The first 5 weeks of work passed by like a blink of an eye. Even so, we were already ready for a vacation, bring it on!
Hung out in the Qantas Lounge at the airport before flying back to Brisbane! Here’s the view!
We picked up our rental car at the airport and checked in at our hotel – Riverside Hotel Southbank. Clean, modern, good size, and exactly what we needed! Had a daytime nap and rested in bed watching the Oscars.
So nice to being back in Brisbane! After resting, we had a lovely walk around South Bank, bought some Max Brenner chocolates for family, and stopped for a snack at Ahmet’s. Their dinner banquets are definitely worth trying friends!
Excited for food!
Freshly baked Turkish bread glazed with butter and herbs ($5.50)
With a side of Baba ghanoush ($4.90) – one of our favourite kinds of dip, made with roasted eggplant
We also got some Mucver – Green zucchini fritters with tomato salsa, fresh mint & dill yoghurt ($11). Tasty, but much greasier than we personally like.
Later that night, we went over to Matt and Kristen’s for dinner, joined by James and Kim! So, so nice to see and catch up with them! Felt like forever since spending time with them! Matt and Kristen made yummy chili con carne, James and Kim brought 2 kinds of cheesecake and we brought some wine. So delicious and filling, and in great company too! We miss you guys!
