I posted about this kind of thing before.
Sometimes I get to travel for work and whilst it mostly sucks, it does mean I get to see places for free. I don’t get very long to myself to explore and often I’m not really in the mood to go wandering around on my own, but I do get a flavour of lots of interesting places.
So, this time, my work has sent me to Brisbane, capital city of the state of Queensland.Last year the city was swamped with floods from a cyclone and some very poor decision making in the management of water levels of some key dams at the heads of the rivers that feed the Brisbane River. As a result, lives were lost and a lot of the city was under water. Now though, everything seems to be back to normal and I’m here for the week.
So, for me, travel wouldn’t be travel without some pictures of the actual travelling.
The start of the Wheatbelt – I think this is York, but its hard to tell from the air
Then we started flying over the salt lakes that dot the countryside as we headed out towards remote bushland and ever more desert.
I love the shape of these things! The light patches to the top of the image below are scars on the landscape caused by bushfires – you can sometimes see where a front has been made and access roads created whilst fighting the fire, or perhaps afterwards to create a bigger firebreak
More salt lakes
We flew through some pretty impressive thunderstorms.
Queensland is much greener than Western Australia.
Oh yeah, 21st floor its a room with a view…of a carpark. Living the dream people, living the dream..
Stay tuned – I’ve got a week here, hopefully I can get time to wander around a bit
