Today we spent over 4 hours getting to our next destination…Brisbane. We arrived and checked into our hotel called the Emporium (www.emporiumhotel.com.au) which is the 5 star hotel we are getting for free thanks to the super nice guy we met in the S Korea airport. His credit of $800 was going to expire before he could get to the hotel so gave it to us!
The hotel itself was a very nice boutique type accommodation. Everything was very new and decorated beautifully. It had a restaurant with live music and was in the same complex as some other shops and restaurants. We walked into our room to candles lit, a bottle of champagne on ice and rose petals in the form of a heart on the bed. We were tired from the long day of driving so it was great to have a nice room to relax in, the bathroom even had a jacuzzi tub and a washer and dryer.
We walked around the complex outside checking out the area and looking for dinner. We found a noodle place and ordered food to go. We brought it back to our room and watched a movie before bed.
