We flew to Brisbane on Friday and caught up with a dear friend who has recently moved there from Sydney. He showed us around his new city; we wandered, explored, ate and drank, (and had a bit of a shop)! I loved catching up with such a kind, generous and totally cool friend. Brisbane was happy, bright and friendly and there was a festival of some sort on, so there were lights and mirror balls hanging from trees and buildings. I would love to go back and see the festival at night though, I'm sure the lanterns and the light show would have been spectacular!
