    Violent owner

    The owner of Blue Tongue is a violent man with zero compassion. He allows the house to fall into unsanitary conditions and if you cross him, he will scream in your face and kick you out. Do not give this man your money.

    ... of course. We landed in Brisbane international Airport at 12.40am today (Sunday) and caught a taxi home. It felt wrong but right at the same time, being on the left side of the road with the driver on the right. As soon as we got home we had toast and were too wired to go straight to bed. We all showered, it was soooo nice after travelling for over 25 hours, and went to bed. Alex fell straight to bed but it took Adam and I longer ...

    ... many questions and 3 different people checking things on you, but after all the bureaucracy we got out to the lobby and there she was waiting for us.

    My mom and her instantly hugged and both of them got a little bit emotional. I guess it was a wide mix of feelings after such a long time. Then it was time for us. After hugs and kisses we went to the parking lot and started to drive towards Brisbane, to Mary’s house.

    Noosa Heads is to die for, we thought it was really lovely place, beautiful beach and lagoon, lovely homes and gardens. So much to do, do you want to walk on the promenade, or ...

    ... the shops for a few hours and stopped off at Coles on the way back to hostel, I'm such a numpty though as I brought bread, porridge and milk for breakfast but we get a free breakfast at the hostel!
