It is time to leave Brisbane and make my way to Bagni di Lucca.
I have left Brisbane’s blue skies and am currently in foggy Hong Kong waiting for my flight to Helsinki. I am hoping for some snow, before heading off to London and Oxford for a few days.
Here is what I am leaving behind for a while. I think Brisbane is a beautiful city.
It has been a hot, steamy summer so far, which doesn’t really suit me. I prefer cooler weather. The heat does have some compensations…
It is great for the beach.
There are gorgeous flowers everywhere.
Many of the poincianas have finished flowering and enormous seed pods have formed.
Our balcony is teeming with wildlife. Noisy birds wake us up early in the morning, frogs are croaking after the rain and we have had an occasional visit from a possum who feels quite at home in our living room.
When I return to Brisbane it will be winter, my favourite season at home in Australia.
Until then I look forward to sharing my new travels with you.
