Brisbane is casually emerging as one of the most forward thinking and infrastructure-clad cities to live in Australia with an estimated 1000 people packing their bags and moving here every week. In fact if you take a look around the city, it is currently in a state of construction – apartments, roads, tunnels and bridges being built everywhere. Will it end? Sometimes it feels like it wont but I always hold out hope that there may be an end to this mess someday. Maybe not for a few years yet. :)


Besides the chaos, Brisbane is a green, clean, safe and vibrant city that I and many others are proud to call home. If you want to get out of the city on the weekend, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast or a country drive is easily do-able in one day or an extended stay overnight that will really recharge your batteries.
