I've lived in Melbourne, Australia all my life and really love it. I've travelled in Asia, Europe and America. My favourite would be hard to choose! New York? Rome? I still have dreams I'm there! We used airbnb often and really enjoyed the freedom and relaxation.
I'm an artist and I teach adults painting at the nearby Abbotsford Convent. You'll want to go there! Galleries, artists studios and cafes near the river and in beautiful gardens! Try a class for fun - I can offer a discount! Being creative in all ways is a great way to live!
