Brisbane, also known as “Brisbania” amongst ourselves, is the third biggest city in Australia. It’s difficult to describe a city like Brisbane: Skyscrapers are built next to beautiful historical buildings, Ferry boats have replaced city trams and there is a lagoon in the city center next to the Brisbane River.
Because Brisbania has so much to offer, we decided to stay for 2 nights. We explored the South Banks and the lagoon on the first day, and walked through the whole city the next day. We noticed that the Brisbanian inhabitants are a friendly tribe of people. For example: We saw one bus driver get out of his bus to save a rat-like creature (a possum?) from being run over by gently poking it back to the sidewalk with his bottle of water. It could come straight out of a Carl Hiaasen novel.
To be quite honest, we don’t have much more to say as we chillaxed most of the time and simply enjoyed the city athmosphere.
