We found a place of our own and we are signing a lease on Friday morning! It is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom (aka come visit us!!!) flat complete with some fabulous outdoor space (read Australian living room).We are moving into a neighborhood called New Farm. It is an inner city suburb complete with a some beautiful parks.
Pictures to follow as soon as we get our grubby little mitts on the keys. But for now here are some shots from the internet of our new ‘hood.
The famous New Farm Park.
An excellent live arts venue, the Powerhouse.
And some awesome bowls clubs that we hope to join soon.
We are looking forward to our new place but must first find some household items like a bed oh and some utensils…….
After saying our final good-byes we began our journey to Brisbane on our inaugural voyage aboard China Eastern. We were greeted with great hospitality and enjoyed an interesting yet pretty yummy in-flight meal complete with tapioca pudding for dessert!
Our first flight was 15 hours to Shanghai. After a quick layover we were on an 11 hour flight to Sydney. After such a long journey we were happily greeted by the Sydney Harbor.
And then after a quick layover it was onto Brisbane.
And to bed, a 30 hour flight and jetlag always gets ya!
We have lots more exciting news that I need to catch up on here, we will be back asap!
Also Happy Birthday Allie, so great to be able to spend the day with you.
Tomorrow we are Brisbane bound (via Shanghai and Sydney of course!); for now it is good bye Philly:
We will miss our friends and family terribly but are excited for the adventures ahead!
Catch you on the flip side!
Last week Ryan proposed, we are now engaged!
