Wandering in Melbourne may be one of my favorite activities. The city’s neatly ordered grid system makes it nearly impossible to get lost (and fondly reminds me of the A to Z by 1 to 16 grid of my hometown of Sacramento). However, the street art of myriad laneways and alleys spice up the straight and corporate streets. After an afternoon at Fitzroy Gardens, I stumbled across ACDC Lane. The urban paper- and grafitti-covered brick was a far cry from the sun-soaked stretches of green just meters away, a clear contrast that reminded me why I love living in Melbourne. Fun fact: ACDC Lane was named in 2004 as a tribute to the Australian rock band because ACDC lived and wrote their first two albums in Melbourne.
