Birthday in Brisbane

Gaby and I went to Brisbane to celebrate my birthday. He was working there the previous 3 days and and I was blessed by been given an air ticket to join him there. We stayed at the Gold Coast for the Thursday night and then went to Ben and Beulah Martin, SA friends in Brissie (Brisbane) for the next few days.

We had a great time sightseeing and visiting with the Martins. We have been following each other all over the world. When they were living in the Netherlands they visited us in Spain, then we visited during December in South Africa and now in Australia. We have decided we'll rather keep on seeing each other here in Ozland than to find each other in another continent. Enough is enough!! AND we are both VERY happy here, so why?

From the Hotel, inland Gold Coast
We went to Springbrook Valley which is in a rain forest and to a flower festival in Toowoomba, visited the Botanical Gardens, went to the Glass House Mountains and to a pretty town called Maleny. We didn't have enough time to see more but had good laughs and chats.
