A little unexpected trip to Melbourne – which was so much fun!
I had a job interview with one days notice, so I booked a flight straight away and luckily it was on my two days off of work! So, I headed straight for Melbourne!
On my first day, I decided to walk all the way up to Queen Victoria Markets and get some food there as I was starving since the plane! I then strolled around the streets of Melbourne looking for some cool coffee shops and stores – I even came across H&M at GPO!
I did so much stuff in one day, I ended up going to ACMI (Australia Centre of Moving Image) which was free and a lot of fun to see! It is about technology, how film, games and television became! They had a lot of interactive stuff too, for people that are more hands on too!
After ACMI, I visited Sealife Melbourne as I have a Merlin Unlimited Pass in Sydney which lets me visit any of them in Australia. So I went here for a browse as it was chilly outside! It was a lot of fun and I had a lovely surprise when I saw that they had some adorable penguins!
The next day, I went to my job interview (got the job!) and came back for a stroll around the city again. Turns out, one of my friends from the hostel was in Melbourne for a few weeks – so she decided to show me around and to take me to some cool places like Manchester Press which is a really cool, out of sight cafe/restaurant (amazing bagels!).
After Issy showing me all of the cool graffiti and coffee shops, I sadly had to go to the airport to fly back to Sydney – although I loved Melbourne, I still miss my little Sydney hostel family! But all in all, productive last minute trip, got a job and a great experience there!
