Saturday means slow living to us, so we began from breakfast + palms + swimming pool and continued going for a walk: we wanted to reach on foot the heart of the city and from there the Koala Sanctuary Park by bus.
Not ten minutes, not half an hour, but 2 seconds were enough to understand why most of the roofs here in Brisbane are white, and why many houses are white too.
It can be hot.
In these conditions the little distance between Dornoch Terrace and the center of the town doubles in your mind.
Then all of the sudden a fresh wind blows: looks magical!
The air conditioning on the bus is welcome anyway.
And while heading to the Koala Sanctuary Park you are once more surprised ‘cause everyone getting on the bus -adults or young people- greets the driver, who answers, and thank him while getting off, no matter if from the front or the rear door.
And this is a 2 million-people-town (suburbs included) not a village at all!
What should I say about the Koala Sanctuary Park that wasn’t said before?
Probably nothing but THINK BIG.
THINK BIG because it’s a huge place where families can spend the day with the animals: clean, safe, amusing, cultural, surprising, delightful.
THINK BIG because there are many koalas and kangaroos and while the ones sleep or rest on their tree (so cute are they while they eat the leaves!) the others are eager to make friends with you and with children.
THINK BIG because… come on, who can easily -even in Australia- pet a wombat or a kangaroo outside the Park?
That’s not a joke indeed, but a fact they are that big!
… and that’s why I am so happy of this apartment on the 10th floor! 😀
