Snapshots of Melbourne (Part 1)

Hello from Melbourne!

It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly 5 years I last left this city that I called home for three of the most formative years in my life.

It feels great to be back. Melbourne hasn’t changed as much as I feared that it would; Swanston St. has been fully pedestrianised, creating a very vibrant street scene in central Melbourne. New restaurants have popped up across town, and the food truck craze has arrived here too! No longer is there the little Es Teler on Cardigan St. that I used to go to often during the uni days; a shame indeed, I still remember how great their spicy kuayteow goreng was!

Here are some snapshots of Melbourne that I took over the past two days.

The tram, the CBD skyline and the solid blue skies. Quintessentially Melbourne.

Alright, that’s it for now. Looking forward to a weekend of reconnecting with some dear friends. Feels good to be back in Melbourne, albeit for a few days only.

Speak soon,

FH.
