Between March and July 2013, I lived and worked in Melbourne, Victoria. I loved the city but had to work bloody hard in some crappy jobs to save for some more travelling. Having said that, I really feel that having lived in Melbs rather than just visited, I can claim to know the place, its locals and even some of its secrets. Below is a selection of pictures showing not just somewhere I stopped by but somewhere I built a life for four months, sometimes struggling and sometimes thriving. For that reason Melbourne will always have a special place in my heart.

Turkish protestors outside the State Library, June 2013
Etihad Stadium, where I worked a couple of times
Finding this in the basement of Etihad Stadium got me excited and nostalgic!
