Brisbane Flashback

It’s not my first time in Brisbane. I’ve been before, twelve years ago. It was my first time in Australia. For 6 amazing weeks, my cousin Bertrand and I, both sixteen at the time, visited the country and our (large) down-under family. An Aussie cousin, Colin, took us on a roadtrip from Sydney to Brisbane. While I clearly remember of the roadtrip, sleeping in motels, stopping in Surfer’s Paradise and such adventures, my memory of Brisbane itself is a lot more fuzzy. So fuzzy in fact that for a few days, being in Brisbane again, I struggled to recognize anything. That’s until I went for a ride on the free ferry service on the Brisbane river.
