walk down an exploration of the city’s character. Melbourne, if not all of Australia, is a very pedestrian place. There are tons of little districts scattered throughout the city that encourage you to leave your wheel based transportation for a slower, more intimate form of exploration. So it is with this knowledge of the city that I bring you to my personal explorations of this eclectic city.
