When you travel you always wake up so early; my fight against jet lag is officially ON. It is incredible to think that I am on the other side of the world but I can still feel so close to my beloved ones thanks to technology. Yesterday I bought a local rechargeable SIM card and now I am connected all the time.

But let鈥檚 go back to Melbourne. Today I have been exploring Fitzroy.

Here the city has a different feel, maybe because I am far from the skyscrapers of downtown as I explore the most creative and artistic area of Melbourne: Fitzroy. This area reminds me of a聽middle-class district featuring the same vibe of Christiania, Copenhagen. Young tattooed guys hang out with alternative artists who exhibit in聽independent art galleries and shop聽vintage clothes.

You are immersed in a mix of visual styles combining a blend of flavors that remind me of India. Here groups of young聽act聽like revolutionaries among praying mantis and skulls painted of walls. Its alternative character makes Fitzroy one of the most expensive district of the city.

Walk around this area, and indulge yourself with some vintage shopping. It is a聽city in the city; here you breath a completely different vibe made of design and urban graffiti. What to see? Nothing and everything: shops, restaurants, and cafes. Absorb the聽bohemian聽vibe of this district as you walk on聽Brunswick Street.

Just a couple of tips: Naked in the Sky offers only snacks and cold dishes; however, its view overlooking the whole city is just priceless.聽I had lunch at聽HOOKED HEALTHY SEAFOOD, a lovely spot if you feel like聽eating delicious and聽healthy seafood. For only 10/12 AUD you can have a very yummy lunch. My choice? Squid and potatoes,聽their specialty.

Stay tuned
