We recently took a trip north to sunny Brisbane to visit our friends Jesse and Aaron.
They were kind enough to host us, and also show us around Queensland’s capital city.
Brisbane is a river city, and it’s highlights seem to lie along the banks of the Brisbane river. Our hosts live in the CBD, but a short walk got us to a free ferry that took us about a kilometre south to the parklands of the South Bank. We were visiting during the annual Brisbane Budha festival, the worlds largest celebration of Buddha’s birthday. Following our trip along the south bank, we walked back to our hosts apartment in the CBD. That evening, we went out for Mexican food with a few other people. The portions were small, but the food, and the company, was fabulous.
Everyone slept well that night, which was good, because the next day we were off to the Sunshine Coast.
