So we moved to our new apartment last monday! It is a studio in Brunswick, north of Melbourne, 10 min from the city in tram, right by the zoo. We really got lucky for that one because in Melbourne is a challenge even a competition when it comes to rental search. Especially if you are not from here, with no australian references... anyway we found the ad on gumtree (an australian version of craigslist). The previous couple was from Estonia going to England for a year while their residency was processing in Australia. They moved out on the 22nd, the same day we were moving out from our old apartment in Port Melbourne. Man, in 4 months, we have been moving quite a lot already! But this time we are signing a lease for 6 months. What a relief!
The night before moving we still did not know how we were going to move our bed and bags because we did not have any kind of transportation... so we agreed to give up the bed and buy the one from the estonian couple. And we took a cab to move our bags. It ended up not being so bad, nor expensive. 30 dollars for the cab drive.The only little problem is that we did not get electricity til the 2nd day but thats alright because we had candles. But there seems to be a few good cafes, restaurants, and bars, as well as thrift store, a savers (Ryan loves them!), cheap groceries stores, a library, a park... It is exciting.
