Breaking it in.

Hello again and major apologies for the absence. We have been quite busy around these parts.

Firstly we have moved into our new place and are LOVING it!

Here are a few photos of our new casa:

The front of our building, we are on the ground floor in the back right unit.


Our backyard, we are working on an herb garden (Ryan’s request) and some more chairs.


And our street looking down to the Brisbane River and our CityCat stop. Hopefully we will be using the CityCat to get to work!


Other than settling into our new place we have been exploring the city via all forms of transport including on the river.


We also saw great fireworks at the Riverfire Festival from our friend’s balcony. They were probably one of the best we had ever seen!

And the most exciting news of all….Pia beat Ryan in bowling. The Southern Hemisphere has really helped Pia’s game! The proof is in the final score.



We have been spending the rest of our days meeting and catching up with friends, job hunting (send good thoughts!), and enjoying life in Australia!


Last night we threw Ryan a surprise 29th Birthday Party. Even though his birthday is on the 22nd we decided to surpise him with a party a few weeks early.

It was a great night with friends from all parts of our lives.

The night was filled with delicious cake.

Lots of bowling.

And great friends.

Happy 29th Birthday to Ryan and thank you to all who were able to celebrate!
