A friend told me about someone she knew who had relocated to New Zealand and had made it her family’s goal to devote one day each week to exploring new places. I thought that sounded like a brilliant idea, so we’ve made Monday our day to explore.
The first week we were in our new house we visited Bribie Island, which is just north of us.
It was a rainy day to visit the beach, but that didn’t stop us. We were pretty much the only ones on the beach that day, but that made it even better. The clouds were fantastic and the waves crashed as we walked along the beach.
This Monday we decided to do the opposite of the beach – we visited Brisbane’s cultural centre. Our first stop, after navigating traffic and finding parking, was to see the Brisbane Wheel, walk along South Bank Parklands, have sushi for lunch, and then take in the art at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA).
It was rainy again, so that made it a perfect day to see things indoors. What surprised me most was the fact that the museums are free! Not sure where we plan to go next week, but I’m sure it will be as enjoyable as these first two trips were.
