Melbourne always looks really cool in photos. Some great buildings - both old and new.

Thats is why I chose Melbourne, a fantastic mix of old and new, it is also the most European-like city in Australia - I am a Europhile so I get great weather with a touch of Europe

Can't believe it's been that long. I'll keep an eye out for it.

I see that Air Canada has added more flights to Melbourne and if you should ever make it to our shores, I will gladly show the local hot spots that only residents know about

Jane, I would not call it evil nature - they are naughty and fearless when they
defend their nest or want to steal something from human table.
Evil nature is something that I until now never experienced from animals,
only from "human" beings...

Gold is a big thing in Melbourne due to the fact that the city served as the gateway to some of the biggest gold rushes in history. The glass at the top of the tower is also covered in real gold
