Melbourne's the World's "Most Livable City" - Again

Wednesday, August 31, 2011 by Jafo | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

We must be good at bribing the Judges....

Pity we didn't Bribe the World Cup selectors instead....

 

Canada has been hogging the limelight for a few years....but recent riots.....

 

 

Weird thing is....we're itching to get back to/see more of NY ...and they only came in 50-somethingth....

As Melbourne citizens keep telling us ...

Sydney will be upset ... they are all strange up there anyway, can't even kick a ball.

only thing wrong with Melbourne is it doesn't have Sydney Harbour... or the Bridge... or the Opera House... 

 

I could go on....

Ah, but it does have a Jafo.... and when the judges realise this, Melbourne will be brought down a peg or three to compensate. 

I mean, who else gets around in a blue helmet that reminds you of YMCA and that Village People bloke?

I would have thought Detroit owned that title. The place is a ghost town. Last time I went there I was expecting to see a sign saying 'last one out, turn the lights off'.

 Yep, they finally got organized crime out of Chicago (and moved it to Washington, DC.)

the list ... 

1. Melbourne, Australia
2. Vienna, Austria
3. Vancouver, Canada
4. Toronto, Canada
5. Calgary, Canada
6. Sydney, Australia
7. Helsinki, Finland
8-- Perth, Australia
8-- Adelaide, Australia
10. Auckland, New Zealand

 Looks like Australia and Canada have the most livable cities.

Ok, so you made me check out and look at pictures of Melbourne and agree it was beautiful.

Not one picture was bad as Jafo wasn't in any of them, thank goodness.

that's really becoming a problem too... especially when you read that it's more expensive to live here than in New York... real estatewise as well...  

I've always been fortunate enough to live on the harbourfront, close to the city, pretty and cooler... if I had to live out west in the heat and the traffic....I would prefer to live in Melbourne.... even though it's toooo cold..... love the Melbourne summer heat.... very dry compared to Sydney's more humid summers.  Trafficwise... Melbourne is far better planned and easier to navigate... Sydney grew like Topsy...all over the place like Brown's cows...

Melbourne does have alot going for it... the Dandenongs is one of my favourite places.... and the antique shops are wayyyy better than Sydney's.... and the architecture leaves Sydney well behind.... but.. love the Harbour....nothing better than being out there on a warm sunny day.... it's beautiful...

So many pretty daytrips within and hour to an hour and a half outside Melbourne... in Sydney... you contemplate the traffice getting out... and usually give it a miss...
