home sweet home
A lot of people that live in Brisbane tend to think it’s not a great place to live and that there isn’t much on offer. But I don’t think that’s true. I’ve just returned home after travelling to London, Mykonos, LA and Las Vegas (and I’ve been to many other cities previously) and I couldn’t be happier to be home. Whilst I loved many of the places I visited, each place only offered one or two things that I think are important to making somewhere a great place to live, whereas Brisbane truly offers a bit of everything, the things that are really important (well to me anyway).
A good selection of restaurants, bars, shops, markets, nightlife, galleries (we do have them here, you just have to know where to look), nice weather (where it’s not too cold in winter and not too hot in summer), close proximity to some of the best places in the world (beaches, rainforests, cities etc), a relaxed lifestyle (where it’s not a day to day struggle to do simple things), space (we are really spoilt and should cherish it more), choices (where we aren’t restricted to too few or too many options – yeah we don’t have a Zara on every corner but is that really a bad thing – we don’t want to all dress the same do we? But we have so many choices for crucial things, like coffee!), a unique culture (where we have our own style that isn’t mass produced), and we have freedom (the most important thing).
We really have it good here everyone, and we can make it an even better place by embracing it. Let me know what you love about Brisbane?
I hope these images inspire you …
