It’s hot and sunny again in Brisbane, not that we are complaining, you understand. With the school holidays in full swing, the CBD is chock full of family groups, and sultry looking teenage girls.
We have been very interested in all the bike stands we have found around the city, such as this one, just outside our apartment building. There are 150 CityCycle bike stations with up to 2000 bikes available across the inner city. CityCycle, Brisbane's public bike share scheme, is an active and sustainable type of public transport that encourages more people to cycle around the inner city, a quick, affordable and easy alternative to short trips by car, public transport or walking.

We had a little shopping spree today – never a good thing to do when the weather is hot and sticky. Found some new shorts for Robin, and a couple of items for me. We had never been in a Myer’s store before, not too sure if this company has shops in New Zealand.
We lunched at one of the many Food Halls dotted around close by. Robin went for an old favourite, burger and chips, while I decided to try something different, and ordered ginger pork and rice from the hard working Japanese cooks.

Our Aussie adventure is almost over. Tomorrow will be an early morning as we have to return the hire car and get to the airport by 5.30am. There could well be a go slow with staff taking industrial action, we will have to wait and see how it all works out.
