So dave and I arrived in Brisbane today…swiftly checked into our hotel and then went off on excursions around downtown to see if we could spot all my old haunts. We had a vanilla slice (MMMMMMM – just as yummy as in my dreams) at the Coffee Club, and then headed down to have a local brew at Pig & Whistle. No clue what we’ll do for dinner yet – but we’re thinking of heading into Fortitude Valley. The next few days we’ll be bumming around Brisbane, then we’re off to Byron Bay! We realized today that we only have 2 weeks of our trip left – so surreal! I am really sad about that – but happy too that it means I’m a bit closer to seeing friends and family back home. It is what it is I guess – just amazing that time travels so quickly.
The past few days we were in BEAUTIFUL Fraser Island….had an amaaaaazing time on the 3 day Fraser tour with Fraser Island Company. Rossco was the best guide and we had a ball with our two new English friends Matt and Zoe. We had a blast – and saw such amazing things. Even though I’d been to Fraser Island before this trip was so incredible and I felt like I was seeing everything again for the first time. And this time I got to see a dingo (actually several!) So awesome!!!
Thinking of all you brissy girls here!!! It’s still the same fun town – but looks sort of busier and more international now that I actually am looking around and not just trying to get from point a to b. I’ll have a brew at Down Under bar for you tonight!!!
as always more pics can be seen on my flickr stream!
