Australia: Brisbane

Our Friends From Brisbane

We join our good friends Uyen and Leon in Brisbane for the holidays.  We had met them when we were all living in San Francisco.  With our arrival into Queensland comes constant downpour.  This is a great excuse to remain indoors and relax during our stay.

For a short while, we forget we are still on our travels.  Helping out with their home renovations, playing with their one-year old son, and enjoying at least two bottles of wine every night makes us feel back at home.  We apologize for the lack of pictures during this stop of our trip.

One night, we are in the mood for singing. Not having a karaoke machine on us, we decide to get creative.  With the help of YouTube on their large television screen and using remote controls as microphones, we sing all night.  We call it ghetto karaoke, but don’t diss it until you try it.

On Christmas day, we join their families for a festive dinner.  For starters, there are unlimited trays of oysters.  Being a big fan of oysters, I enjoy this new holiday tradition.  After seafood, I continue eating large quantities of Vietnamese food.  It is all super yummy.

Our friends are determined to get us out of the house against our will.  When the rain seems to subside, we take a drive out to the Gold Coast.  Still having no luck with the weather, it is more like the grey coast.  What gets Boris to finally pull out his camera is the Gold Coast Meter Maids.

We do a short hike in one of the National Parks.  It feels great to be on our feet again.  There are a few times our friend, Uyen, tries to lead us off the path but with our good orientation, she is unable to fool us.

It feels really nice to have quality time to catch up with our old pals.  Thank you Uyen, Leon, and Caellum for inviting us to your home, especially for the holidays.

Shortly after leaving Brisbane, we learn about the horrific Queensland flooding. Our hearts go out to all those families that are impacted.
