Memories of Japan

Sean and Geri

I love living internationally. We have met so many people over the years and now have the chance to visit with me in new places. Sean and Geri from Japan are now living in Australia, less than an hour away from where we were staying. Since they had just moved here, they came up to the mountain so they could explore a new part of their new homeland. What a great day of reminiscing and catching up on old friends.

Picturesque valley view from the top of Mt. Tamborine
Coffee n a gorgeous shop in the middle of a nursery and then Roeland room us around to some more beautiful sites including a stunning view over the valley from the top of the hill, the location of a well placed restaurant. We roamed up the gallery walk, our first real touristy bit of walking checking out local products. The glassworks were stunning and the gallery offering aboriginal art was fascinating. I'd seen it before and read about it but actually seeing the work and stories behind designs made it much more interesting. The didgeridoos were phenomenal! Again the designs were intricate and told various stories of life in the outback. If only we had more time...and money!
