For me, Melbourne is a city that you fall in love with at second glance 😍 As I have already emphasized in my Sydney blog, in our opinion Sydney is hard to beat 😉 but Melbourne should not be underestimated at all.
Sven and I are seldom as united as we are when it comes to our opinion about this city. We fell so much in love with Sydney that we couldn’t get the idea of emigrating out of our heads for days 😍 This mix of world metropolis and incredibly relaxed Australians is simply awesome. After only half a day, we noticed that Sydney was simply different from everything we had seen before 😍
The flight over the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef is probably one of the most beautiful experiences on our travels. Although I have to admit that we felt a bit queasy in this little propeller plane 😅
At first we weren’t sure whether we should take the trip to Fraser Island, it wasn’t really on our route. However, you don’t have the opportunity to explore the largest sand island in the world every day 😉
We were torn … Gold Coast or Byron Bay? Unfortunately, we didn’t have the time for either. The decision finally fell on Byron Bay, as this place seemed much more chilled to us than the Gold Coast, which is paved with skyscrapers. We shouldn’t regret it 😊
When I was asked earlier if we had already been to Australia, I always answered with full conviction: We are saving this trip for our retirement. Well, actually I should have known better back then …
When Sven and I were once again faced with the big question of where the next big trip should go, this time we were, for once, completely at odds. I wanted to go to South Africa, he would rather go to the Caribbean. Sven then made a joke about why we wouldn’t actually fly to Australia. Everyone who knows me knows that I don’t take such a statement as a joke. Shortly afterwards, I was already checking flights and scouring the internet for the highlights of Australia.
