My “adoptive” Australian parents, Jenny and John, were heading to Canberra to visit some friends. There happened to be a Cartier Exhibit... in Canberra? Well I am always up for adventure. So off to Canberra I went…..
It was a beautiful fall day in Canberra.
And the Cartier Exhibit was fun
With the added bonus of seeing some art, including a Jackson Pollack and Monet
And that concludes my exciting trip to Canberra. Seriously. Some friends from Sydney were going to drive out to get me, and I politely suggested that I catch a flight. This is not to say that Canberra is not worth a visit, it just was not a place that I would high on my list. In fact when I arrived back in Sydney it felt like I just flew in from another country.
A funny thing happened when I was flying back to Australia in April. I was on the long route, Chicago- London-Perth-Brisbane. On the London-Perth flight was I was bored, I know shocker, and was having a chat with one of the flight attendants. Some guy comes in the gallery, complaining that his shepard’s pie was cold, like frozen. I was made a face, because seriously who eat PEA’s mid flights? Especially when bacon sarnie’s where an option. He noticed my disdain and was like sorry it’s seriously frozen. The ensuring conversation was funny. Turns out he is a show producer that was going be touring around Australia. A George Michael Tribute, Fast Love. I was intrigued. Turns out the Brisbane show was sold out, but there tickets still available for the Sydney show. And I just happened to be in Sydney that weekend.
Well wasn’t I in for a surprise. I actually really enjoyed it. I say I was surprised because I was just not familiar with his music. It was quite good. If you have the opportunity to attend, I highly recommend it! In fact, go ahead and break out your leather pants. You will not be only one.
April is probably one of my favorite month’s in Australia. If you get a change to visit, I highly recommend considering coming over in late April, after Easter and school holidays!
Until next time!
