Homesick cure

Past few years have been away mostly in Europe and just missing that sweet sweet accent. The podcast doesn’t only sound good but kinda invokes a sense of busy Melb. street with trams and prams and the usual chaos. Can’t wait to return to Melb. Sending virtual hugs!!

Thank you for Fitzroy Diaries. Every street you ever lived in is suddenly a supermarket bag of joy and strength multiplied by tears of happiness.
