We are enjoying a beautiful Saturday. This morning we went to the West End Markets to pick up some fruits and veggies. We also met up with Allie, Paddy (Pia’s cousin) & a few others for a Saturday morning yarn.
This afternoon our friend Thomas came over to visit us in New Farm. He suggested we throw a frisbee in New Farm Park, glorious idea.
October is also the time of year that the Jacaranda trees are in full bloom and are absolutely stunning in their vibrant purple color.
Hope your Saturday is as beautiful as ours. We are having a relaxing night making Pizza on our BBQ tonight!
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!
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!
