Hi everyone, I’m Pauline and have called Melbourne home for the last couple of years, having grown up in Brisbane and lived in London and New York. What I love about Melbourne is the diversity – of both people and places. Most Melburnians have a good grasp of work life balance, which makes for excellent cultural and culinary scenes. Melbourne is a city obsessed with good food and fanatical about coffee. Mere hours away, you have beaches, islands, ski fields, mountain ranges and wineries. No wonder it has been named the World’s Most Liveable City.
My all time favourite cuisine is Mediterranean, especially Greek. I enjoy quality time with friends savouring great food and wine and, come summer, I keep a keen eye on the weather forecast for those hot summer nights when you will find me at a rooftop bar. Mostly I prefer cosy lounges to bustling stand up bars and anywhere that has table service for drinks gets a big tick from me! Apart from eating and drinking, I especially enjoy hiking and yoga.
A self-confessed neophile, I’m always on the lookout for new and exciting places and experiences and I’m delighted to be able to share my insider haunts with you on Urban Usher.
