Mid 2011 two of our good friends, another couple from our Ireland days, moved to Brisbane. Now that we're practically neighbours again, we thought it would be a good idea to catch up some time. K (the lady half of the pair) suggested we meet up in Sydney instead of Brisbane for two reasons -- 1. There's not that much to do in Brisbane, and 2. So I can knock that off my ailing 2011 bucket list -- perfect!
