    Brisbane

    October 31, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Despite my alarm not going off until 7am, I was wide awake just before 6am. It gave us plenty of time to pack up our things, say our goodbyes to everyone, including Tyson, before catching the bus to Brisbane. For the next couple of days we are staying at an Airbnb in the area of Bardon with our host Mel. We arrived at Mel's just after 1pm so made ourselves up some lunch before venturing out to find somewhere for Simon to get his hair cut and grab some Go cards for the bus, Brisbane's equivalent of the Oyster card. When we arrived at the barbers though, he was shutting up shop a couple of hours early as he had to pick his kids up from school. The newsagents that we had googled to buy the Go cards was also closed down. Very unsuccessful trip. We therefore ended walking an extra 20 minutes in the opposite direction to a 7-Eleven in the scorching Brisbane heat and then another 20 minutes back to our Airbnb. We did have a little rest in a park en route to cool down in the shade for a bit though. Back at Mel's, we spent the rest of the afternoon chilling on her veranda which was really nice. Mel came home around 5:30pm from work and we chatted and watched TV with her for the rest of the evening. She is really lovely so I think we are going to enjoy our stay here.Read more

    Day 2 - Brisbane

    November 1, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    We are in dire need of some new clothes so this morning we decided to do a spot of shopping. Simons shorts are pretty grubby and mine are hanging off me so it's time to treat ourselves to some new ones. Simons pants have so many holes in that I'm not sure they suit their purpose anymore so we need to get him some of those too. Simon went to get his hair cut in the morning so by the time we made it into the city centre it was almost lunch time. When we got off the bus we stumbled across a cute little food market which had so many yummy things to eat it was difficult to decide what to have for lunch. I eventually decided on a delicious salad box with sweet potato cakes and humous and Simon went for some shredded chicken Thai style rice wraps which were so big he had to save one for later.

    After a couple of hours we'd had enough of shopping so we headed to South Bank to check out the lagoon for a spot of sunbathing. Like the ones in Cairns and Airlie Beach, this one was also great. We stayed at the lagoon until the sun went down and then we went in search of a Woolies to grab some bits for dinner and headed back to Mel's.
