Well we’ve made it to the end of our Great Australia Adventure! We spent our last couple days in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland.

In addition to some last minute souvenir shopping and touristy walk-abouts in the CBD, we also explored the South Bank on the Brisbane River and visited the local art museums.

Tomorrow we start the long journey home, and while we can’t wait to see our friends and family (and of course Beans the cat), we sure will miss the people and places of Australia. See you soon, ‘Merica!
