A Preview of my First visit to Melbourne

When thinking of Melbourne, several things come to mind instantly. Cafes, laneways, restaurants, sports, shopping, weather... I had the pleasure of visiting this dynamic city earlier this year and I already can't wait to go back. There's plenty to see and do in Melbourne!

My one week visit to Melbourne in August was primarily for the AFL International Cup (IC). I was lucky enough to squeeze in some sight-seeing and food adventures in between footy games thanks to a couple special Melbournians (wink wink). I loved exploring the city and having the chance to reconnect with friends from back home who traveled to compete for Canada in the IC.

Melbourne weather can often showcase four seasons in one day, regardless of the time of year. For this one week in Melbourne, however, spring seemed to prevail. Good on ya, Melbourne!

Here's a preview of my time in Melbourne.
