Where I stayed
River Plaza Apartments, Dock Street
We were really lucky because a friend of mine from when i was in Australia - Heike - moved back to Brisbane from Germany in 2008 and was able to put us up for our 2 nights there, and as a strange coincidence lives in the same apartment block i used to so Kevin got the full Liz-in-Brisbane experience
We spent out 1 day in Brisbane basically going to all my favourite spots, whilst fitting in some good old sightseeing for Kevin. We went to West End for breakfast, my old university in Nathan, and went sightseeing in the city centre. We went to the Belgium Beer Bar, one of my favourite drinking places, and wandered through the Botanical Gardens. We even made it to my regular coffee place in Southbank, Denim, although its gone from a quirky little coffee shop to a more modern Starbucks type place which was a little disappointing. Cakes were still lovely though!
We spent the evening with Heike and her boyfriend Sascha overlooking the city night lights, and every now and then boring the lads with stories about other ex-Griffith Uni friends and memories.
I was a little sad when we left the next day and by the time we had picked up the van it was almost like I had dreamt it!!
