      Back to brisbane

      March 6 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

      Today we left the farm which was a bit sad even though I am going back but strange to think we will all be leaving each other. Clint told us this amazing poem as well was so cool gave me goose bumps!
      Had a good day though and even went on a night out miracles do happen.

      Finally a day of sun

      February 28 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

      So today I woke up went outside at 7am and the sun was finally shining. Which was the best feeling ever. FINALLY TANNING TIME!!
      We had a nice walk around in the sun to do bit and bobs but turns out literally everywhere was closed due to the flooding but oh well. Spent the rest of the day by the pool. Even had pancakes ready for pancake day tomorrow.Read more

      Nice legs and tasty pancakes. The flooding looks really bad, is the water level going down quite quickly? Hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing day. Did you get all your jobs done before you leave for the farm !

      We went to get the tain home and they have stopped everything all bus's, trains, taxis the lot.

      Things we haven’t seen in England

      December 10, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

      One aspect that we both really like about Australia is that nothing really happened about Christmas until 1st December. Even now some shopping centres are not playing Christmas songs although some stores are. There are small displays not the huge displays that take over the whole shop. Some houses have strings of lights our baubles on trees but there is not the overkill that we see in Calne.

      All in all we have found Australia far more laid back about Christmas even now compared to England when we left in mid-October.

      Therefore we were not expecting to see Father Christmas on a jet ski on the river Brisbane or a bus decorated like Santa’s grotto. Very unexpected.

      The low key approach enables us to reflect upon what the real meaning of Christmas is ......

      Mount Coot-Tha

      October 27, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

      Another day, another motorhome to see. This one was a beast. 4 tonnes of 4wd, on pneumatic (lift/lower) suspension. Designed for off road so that the accommodation doesn’t fall off when driven across extreme terrain. While this will give us options to go anywhere and not get stuck, I wonder how easy it will be to sell at the end of our trip? Again, a good learning experience and some sound advice about what works in Australia.

      The afternoon consisted of a visit to Mount Coot-Tha that overlooks Brisbane. At its foot is the cemetery where Bun & Mike’s mother’s ashes are, so we stopped off there to say “Hi” and also Bun had never been there. The cemetery is “heritage” so should remain forever .... it is vast and almost full, I wonder how long “forever” is when it has no relevance to anyone left alive which is what it will become after it’s full.

      Drove up to the summit where there is a lookout. It’s a bit hazy so the view was limited. Are there fires somewhere with the smoke causing the haze? At the foot, near the cemetery, is a botanical gardens. Time was running out as we were going out to our first Aussie BBQ this evening. We stopped for a drink before a slightly rushed walk around part of the gardens. Bun and I will have to go back when less rushed. The gardens are beautiful and full of wildlife.

      The BBQ was with Bob and Robin (Robyn?). Bob was RAAF and Robin a nurse. Their house is amazing, beautiful and airy with high ceilings. Bob gets frustrated that the large gardens are messed up by the local (protected) bush turkeys. Lizards and snakes co-habit the garden, some less welcome than others. At dusk, fruit bats flew in and out of the surrounding trees. Bob does most of the cooking and had prepared his own marinade for the satay chicken and prawns on skewers. The main BBQ was sausages, I wasn’t expecting that. Bob makes his own skinless sausages so they were pretty special. Hopefully we’ll go back again as we hadn’t finished our discussions about where to visit in NSW.

      Roadtrip day 8

      September 21, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

      4:45 Uhr klingelte auch schon der Wecker und die Nacht war für uns vorbei. Unser Plan war auf einen nahegelegenen Berg zu wandern, um von da aus den Sonnenaufgang über dem berühmt berüchtigten Glass House Mountain zu sehen.
      Mit diesem Plan waren wir leider nicht die einzigen.
      Nach dem Frühstück, mit gigantischer Aussicht, ging es endlich nach Brisbane.
      In einem familiengeführten Hotel haben wir Unterkunft mit Frühstück gefunden. Dafür müssen wir 24 Stunden die Woche arbeiten.
      Das Hotel liegt dafür aber sehr zentral und direkt am Wasser, mit Blick auf die Skyline.
      Die nächsten Tage heißt es dann auf Jobsuche gehen, welche hoffentlich diesmal erfolgreicher verläuft.

