I’ve always hated goodbyes and it’s especially hard when I love a place. Sitting here at the Brisbane airport packed and ready to fly to our next destination would be easier if I hadn’t loved Australia so much. As it is, I’m actually a little sad about leaving. We’ve had a great cycling experience.
To make leaving even harder, we’ve spent just over one glorious week in Brisbane, the longest we’ve stayed in one place in months. It’s been awesome to relax and not be on the move every day.
Thanks to the really nice people we’ve met, and the recent great bike rides (we loved Mt. Glorious, Mt. Nebo, and Mt. Clootha in Brisbane), and the perfect weather – sunny but not too hot -, and the excitement of being here when Queensland won the State of Origin decider in rugby (no offense to our New South Wales friends). We will leave Brisbane with smiles and good memories.
Our week in Brisbane has been a fabulous end to our glorious two months and 2600 kilometers in Australia!
We love you, Australia! See ya later….
