Jan 22nd Brisbane - My Final Australian destination
Today I was to reach my final destination in Australia, Brisbane.
I had decided last night that after all the cycling I had done in Australia the only way to reach my last stop was by bike, it was to far to cycle all the way in the humid heat so planned to ride 10km to the nearest train station and take a train to about 45km South of Brisbane and cycle the rest.
I nearly tore up by greyhound bus ticket that I had booked but thankfully didn’t as after about 2km of cycling I got another broken spoke I had no other option then to get the bike back to the Greyhound station and get on my originally booked bus, I made it to the bus station just in time thankful that the spoke hadn’t broke further away leaving me stranded, but extremely disappointed that I would not be able to ride into Brisbane.
Got into Brisbane by 3pm found a bike shop to fix my spoke, and went to my Hostel which was a very nice one with air conditioned rooms and a fantastic rooftop terrace where this nice shot way taken from.
