Watching Brisbane on the news recently, seeing some of my favorite places completely covered in muddy water, just made me so sad. My heart goes out to Brisbane. In honor of this awesome city, here is a little photo journey of my time there.
These birds were like the pigeons of Brisbane, they were roaming around anywhere people ate food outside. I'm used to pigeons, but these guys are huge! And their beaks! I looked it up, they're Australian White Ibis. We also saw two kookaburra right in the same spot.
Willem Dafoe. We were so hungry, and though we were a little out of our element (it was pretty fancy), I thought I remembered he was vegan, so we went for it. I didn't take pictures of the avocado rolls I got, but I did take these.
Sono is located at 202 Edward Street.
The Forest is Brisbane's answer to the organic hippie vegan establishment. Though we're not hippies in the slightest, we were more in our element in this downtown, casual place. It was more in our price range too. I didn't take food pics there because we met up with friends and I got a little shy. I had an organic and really good burger and salad. I loved being able to order absolutely anything on the menu!
