Have had 2 German backpackers here for two nights. My husband 'picked up' sorry met Lisa when he was in Perth for work and she was working at the hotel. He of course said come and stay if you are in Brisbane. She turned up with a male friend for two nights. They were lovely and I think they enjoyed staying here - especially the free internet! Marcel and I laughed to ourselves when we realised that being 19 they were actually closer in age to our own kids than to us. It was a little like having more kids in the house - only these ones drank beer!! Yes - the backpackers of today are no longer our age!!!
We are off to Australia Zoo tomorrow with the kids and in-laws. I have told the kids to look on the website and to each choose two animals they really want to see. Hopefully it will save the mass "I want to see..... &.......& ......." "But I want to see ....&......&.......&......."
We are staying two nights in the Sunshine Coast hinterland and all having a day off on Monday.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and thinking of those dear family and friends on Cyclone Watch.
Ului is a pretty cool name though!!!
