Initially I thought 'yeah i could definitely live here' especially when the taxi driver told us that winter temperatures don't dip below 20 degrees.
However that means summer is very hot. Very. It was 40 degrees one day, so we just sat by the pool
On the second day we headed for Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast. Stunning beaches, but the one day I got burnt. And putting my jeans on top of sunburn the next day for a ten hour flight to LA was unpleasant!
A very smoky Brisbane - the smoke was from bush fires on an island just off the coast!
