I’ve taken to walking about Brisbane aimlessly – with absolutely no agenda, other than to enjoy my beautiful city – and I’ve been finding myself falling in love with the seedy underbelly, the rusted corners and peeling paint of my little city. We may not be the most exciting, most fashionable, nor the most jaw-droppingly-beautiful city in Australia, but I know that I would never be able to move away from here. Despite my love of travel, I know I would never be able to live anywhere else. To raise a family anywhere else. I know that Brisbane is home.

I’ve been walking in the same way as I did
And missing out the cracks in the pavement
And tutting my heel and strutting my feet

“Is there anything I can do for you dear? Is there anyone I could call?
No, and thank you, please madam, I ain’t lost, just wandering”

Round my hometown, memories are fresh
Round my hometown, ooh, the people I’ve met

Are the wonders of my world, are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of this world, are the wonders and now

I like it in the city when the air is so thick and opaque
I love it to see everybody in short skirts, shorts and shades

I like it in the city when two worlds collide
You get the people and the government
Everybody taking different sides

    i know u work night shifts so what do u do..during the day? do u sleep or do u go drink as much coffee as i think you do?

    1. I probably drink as much coffee as you think I do. /Wink
      And I also wander about quite a lot, wishing I were more artistic so I could sketch all the loveliness that I see.

  2. That’s nice, to find such beauty and appreciation in your town.

    I still live in the same area since I was very young, but my perspective, on other hand, is a little different from your’s. It’s a combination of the suburbs and the city. It’s normal. Not much to see. But the worse of all, the restaurants and stores are generally made up of chains and corporate crap. I definitely don’t want to live here for the rest of my life! Lol

    I went to Brissy a looong time ago (even before we immigrated to Aus)
    Need to revisit soon! (I did go to Cairns last year though)
