Jus wondering if anybody on their travels has lived in both Sydney and Melbourne? As I am thinking of spending quite a few months in both.

I have been living in Melbourne for the past three months and absolutely love it as it is a beautiful city with so much to offer. Whether its the tons of relaxed little caf├ęs, restaurants or generally very friendly people, I'm glad I have the chance to spent some time of my life here .

Nevertheless Sydney is also a great place, I've never lived there but visited three times and stayed with friends for a few weeks. It seemed a lot bigger/busier than Melbourne with a much higher pace of life and less arty/bohemian atmosphere. A definte plus for Sydney though is that you have the beaches in the city and the weather is better than in Melbourne (that's not that difficult ;)).
One more downside is that apaprently rent there is much higher than in Melbourne.

Hth,

Steff

As they say, "Melbourne's the lady, Sydney's the whore"
or "Sydney's the one night stand, Melbourne's the one you take home to meet your Mum"
