Brisbane...Lonely Planet suggests it may be Australia's most underrated cities, and we tend to agree!

... waiting for our connecting flight. Our flight over the Pacific was good with very little turbulence and very little travel sickness. Most were able to catch a few hours of sleep on the plane and those that couldn't are making up for it on the floor and in chairs now. The first 24 hours have seen the following go missing...a music folder, passport, camera and of course one SLC travel bag.

To add fuel to the fire - we had this crazy New Zealand woman trying to find her bags and she was making the situation worse - she tells us she is going to the Amazon - hopefully not to our lodge!!! She would make good piranha bait!!! In the end - we have come to Quito minus 5 bags ...