      Brisbane!

      December 7, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 36 °C

      Als ich ja morgens dann in Brisbane endlich angekommen war, durfte ich allerdings erst um 14 Uhr einchecken. Also habe ich mich in den TV Raum auf die Couch gelegt und bis um 13 Uhr gepennnt 😅
      Nachdem ich dann endlich einchecken konnte, bin ich aufs Zimmer. Welches für ein Hostel echt schön ist und thanks God ich habe ein eigenes Badezimmer und Dusche! 😍 Nach einer kleinen Dusche habe ich mich dann auf dem Weg zum South Beach oder Streets BEACH gemacht. Brisbane ist echt ne schöne Stadt. Finde ich tatsächlich schöner als Sydney :). An dem Strand angekommen, habe ich mir was zu essen geholt und habe mich in die Sonne gelegt. Man muss dazu sagen, dass ich beim Essen von dem berühmten Bin Chicken attackiert wurde, demnach musste ich mein Essen verteidigen, indem ich entschied unterwegs zu essen😅
      Der Beach ist echt super schön! Es ist ein künstlich angelegter Strand in mitten von Brisbane am Fluss. Der ist öffentlich für alle zugänglich und umsonst, was echt mega ist!
      Auf dem Weg nach Hause habe ich mich dann noch mit meinem Roommate aus Sydney getroffen. Wir haben ein Eis gegessen und sind dann zusammen in Richtung Hostel. Ich bin dann noch einkaufen gewesen und habe mein Ausflug für Dienstag gebucht 😁 ich verrate aber noch nicht was es ist! Danach habe ich mich dann umgezogen und noch auf der Dachterrasse mit meinen alten Roommate zwei Bierchen getrunken und den Abend ausklingen lassen 😊

      When I finally arrived in Brisbane in the morning, I wasn't allowed to check in until 2 o'clock. So I lay down in the TV room on the couch and I slept until 1pm 😅
      After I could finally check in, I went to my room. Which is really nice for a hostel and thanks God I have my own bathroom and shower! 😍 After a little shower I made my way to the South Beach or Streets BEACH. Brisbane is really a beautiful city. I actually find it more beautiful than Sydney :). Arrived at the beach, I got something to eat and lay down in the sun. It has to be said that I was attacked by the famous Bin Chicken while eating😅
      The beach is really super beautiful! It is an artificial beach in the middle of Brisbane at the river. It is open to the public and free of charge, which is really nice!
      On the way home I met with my roommate from Sydney. We ate an ice cream and went together towards the hostel. I went shopping and booked my trip for Tuesday 😁 but I don't tell you what it is yet! Then I changed my clothes and we drank two beers on the roof terrace with my old Roommate and let the evening end 😊

      1. Tag Brisbane

      August 2 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      Ich hab es geschafft ich bin in Brisbane und fast 3 Jahre nachdem ich das letzte Mal da war fühle ich mich hier genauso wohl ☺️. Der Flug war echt gut ich hab auf dem Weg nach Dubai eine Reihe nur für mich gehabt und auf dem Weg nach Brisbane nette Sitznachbarn, die mich immer geweckt haben wenn es etwas zu essen gab. In Dubai fand ich 6 Stunden alleine rum zu kriegen echt anstrengend und ich wollte auch nicht die ganze Zeit sitzen weil ich ja nach Brisbane 13 Stunden im Flieger saß. Also bin ich so lange durch den Flughafen gelaufen bis ich mein Tagesschrittziel erreicht habe 😅. Um 23 Uhr war ich dann im Hostel und gegen 12 Uhr habe ich geschlafen - sogar erstaunlich gut aber leider nur bis um 5 danach hatte ich Hummeln im Po und mir tat der Rücken weh. Aber so hatte ich die Gelegenheit Brisbane im Nebel zu sehen und sitze jetzt bei schönstem Sonnenschein und 23 Grad Celsius in South Bank und trinke meinen 3. Kaffee☺️ mir geht's echt gut 🫶🏾🥹 ich bin so dankbar hier zu sein.Read more
