Well since my last entry we’ve come up in the world, no longer live in a tent in a trailer park and have in fact signed binding contract and accepted the keys to our brand spanking new, absolutely fabulous apartment in Brisbane . Unlike in a tent we can stand up straight, unlike at a hostel we have our own bathrooms….note the ‘s’….and most importantly we have this thing called a television and we even have a DVD player courtesy of Aldi (where the cashiers now know our names). Weather’s picked up…still hoping my tan will improve before I head home.
Am I mad considering giving all this up and heading back to dreary Ireland , boring Brittas and the monotony of The Lakes I hear Mo ask well yup probably but that’s the plan! Have a date with Quantas airlines later this week and I’m hoping they’ll send me back to reality within a month.
Brisbane ’s lovely, a really nice city and we’re in a really nice area. We live in China Town which is ‘oh so cosmo’ and only a quick stroll from the city centre. The area seems quite lively, lots of
pubs and clubs (that we can’t afford to check out) and a huge video store (sleep has been replaced with ‘DVD time’).
I’ll probably hang around here a while longer…until the novelty of home comforts wears off, and then I’m going to take a trip to Moreton Island before I head up the coast to the Whitsundays to sail around the Great Barrier Reef, then its back down to Sydney for my flights, if I’m not too pressed for time I might try and take in Melbourne on the way.
So that’s my news, how about you guys…anything strange or startling?
