Yesterday we flew to Charleville and today we will move on to Birdsville via Windorah where we will have lunch and fuel up the aircraft. This is a much longer track than that of yesterday. Now we are really going to enter the outback.Read full article
Thursday 19 March: our first flying day in Australia. Today we fly from Toowoomba to Charleville. This trip is relatively short, but contains one challenging hurdle: we need to cross the controlled airspace of the military base in Oakey. Once we have passed this airspace, we will not encounter any controlled airspace for almost a week.Read full article
It’s been a few days since I posted my last blog. As stated before, we don’t always have access to the Internet. And as a result of that, I have not been to upload all my photos yet. So what happened? Well, the air safari started.Read full article
Today, Monday 16 March, is my last full day in Brisbane.
Tomorrow afternoon I will be picked up to go to Toowoomba where the air safari starts. Today started by doing the laundry; this took the bigger part of the morning and since you can’t go for a long time (others were waiting for the washer, so I had to make sure to get my stuff out as soon as the machine stopped spinning) I was stuck to the hotel.
After this very exciting start of the day, I walked to the South Bank again. I enjoyed some time hanging around over there before pottering back to the city. Last time to have a Grande Latte at my favorite Starbucks Coffee on the corner of Queen and Creek street. It’s been a very relaxed and hot day today.
So how was Brisbane? It’s a great place to just relax or hang out. I think it’s a nice place to live and work. But for the tourist, there’s just not enough to stay here for more than let’s say three days. After that you want to go further away from town and see what’s in the area.
I will not have access to the Internet on Tuesday and it’s unclear for the days after that. So this may be the last post for a few days. But don’t worry: you will not miss a thing as I will share everything with you as soon as I get back online.
