Sydney – Day 15

Emmy and I started the morning with a bit of shopping. Centrepoint tower is a block away and beneath that is lots of retail real estate. We didn’t buy anything, but we covered a lot of territory. Hui came around just before lunch and we headed off to lunch at Darling Harbour. He took us to a seafood restaurant he had heard good things about called Nick’s. It was a nightmare experience the whole thing […]

The place we stayed at had a huge swamp in the middle of it and it was surrounded in a circle by all the ‘bungalows’. One interesting thing did happen though. I […]

Brisbane – Day 11

Our plane was running an hour late, so all our early morning rush was for nothing. When we arrived in Brisbane the drive out of the airport was pretty good, but finding a park in the Brisbane CBD was a nightmare. Eventually I found a 10 minute zone spot and rushed in to check-in so I could get access to the hotel’s underground car park. By the time we were settled we really didn’t have […]
