We’ve finally moved into our shiny new apartment 🙂 We’re living just off Chapel Street in South Yarra. It’s a great location with so many bars, restaurants and shops literally on our doorstep. The apartment itself is fantastic. Stew and I are sharing a room with a kingsize bed and ensuite. We’re living with Stew’s best friend and the apartment has it’s own balcony. The building is only 6 months old and comes with a luxurious swimming pool, sauna, steam room, gym and rooftop garden with bbq area! We can’t believe our luck.
The apartment came with everything except furnishings such as bedding and kitchenware, so we popped to the nearest Kmart to stock up. This was a super stressful trip with us not being able to catch a taxi back with everything for over 2 hours!! The transport in Melbourne is shocking. If you’re not in the city centre booking or hailing a taxi is almost impossible and the train system is terrible. It’s not until you leave the UK that you really appreciate how amazing the London underground is!
Below is the view from the top of our building and further on you’ll see the rooftop garden and pool.
