Queensland, baby - wahoo!

Some of you may be aware that I'm headed up to Queensland late next month for some spiritual enlightenment through my martial arts school.

Typically when we've gone up there for martial arts, we've ended up sleeping on the floor of the back room in the hall - boys in the carpeted room, girls in the 'corridor' type room between the boys and the toilets.

HOWEVER, as this is not a training weekend as such, and there are a lot of people of all belt levels heading up, we don't 'have' to stay there. And because I'm the senior of my 'group' (one of my senior students, one of my ex students that now lives in Melbourne and a lovely girl that I bullied in to coming that lives in Darwin) I get to arrange it all - which is a good thing, because if you leave it to boys and/or young people then you will be in a backpackers or sharing a king bed between four.

This means that myself and my two boys are planning to stay here in Brisbane for our first night:

And once the girl lands in Brisbane we plan to drive an hour or so north and spend four nights here:

(old people included!)

Although I'd much rather be spending it with The Hun, I'm sure I'll be able to soldier though one night of awesome blogger friends company, two days of spiritual enlightenment, three days of beach lazing and shopping and four nights of good food, good company and good vodka.
