Living in Melbourne was so much fun because it was my first time living in the suburbs since moving out of my parents' as a 17-year-old. It was the first time living in a house, with a huge properly equipped kitchen and a huge garden with a vege patch and a barbie and even a hammock.
Living in the suburbs had its downsides, too. I used to catch the taxis to/from airports all the time. It was too hard to take the airport shuttle then change to a tram, especially since I used to take the really early/late flights. For me, taxis are a night out thing, or a big city thing. I used to take taxis all the time in Seoul too. But Melbourne is the only city where I actually had a taxi app downloaded on my phone.
I miss Melbourne more than I thought I would. There's always a sense of attachment to any place you've been long enough, but I feel I'd left Melbourne without getting to know it fully, so the novelty of being a Melbournite never got the chance to wear off. Melbourne is such a cool city. I can't wait to go back, soon.
