At the end of the month, my family and I will be leaving Melbourne and moving back to Sydney.

Our stint down here was always a temporary one and although I am thrilled to be moving back home, I will miss Melbourne – a lot.

Which got me thinking.

What makes a place? I think I have a small amount of experience when answering this.

When I was 22, I packed my bag and moved to London and it turned out to be a life changing experience. I met Jason and the rest is history.

But apart from that, when I remember London, I think of the amazing friendships I made – friends who will always hold a special place in my heart.

Life long friends.

It has been like that for me here.

Melbourne has SO much going for it. The coffee, the day trips, the culture and the restaurants to name a few but for me, the “experience” has been about the people.

I have met some wonderful folk, here in Melbourne.

Generous and open…

…but in Melbourne I found one of “those” friends.

You know the one? They don’t come around often.

The one you can talk to five times a day and still have something to chat about.
The one who you show your really bad side to and they still love you.
The friend you will always have, no matter where your life takes you.
The mate that just “gets” you.

Thank you Melbourne, for giving me such a friend.

Love ya x
