Where I stayed
I've met some great friends over here which I am so thankful for. The sense of community of my hostel has made the time much more enjoyable. I am truly lucky to have met so many great people who have come from all different walks of life.
The culture is very similar to Australia, however it's the subtle differences and the accents that remind me that I'm in a new place. For a start, when I write a letter the dates and the month comes before the day
The morning cofee has been a sticking point for me. It's what I look forward to in my work day.. The first day I tried the office's fancy brewed coffee and vowed never to do it again! Melbourne has made me such a coffee snob. When I get home I can't wait to go to my favourite cafe and order a latte... ahhh:-) We have a coffee shop in our complex called Blenz that makes the closest coffee to back home but it's quite pricey to have every day. They do have really good bagels nearby though...
