I try and stay indoors with full air-conditioning these days. Oh Mother Earth, what has happened to you? Btw, I am using the Panasonic Envio at home which is earth friendly :)
Anyway, Melbourne is one of my favorite cities in the Land Down Under. I absolutely love the weather. Sydney is too busy for me and.... hot! eventhough the last time I was there it was the end of summer.
We rented a Camry especially for our trip to the 12 Apostles. You don't need a car otherwise, the tram is convenient if we plan to go a lil out from the city. Everything else was in walking distance from where we stayed. Our apartment was in Lil Lonsdale, right in the CBD (Central Business District). Shopping, night life, and everything else is there. But of course, besides the city, you need to discover other places too, and Chapel St. and Vic Market is not something to be missed :)
When I was there, the Comedy Fest was on. I took the oportunity to check out one of the night comedy shows to see some talents performed. The talents were from all over the world. Bo Burnham from the US of A really impressed me!
