Melbourne Diary: CBD walk


CBD Walk

I remember, how I woke up one day in Thailand and took the decision to move to Melbourne. I remember, that I had a dream about living in this amazing city, being happy and feeling at home…I remember how, after that dream, I knew for a fact that I was going to come and settle down in Melbourne. And here I am, three weeks after my arrival here, and I do not regret a single moment of it. I love Melbourne! I love this city for its streets art, relaxed and chilled atmosphere, hipster vibe, modern cafes, beautiful parks and positive energy. I love this city for giving me already (I repeat, it has been only 3 weeks since I got here) home, work and amazing friends. I am so happy to be here!

I have decided to do an ‘explore Melbourne’ day at least once a week, when I grab my camera, put on my most comfortable shoes and go discovering new places and new spots. Here is the first part of my ‘explore Melbourne’ diary: the CBD walk suggested by my dear university friend Sara. By the way, CBD stands for Central Business District, the heart of Melbourne.

The walk:

>> Start at Flinders street and Degraves lane. Walk down Degraves and turn right onto Flinders lane. Have coffee at Journal Cafe (which is next to the Melbourne city library).
>> Then cross at the pedestrian crossing at the Mallorca building and walk down that lane (with all the cafés).
>> Cross Collins street and turn left. Go into the Block arcade. Turn right at Haighes chocolates and go down Block place.
>> Cross the street and go into the Royal arcade. Cross Bourke street and turn left. Go up Bourke street.
>> At the Mc Donalds, turn right into Hardware lane. Walk all the way to Little Lonsdale.
>> Turn right and go to the 1000 £ bend for coffee and an interesting space. It’s an amazing cafe with a relaxed vibe, where you can sit with your laptop and enjoy free wifi and nice music.

Enjoy and come visit Melbourne!

    Wow! It is my favourite walk, and you have captured it so beautifully! You really have an eye for seeing the essence of a place through a lens. Amazing! :)
