We arrived in Brisbane at 7pm local time on Tuesday night. After picking up some duty free and finally getting through passport control, customs and baggage reclaim we were met by Michael’s mum, brothers and best friend Simon. It was all rather overwhelming but everyone was so lovely and I felt at ease almost immediately.
20 minutes later we arrived at Helen’s ‘unit’ (apartment) and the Aussie lingo already started to baffle me! A quiet night in with everyone was just what we needed and we livened up after the beers began to flow in true Aussie style.
The let lag had set in but we stayed awake till an appropriate bed time to try and reduce its grasp on us. As I slept most of the way on the last leg of the journey I didn’t suffer to badly but Michael…oh dear.
