We have arrived in Brisbane and the first couple of weeks were spent acclimating to the Australian weather and culture. All in all the culture is not so very different from the Danish culture, but the weather is a whole lot better…
The beautiful Treasury Hotel
We stayed at Minto (hostel) which is located on the South side of the river in West End. From there we could easily walk to the river and the city center. The hostel was cheap (which is why we booked the accommodation) however the building was very old and situated right next to a main road to the city which meant constant noise. Luckily we only had to stay there until we found a more permanent place which we did after only one week!
One of the first things that I noticed about Brisbane is that there is always something going on somewhere in the city. On the second night we went to South Bank where there was Night Noodle Market. We went and got some Thai food and a couple of beers. The view over the city is spectacular, especially at night.
The Night Noodle Markets – Origami in the Sky
This week it’s Ekka and we are of course going to experience that as well.
