Familiar, Yet Foreign

Strolling through the alleys, taking in the scents of the streets and the cold winter air. There’s nothing I enjoy more than exploring cities.

It had been six years since my last visit, and it was a strange feeling to be walking down those streets again and seeing different shops this time. I kept asking myself, “Was this here before? Is this restaurant new?”

In the quest for familiarity, I found foreignness.

I was viewing Melbourne through fresh eyes.
