I cannot get enough of this place. The quaint buildings, the rambling trams, the new skyscrapers and the lovely people…Old meets new in a seamles way at Melbourne..This is a city with a soul..While Tasmania remains my first love…I am in love with Melbourne 🙂
Today when we were trying to find our way to the Melbourne Museum, a gentleman asked us if we knew which tram to catch..Then he, not only guided us to the right tram, he also pointed out all the key monuments on the way and gave us suggestions the best way to get around. He asked us to get off at the right stop and even asked the driver to guide us to the further route.
While we were coming back, a gentleman actually gave us a map and told us where to go and what to do…The people here smile a lot, are super friendly and have a wonderfully sweet 🙂 There are ao many street artists doing amazing stuff – singing, dancing, doing stunts..Its such a culturally rich place
The Melbourne Museum in superb..From dinosaurs to the various rocks available on Earth, to flora and fauna of Australia and the world to the Aboriginal people’s culture…its a sight..
There is a special Children’s area as well as a there was a special exhibition on microbes where we learnt about anti venom and stuff…. It was such a wonderful learning and so much fun!
