Warm weather. Super family friendly city. Great public transport - free buses and ferries. Great train connection from airport to city. Super l-o-n-g tunnels under the city to the airport. So much to do. Museum of Brisbane great - neat little exhibition on the river. Queensland Museum great too. Vaiapiano pizza/pasta made right there for you. James Street in Fortitude Valley - yikes and wow together! Walking and more walking. An apartment on the 40th floor with views to die for at an incredibly reasonable price. (But fire alarms - two of them and that wasn't funny...). Big W and Target for books. Target for 2 gorgeous linen dresses, tees and shoes and underwear - mostly on sale. Postcards. Photos. Cheap milk in supermarkets. (but bread and biscuits - RUBBISH. Where are the New Zealand choices in Aussie supermarkets? Our supermarkets are full of Aussie brands. marmite though found and cheaper (!!) in Australia). South Bank. Streets Beach. Cafes.
Ahh Brisbane. Love you. Back to a floor hitting reality with much colder weather, nonsense during the day, HIDEOUS critique essay to write, little food, laundry back log. I need to knit and drink wine quite frankly and de-stress in a biiiiiig way. Holidays. Lovely. When are the next school hols???
