I got to Brisbane in one piece!

Posted on October 13, 2011 | 2 minute read

Classic Liza. I get to Brisbane, catch a train to the CBD. First thing I do: stumble into a fantasy and science fiction book shop and buy a book on impulse (Germline by T.C. McCarthy). Second thing I do: sit down at an Internet cafe next door to the book shop.

The flight was good. It was delayed by about an hour, but I’m here in one piece. I’m currently in Brisbane looking every bit the tourist I am with my big luggage bag and camera on my neck.

First, I have to say that Brisbane weather is awesome. Walking out of the plane I instantly felt the mild humidity and it reminded me of Alabama. I do have to say, though, that Perth trains are much cleaner and well kept looking than the Brisbane train I was on.

Plan for today: Explore Brisbane for a couple of hours, possibly meet friend for coffee, then catch train to Gold Coast and try to find the hotel. Drop off my stuff and orientate myself, then find a chemist and buy some essentials. Like toothpaste.

Not a very exciting post, but meh. You’ll see all the exciting EB Expo stuff on the iiNet blog later. I will also be tweeting from the Expo tomorrow and Sunday.

I should probably go explore now…
