My Melbourne

Foreword
Since arriving in Melbourne in the Summer of 2007, I’ve tried to take in as much of the city as possible. Melbourne much like many of the other world’s modern cities has something for everyone. Though for the visitor/traveller, one may not have the luxury of misses. Every place in a short trip here has to be a hit. So for this, I’ve constructed My Melbourne Page. It profiles some of my favourite places and experiences. I hope it helps… .
