My favourite Melbourne


Richmond, Victoria

1. Walking in Richmond

Richmond is by far my favourite suburb in Melbourne. I absolutely love everything about it: streets with cute Victorian style houses, amazing cafes with beautiful interior design and yummy food, Victoria street with many Asian restaurants  for different budgets, numerous Asian grocery stores and markets where you can get fresh veggies and fruits for a reasonable price. Richmond is very close to the city, you can reach the CBD by foot in 30 mins. Read More →

Melbourne Diary: in love with houses


Melbourne architecture

I love Melbourne! I love this city for its cute houses in Victorian style, combined with modern designed buildings. I love Melbourne for the easiness to get around, the calm atmosphere, where you do not feel to be in a big city. I love Melbourne for its incredible cafes, where each place deserves to be at the top of the ‘best interior designed cafes’ list. I love Melbourne for its amazing food culture and meal presentation and always an option for healthy diets (vegan, gluten free, soya/almond milk, etc.). Read More →

Australia: Grampians National Park



Grampians national park is a famous destination for exploring nature around Melbourne. In the beginning of January, me, my mom and two of my friends rented a car (check my other blog post for car rental details) and drove off for a two-day adventure to Grampians. I was the only driver, apart from the 3 hours when a friend of mine took over the wheel. I must say, it is quite easy to drive in Australia! Read More →

Australia: Phillip Island wonder



I believe photos tell much more than words… Here are my photo impression from one day on the Philip Island. Truly amazing and beautiful place, and so peaceful. It is not touristically overcrowded and one can enjoy quiet beach and relaxing sound of the ocean. It is just 1,5 hour drive from Melbourne but it feels like a different planet. Am I crazy to want to go back there again?! Read More →

This unknown ‘weird’ Australia 



It has already been 5 months since I came to Australia, and I absolutely love it here. Australia is different and far away; thus, some of us know pretty much nothing about this side of the world. I must admit, I was one of those people before I arrived to Australia. Here are my 17 observation about the country of Kangaroos. Read More →

Great Ocean Road Adventure


Great ocean road

Great ocean road is one of the most touristic known attractions around Melbourne. And I totally understand the reason why! It is definitely the highlight of my Australian adventure so far when talking about nature! I absolutely loved it! I screamed so loud and jumped from happiness every time I stood on the top of a cliff and looked down at the powerful ocean. Me and my two friends rented a car and went for two days to explore that beautiful part of Australia! And we all absolutely loved it! Here are few facts and tips about our trip!

Melbourne Diary: Fitzroy walk



Fitzroy, Fitzroy…I love Fitzroy so much! Fitzroy is a suburb in Melbourne and a very alternative one…It is said to be one of the hipster neighbourhoods in Australia, mecca for all cool and kooky. Brunswick street is one of the main streets in Fitzroy with lots of design stores, second hand shops, organic food shops, vegan cafes, and rustic restaurants. If you like hipster style, resale shops,  rustically designed cafes, and vintage feeling, that’s the place for you! Read More →

Escape the city: Dandenong Ranges


Dandenong Ranges_1

First time getting away from the city, my first spot outside of Melbourne – Dandenong Ranges…It’s green, it’s quiet, it’s beautiful…this is nature! I love Melbourne! I love it as it does not feel like a big city. But going back to nature is always different and relaxing. When you live in a big city, such nature-escapes are important. The other day my friends and i drove to Dandenong Ranges, and it turned out to be one amazing day!

Melbourne Diary: St. Kilda & the sunset


The other day I went with a friend of mine to St. Kilda. It is that part of Melbourne where you feel you are far away from the big, metropolitan city and are back to the beach and relaxing atmosphere. Yes, there is a beach in Melbourne! And I can only imagine how crowded it gets here in summer. Exactly that is why I loved our visit now, during winter, when it is still cold, windy and absolutely peaceful. I do not remember ever being on the beach during winter/cold period. And it is something special! I think I even like it more than when it is burning hot with lots of people. Read More →
