The City

So let’s continue with the city =) The first days we searched for an apartment to me and we tried to fit in some sightseeing as well and we managed pretty good. I finally found one so after our roadtrip we’ve stayed at my apartment and we’ve had plenty of time to do fun stuff too.

Café:

CampoS // My sister had googled the best breakfast spot in Brisbane so we decided to give it a try. The menu selection looks super weird and I chose the only thing I knew, bacon, egg and bread haha. But it was very, very good. CampoS is located in quite many places in the city so it’s easy to find it. I think I will give it a try again 🙂

Shopping:

Queen St Mall // We were going to leave it to the last day before my sister goes back home but please, who can resist? 😛 We’ve been at Queen St Mall a few times already and it’s quite nice there. It’s actually and outdoor mall so not a big shopping center. They have everything from cheap shops to shops you don’t even dare go in to haha.

Riverside Market // Sunday is market day 🙂 There are so many that we just picked three but only had time for two. Riverside Market is in the Botanic Gardens and it’s pretty small. They had some food, veggies and handmade things. We walked there for like 5-10mins and then we continued exploring the Botanic Gardens =)

Eat St Market // I will spend every Sunday here I think haha!! Yes, it’s all about food. We got there pretty late, like 1,5hr  before closing but it still gave us time to eat and by cupcakes and nuts hihi. They have food from all over the world and the most delicious desserts ever.

Festivals:

The Ekka // We never planned going to the Ekka which is a 10 day celebration here in Brisbane. I honestly don’t know what they celebrated but it was fun! I wanted to see the firework show so we went about 40 mins before they would start. We got to see a really cool motorcycle show, which was also a bit scary, and then it all started. It was spectacular!! A dj was playing music and the fireworks were kind of matching it. I’m happy I got to see it. Aussies sure know how to celebrate holidays. They also had attractions, games and much more. It was a very large area and arena.

Indian Day Fair // Another holiday celebration but for Indians. They had Indian food, music, dancers and shows. It was in the Roma St Parklands (beautiful!) but the fair was quite small. We bought some good food and then sat down and listened to the singers. It was so nice to see all the Indian ladies dressed in beautiful saris.

Parks:

Roma St Parklands // I’m so happy there are many parks here because I love it and it reminds me of Gothenburg. Parks in the city center… Perfect! Here’s something fun haha. The hotel we stayed at the first days was just in front of the parklands and we had no idea. It’s a very beautiful park with waterfalls, flowers of all colors, a stage and just big green areas where you can barbecue. I loved it.

Botanic Gardens // Another big, beautiful park in the city center. It’s within walking distance from Queen St, just like Roma St. We had a stroll along the river and then inside the park. How perfectly located can it get? I can’t wait to get back there!!

Adventure:

Story Bridge // Okay, so first of all I’m as you maybe know after my Cluj post that I’m afraid of heights. And to climb a bridge where you can see all the way down through the stairs is scary but I did it. It was super cool and super hot haha. We were sweating so much! We climbed so many stairs up and down and we were at the top of the bridge and the sun was shining. We had an amazing view from up there!
