If you’re a regular round here, you will know that we have needed a few trips to Brisbane lately.
Dash and Violet have been dragged from pillar to post (or to be more specific, from doctors’ rooms to hospitals) as I take care of my recent diagnosis.
They have been so good – quite patient amid a fair bit of upheaval. We have tried to squeeze in some movies (I can recommend How to Train Your Dragon 2) and a little bit of ‘fun shopping’ (where Dash stocks up on all kinds of goodies and Violet inspects and then carefully leaves potential purchases on the shelf, she’s very moneywise). They are thoroughly OVER visiting the Big Smoke now however (as we face our fouth trip in four weeks) and have voted to stay with friends and family for this journey.
One thing we DID do, to try and make their school holidays SLIGHTLY enjoyable, was spend a couple of nights in a nice city apartment.
Very nice beds. Groovy linen too. But that’s not the main attraction at Brissy’s tallest building, where the Metiron apartments are.*
And it kinda got even better as the sun went down…
I was simultaneously admiring the view while thanks my lucky stars I wasn’t IN that traffic…
You’ve GOT to admit. That’s pretty. Pretty stunning really.
I was curious to see what morning would bring, when the traffic had ebbed and the early-birds of the city get active…
Rowers ready to do a U-turn…
Check out the longest shadow in this scene… that’s the building we were in. Mind blowing for a bush chick!
Do you want to know how high we were, to get these incredible views?
