Day 15 - Brisbane

Well folks we are at the end of our journey in this great country of Australia. We had a great time and I think I had an even better time recollecting and writing about our adventure. I definitely think that Australia was just what the Dr. Expat ordered, a nice taste of Western civilization again.

I have to say I would love to live in Australia. I would even go as far as saying we all would love to live here. I didn’t really realize how much I love the beach until we spent almost every chance we had on one. There is so much pristine beauty here that it can overwhelm a person. It is always nice to have a dream, but who knows we might try and make it a reality someday.

We will be leaving tomorrow evening at 11:30 p.m. and will be back to Chengdu on Monday afternoon. Unfortunately we will miss the Super Bowl, which my favorite team, the Pittsburg Steelers should win big. Look forward to catching up with everyone when we get back.

Kim,

Your trip sounds fantastic and I know what you mean about wanting to live there. The people, the beaches, the beauty are truly beautiful. Your trip to the Gold Coast has inspired me to want to visit.
Keep on blogging, I so look forward to following you on your adventure. Jean Stachon (Widdup)

Hey - Looks as beautiful as I remember. I had many good days and nights in Surfers. I think I even went to the Irish bar you were at. Australia is definitely an area I'd consider living too!
