I love living in Melbourne and wish I was able to stay for longer. The city is so organised and clean; the fact that it also has some of the best food I’ve ever tasted rates it even higher in my book. A memorable weekend getaway from my time here was my trip to the strawberry farm, hot springs and vineyards of Mornington Peninsula. I also had the opportunity to go horse-riding in Melbourne which was a fun experience to say the least!
