Melbourne is a big city that has history, art, shopping, food, architecture, culture, coffee and chocolate.

Wow! I wasn’t sure what to expect from Canberra because you don’t hear much about it other than the fact that it is the capital of Australia, but it was an absolute delight. The people were so very friendly and helpful, even if it was because, like I was told, I have an accent. Canberra [...]
