As we cruise towards Brisbane I see a small pod of spinner dolphins from the balcony. (They spin around as they break water.) Just then Ian enters the cabin and we watch them for several minutes together. It would have been sad to have gone the entire cruise without seeing dolphins, other have been spotted many times but we always seemed to miss them. In the morning on opening our curtains after mooring during the early hours at the brand new Brisbane International Cruise Terminal we have a pleasing vista of lush green woodland, reeds and a muddy beach. The effect is spoilt slightly when we go out onto the balcony look towards the city and see a series of car parks, an industrial area and the city airport. Ah well. Some facts about Brisbane; Brisbane ... read more

J'ai commandé un faux filet de boeuf, un délice, comparable à ceux que j'avais mangé en Argentine. 3 jeunes femmes asiatiques, 40-50 ans, très classe, arrivées en même temps que moi, et installées juste à côté, 2 ont commandées des huitres, et l'autre une "plancha" de charcuterie fromage, j'en bavais, surtout qu'elle triait (en français ou en lyonnais) elle pignochait. J'en aurais fait 3 bouchées. Les 2 autres avec les huitres, ne mangeaient que la bête, à la fourchette, et rejetaient l'eau dans le plat. Par contre avec le rosé, il me semble du Minuti, là ... read more

As a director of Inbound Media, I often have to travel to different cities in Australia to either meet clients or attend conferences. Recently, I got a chance to explore Brisbane city thanks to a Google SEO (Search Engine optimisation) conference. Firstly, the conference was amazing where I got the chance to meet some amazing digital marketing and SEO experts. It was also great to network with other business owners and marketing professionals. Some of them are in my business network now. But mainly in this article, I want to share my experience of Brisbane city which is Australia's 3rd largest city in the Sunshine state of Queensland.

Part of the riverside site where the gardens are located was originally a botanic reserve. It was established in 1828 to provide food for the early penal colony.

This is a report about Brisbane which I wrote when learning English at TAFE and I would like to share with you. I have learned different types of writing, such as report, narrative, exposition, biography, discussion essay, cause and effect essay, and persuasive essay (or argumentative essay). Learning academic writing was a great experience which I have really enjoyed. I hope to become an English teacher in the future, and one of my plans is to teach English at an orphanage in Vietnam.
