My Journey Round The World

279 days on the road…



AUSTRALIA: Brisbane

2010-04-AUSTRALIA-brisbane

Brisbane, Australia’s third-largest city… Quite a shock after small NZ even though the city center is compact and easily manageable by foot. Modern city with it’s interesting pedestrian and cycle Goodwill Bridge, Queensland Art Gallery and Musuem on the South Bank area. Thanks to Patrick - my couchsurfer host for 2 nights – I found out about a hat exhibition at the Queensland Art Gallery: Hats an anthology by Stephen Joneshttp://qag.qld.gov.au/exhibitions/current/hats_an_anthology_by_stephen_jonesso glad about it as I love hat :)

On my third day, I went to visit Roma Street Parkland - http://www.romastreetparkland.com - the world largest subtropical gardens in a city centre – Baptiste you would love it! –  There are iguanas and other kind of reptile as well as scary animals all around!!! As they call it: Brisbane’s oasis… paradise in the heart of the city! Worth a visit and much better than the Botanical Garden who is no more and no less than a park…

Talking about paradise, this is exactly where I ended up after my 2 nights on a couch. Thanks to my dear friend Tanya I could reach Rachel by phone - a good friend of her I met when I was in Vancouver at the beginning of my trip and which I missed about few hours in Brisbane! – who offered me a wonderful place to stay in Fortitude Valley area close to Chinatown where I could enjoy a swimm everyday – it was a real pleasure after such a long time! THANK YOU SO MUCH TANYA & RACHEL!!!

I’m now heading toward the Great Barrier Reef with Gerhard - an Austrian travel partner – stopping at Fraser Island & Airlie Beach and maybe up to Cairns. We’ll see how the cohabitation in the jeep works!
