TRUE OR FALSE?

April 10, 2011

When I visited Australia ten years ago I was definitely a Sydney fan. I lived in Bondi Beach, celebrated New Year’s Eve in some hot club near the harbour and loved the skyscrapers (yes, I’m a skyscraper girl otherwise I would be living in Amsterdam right now). Melbourne was more like Amsterdam I thought: with all the cozy terraces in St Kilda. But while I’m still making wishlists for both cities for my next trip Melbourne is quickly becoming full of cool hotspots. Hmm… what do you think? Which city in Australia is better?
