A room with a view

So, I made it to Brisbane!

I'm sorry to say that I haven't really done much yet (I will, I promise)! I've mostly been sleeping and trying to recover from all the late night packing I did the night before my very early flight yesterday morning. I think I got a total of three hours sleep and I'm still so exhausted!

But even though I've been hanging around the apartment a lot, strangely I still feel like I'm experiencing the city. I think that must be due to the amazing view– just one of the (many, many) perks of staying on the 14th floor I guess...

And this view is just as pretty, if not prettier, at night-time...

I know!! Don't be too jealous!!

Anyhoo, I better go– I'm going out for Thai food and I've been craving coconut rice for months (they don't have it in NZ, I've looked everywhere)!! Hopefully I'll be doing some exciting things in the next few days and I can share it with you all on here!

  1. Yay you're finally getting your coconut rice!! Haha. Can't wait to see more of what you get up to! Loving the view too :)

    Have a nice dinner!


    1. I didn't end up getting any tonight :( But found a nice place just down the road that sells it, so hopefully I will get some soon haha!
      I'm actually really looking forward finding lots of things to blog about– there's so much to see, I don't think I'm gonna be struggling for topics!

  2. Oooh I'm so excited for you! Have an amazing trip xx
