Where I stayed
Hello everyone,Firstly sorry for not updating you for a while.
Anyway, after leaving Noosa we arrived in Brisbane and were staying at the great Base Backpackers Hostel…..not!!! For anyone that is looking to go travelling we strongly suggest that you stay away from the Base chain hostels. They have no personality, the staff are downright rude and ignorant, and the kitchens and bathrooms are dirty; no matter what country you are in. We only stayed here as it was the cheapest we could find and closest to town!!!
We were in Brisbane for 5 nights, 3 nights too long!!! This is no fault of the city but because of the recent Queensland floods a lot of the tourist attractions were damaged and ultimately closed. However, we tried to fill our days with visits to The Botanical Gardens, The Secret "Sub-Tropical" Gardens, and The South Bank
The rest of the days were spent in MacDonalds using up the free internet and updating the blog. All in all Brisbane was just a little bit boring we’re afraid. Bring on Surfers Paradise!!!
Love Thomas and Hollie xxx
