Hi all,

We have left Fiji and arrived today in Brisbane after a 4 hour flight...it is a flying visit because tomorrow we fly to Perth.

We wanted to explore the City centre so we found a cheapish $80 hotel in the centre. We arrived at the hotel and the location was perfect shame about the rest of the hotel. We have both never in our lives stayed in a room so small and to make it worse it didn't have a window on the good side the room was very clean so we decided to stay.

We got our map out and headed for the …..river which was a 5 minute walk from were we stayed. We walked down the riverbank and went on the Brisbane Wheel (just like the London Eye). We visited the man made beach on the river and walked through the gardens Then walked around the shops and discovered Brisbane is a very arty type of city…a nice calm feel for a busy City. Then we headed back to our hotel as we were very tired after getting up at 3am to get our flight.

We ended the day by eating Subway for dinner not very exciting but we had zero energy. We woke the next day at 6am after a terrible nights sleep the mattress was like concrete and it was too way to warm in the windowless room. Anyway we walked to the bus stop and waited for our bus to the airport, we have never been so pleased to get up and leave a hotel :-)

Bye for now
