It only makes sense that people would want to travel to Melbourne after being named the “World’s Most Livable City” for the past two years in a row. The survey ranked 140 cities around the world and yet again Melbourne is on top of the list.

Melbourne is the capital and most populous city of Victoria with around 4 million people. According to the Tourism Victoria Corporate website, the number of visitors that stayed overnight last year in Melbourne reached 54.9 million.

Tourists from all over the world come to experience the city of Melbourne. Some stay for a day and some stay for a year. Charles Murzeau, who is 26-years old, is an architect from Paris, France. He has been traveling around the world since last October and has traveled to every continent besides Antarctica. He has decided to take a break from backpacking around the world and start a new life here in Melbourne.

Within one day of being in Melbourne, Charles found a job, opened up a bank account, and fell in love with the city.

“I don’t know if I’m just lucky that I got a job on the first day or if it is just this city, but it makes me feel very comfortable and welcomed,” said Charles.

Coming from a man who has now traveled to 40 countries, Melbourne seems to give off a great first impression.

“This city offers great public transportation and it is easy to get around. The architecture is so pretty to look at.” Charles stated.

Charles’ original plan was to stay about 6 months in Melbourne, but after being here for only three short days he already changed his plan. He is now going to stay for a year. He would like to even stay longer but his visa requirements only allow him to stay up to a year.
