So here I am, after a 19 hour coach journey back in Brisbane, at a different hostel to the previous times. Although it is apparently the sister hostel of the first one I stayed in! But it's a lot nicer, it's quieter and friendlier as it's smaller. I also happened to meet a Canadian couple who I'd met when I was in Manly the last time I was in Brisbane, which was nice as we could swap email addresses etc.
I've been searching for jobs since Thursday but so far don't seem to be having much luck. Although I phoned Bob Kearsey, one of the guys who took me to the Inverell races back in November and we're meeting for lunch tomorrow and he said maybe I could work with him. So fingers crossed I may have a job!
