Hey guys, just trying to clear the backlog of posts and photos I have for this here blog. Last month I found myself in Brisbane, which, after the last trip, I vowed never to do again just because it was so tiring, and I didn't really know anyone in Brisbane, and my last SIN-BNE the purser was a bit crazy and some of the crew were a bit 'clique-y' so to speak. But as I was rostered as a First Class crew for the whole of August and still on a Business Class swap system, all my flights were pretty much set in stone. And to my relief, not only were the crew nice (well, the Captain was a bit dodge), and not only did I meet up with a uni friend who was just lovely, but I also took a day trip to Tangalooma, which was much better than window shopping at DJ's for 4 days.

I should also mention that some pics here (those with the timestamp), were actually taken by the FO...

Me with Eugene, the FO on the trip. He kinda reminded me of a real life version of Tux. Hilarious guy, and him and Belinda have now got me addicted to Pandan Cake from Bengawan Solo.

In front of the cruise.

Now I should mention at this point, that the cruise we went on included a trip to the island, whale watching and dolphin feeding. The trip from the Brisbane jetty to Tangalooma was fine, however when we started on the whale watching trip we hit open water and it was quite rocky. Mohommed had mentioned before that he got seasick, but as it turned out I was the one curled up on the bottom deck in the fetal position feeling like crap. So the following pics are what I could get from inside the cabin, which is a pretty good effort considering.

There were quite a few whales spotted, as well as a dugong, sea turtle and dolphins. Shame I couldn't enjoy it that much.

Back on ground (thank goodness), for all the non-aussies, this is a Kookaburra. Their call being quite prominent around sunset.

Gorgeous sunset

And at the end of a long day, we had a very cold (outside temperature was apparently 10 degrees Celcius) swim with the dolphins. Mohommed chickened out though, choosing to stay on the jetty eating a hot dog.

So more posts to follow soon, in the meantime check out this interview on Airboy's site for his ITV series :-) Never really thought I would be interesting enough to be interviewed, nonetheless the design of the site alone is worth clicking the link. Enjoy!
