Sorry for the delayed video. We usually post on Mondays but we were in Melbourne for the past week for the YouTube Creator Summit and for Vidcon. I’m not going to go over all that we did there during the week, but we talk about it for this week’s podcast. Spoiler alert: I found inner peace through a Zen Master.
During that week there were a bunch of social events that we attended where we met some lovely, lovely people: Tina Yong, My Cupcake Addiction, Prestige Clips, Bounce Patrol, Annika Victoria and many more. All truly great people to speak with. I wish we spent more time with them, but we were really interested in checking out some of the food spots in Melbourne, so we skipped out on some of the events to get some grub. How antisocial of us! It’s the same thing we do here in Japan and did back in Korea. Friends are like “hey let’s hang” and we’re like “NAH WE GOTTA EAT” and then we’re bad friends. But I like to think that we had a good balance of social interaction and personal responsibility. Yeah. That’s what I’ll tell myself.
Our list of places we visited was short because we didn’t have a lot of free time. I’d really like to go back to Melbourne again one day. I actually liked it a lot better this time than the last time we went a few years ago. I feel like I appreciate the architecture so much more now than I did. Everywhere just looked so funky. We got into watching rugby as well and loved it! Our experience around the city was delightful. If you’re going to Melbourne, you’re gonna have a blast.
