Moving On Up to the West Side of the CBD
Brisbane CBD is situated on a peninsula and is surrounded on three side by the Brisbane River. The M3 Pacific Motorway runs along the west side of the CBD.
Brisbane CBD – Old and New
Brisbane’s history is reflected in the architecture of the CBD. The contrast of old and new buildings standing next to each other, delight and stimulate our architectural senses.
October in Canada means red and yellow leaves on the trees. October in Australia gives us these marvelous glossy opalescent colors of peach and pink and well, red too.
The Trans Canada Highway Into the Rockies
The Trans Canada Highway stretches all across Canada. Today we are traveling from Calgary to Castle Mountain junction, with a stop to look at the striking Castle Mountain.
Through the Canadian Rocky Mountains
The Canadian Rocky Mountains are immense, awe inspiring, and beautiful. This will be the first post of several in which I will highlight my numerous travels through the mountains.
Our Everyday Australian Life
We have an everyday life in Brisbane, Australia which includes a home, friends, work, worship, hobbies, food, and play.
These are what really tell the story about our Australia. It is our every day Australia life, but it isn’t the same as our every day Canadian Life.
On this blog we want to share with you our unique experience of living in Australia as felt by these two Canadians.
A Look Inside our canadian world
Our unique Canadian world focuses on the western provinces of Alberta and British Columbia, with the spectacular Rocky Mountains in between.
In the same way, the Pacific Ocean is a physical border between Australia and Canada with Canada on its eastern shore and Australia on the west. Ocean neighbors, so to speak. Many Australians that we have met are very interested in Canada, in spite of being concerned about the cold and the bears. In turn, we Canadians are fascinated with Australia, although we are afraid of their sharks and spiders and snakes.
Ed and I have called both of these diverse countries “home”.
Here we proudly share a taste of our Canadian home.
