AustraliaAir SafariRed Centre Tour

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.

Picture gallery nightmare...

It’s official now: I hate this picture gallery!

While waiting for the washer and dryer, I found out why you now and then get errors when clicking on the pictures in the blog entries: the gallery does not have the right sized image available.

Last day in town

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.

Last night during the dinner with Clare, he mentioned that there was a boat going up the river to a place where they keep lots of koalas…

What's going on down there?

Cyclone Hamish has caused a big problem here. A cargo ship lost 31 containers with chemicals and one of these containers punched a hole in the oil tank of the ship. Result: a big oil spill (230 ton of it) along the coast (it’s spread over 60 km). And that’s a big issue for this area. Not only because of the impact on nature, but this is the area where the nice beaches and the surfers are. So it has also an economical impact and that’s painful in these difficult times.
