We can’t believe it – we’re finally here! The weather is Wunderbar and sunny, no wonder why our family here is in love with Brisbane.
They were going to take us sight seeing, but they were really busy organising things for your Oktoberfest here. We’ve never been to an Oktoberfest outside of Munich, so I’m excited to see how you Aussies celebrate!
Unfortunately, we didn’t manage to get some sleep on the flight from LA, so we needed a quick ‘teddy-nap’ before starting to explore.
After a wonderful rest we were ready for action! (Thank goodness for our ooo-so-cosy beds – Neil, the manager and our new BFF, even had to CARRY us up to our rooms as we were so tired .. but more about him and his hotel later)
First stop, Art Gallery. You might have picked up on this already, but I love going to libraries, art galleries and museums. Herr Bear isn’t really into it, he’s more the adventure type and trying the local food and of course, bier.
Here are some of our photos from the first day…
State Library of Queensland – reading a classic, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
State Library of Queensland, Queensland Terrace – Tea & Me display
Somewhere between the Art Gallery and Cultural Centre bus station – hopefully we can come back to this place to watch the fireworks for Riverfire that everyone keeps telling us about.
Here’s our new ‘home away from home’ – Watermark Hotel Brisbane – our beautiful room with a view
Time for us teddies to go to bed. We can’t wait to see what else Brisbane has to offer… Guten Nacht und bis bald ♥
