It is difficult to know exactly what you are after when it comes to looking at apartments online; will the area be nice? Is there enough natural lighting? How far away from the bus line will we live? Will we be able to make this place into our home? And so on. A lot of the time the pictures in the adverts can be pretty misleading too as the photos may only be "a guideline", aka may not display the apartment you're actually applying for.
Either way me and Alex have already been on a few inspections which has been very inspiring, though also quite exhausting! We have a massive amount of seven other apartments to look at as well on Thursday so I'm thinking we might have to load up with coffee or red bull, as well as take time for a lunch break. if we are going to manage. Exciting time nontheless!!
These pictures are from when we had lunch at a Mexican place in South bank last Monday! It was lovely to have lunch out at my favourite part of town again even though they forgot about our order, the fire alarm went off and we missed out on the lunch + drink deal. Oh well!
Other than that we had a stroll through Fish Lane which is a cute little alley way between West End and South Brisbane which was recently hosting an arts festival! The walls of the alley is now not only lined by little cafes and bars, they are now covered in beautiful futuristic art as well 😍
The rest of the week has been spent around the house in Victoria point/Redland Bay (I still haven't got my head around which suburb we're in?!?!?!) while trying to sort out as many practical things as possible. On the list we have:
-Find apartment 🏰
-Look for furniture💺
-Look for a job 👀
-Open up a common account 💰
-Get some stuff sorted out in Sweden💤
-AND HEAPS MORE
So it was good to have a bit of a break yesterday (oh look at me, already complaining though I live in paradise and don't have to work 😂😉) when Georgia had some friends over and I could hang out with them. We spent the day taking Charlie (the dog) to a dog friendly cafe as well as a dog park, followed up by having fish 'n' chips for lunch and crafting cute bracelets from old books and nail polish ✨
Life aint so bad folks 💃
