There are no more than two weeks left of the winter season. Should I say: “Lets enjoy these few days of winter, going out in our jumpers, drinking mulled wine, and looking for heaters around Melbourne”? We sure will.

One thing I can tell you for sure: Melbourne has beautiful and outstanding views in every season. And even though I’ve been living here for one year and a half, I often catch myself delighted with this:
