T H E R I V E R C I T Y















Done a lot of walking in Brisbane; got many blisters to show for it, its got beautiful walk ways all along the river so we must have walked about 5 or 6 miles a day. There are a few different parts to see and everyday there seemed to be a different market. The centre was bustling day and night so fortunately Ben managed to find a 24 hour sports bar for us to watch the Manchester United game which started here at 11:30pm!

In the Valley there was a free mini festival on so we got to see some live music, and had the most delicious 96% fat free passion fruit and lychee ice cream. Was told the fashion wasn't much in Australia (except maybe in Sydney and Melbourne) but found some wicked clothes shops, we were tempted by many items but uncharacteristically of us both we walked away empty handed.

All over Brisbane you can see these Lavender blossom trees and hot pink flowers and these slightly gothic looking trees where the branches wind up each other. The only wildlife we saw in Brisbane was a few lizards and some birds..surprisingly no bugs or spiders yet! After seeing the little lizard we saw a huge one about a foot long but wasn't quick enough with the camera!
