Solitude in the Air

“For me a flight is just a brief retreat in the sky. There’s nothing I can do, so it’s really quite liberating. There’s nowhere else I can be. So I just sit and watch the clouds and the blue sky. Everything is still and everything is moving. It’s beautiful.”

– Matthieu Ricad, as quoted from “The Art of Stillness: Adventures in Going Nowhere”

Around Woolloongabba

Around the suburb we stayed. I couldn’t have asked for a better location and quality of accommodation, given our budget and lack of knowledge of the area! From our balcony, we were treated to daily views of the sunrise and sunset.

We were also walking distance away from the supermarket, and the hospital where we did our placement.

Thank you Woolloongabba, for making our Brisbane experience such a scenic and convenient one:)

McPherson Park

Only in Brisbane, where people can still wear shorts and t-shirts in winter.

Only in Brisbane, where it is not considered uncommon to sell and eat snow cones in winter.

Only in Brisbane, can the weather change within suddenly, resulting in the most dramatic downpour just a few minutes after these pictures were taken.
