There's always a river somewhere to paddle and this week it was the Brisbane River, the longest river in south east Queensland that traipses 344km from Mount Stanley to Moreton Bay. As always the company of good friends was appreciated on the stretch from Colleges Crossing down to Joseph Brady Park near the Moggill ferry. This is the last tidal reach of the river before the Crosby weir and features high banks that are well timbered, some cattle grazing and in all a wonderful perspective on this river system that is so vital, and influential, in the lives of those in and around Brisbane….#guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetaustralia #wanderlust #explore #travelphotography #visitedplanet #iloveaustralia #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #brisbaneanyday #brisbane #brisbaneriver #canoeing #collegescrossing #kayaking #worldtraveller #traveleverywhere #exploretheworld #traveltheworld #opentheworld #instatravel #fromwhereyoudratherbe #wonderful_places #beyourbucketlist #betheadventure #lonelyplanettraveller #natgeotravel #igtravel – from Instagram

"The bicycle, the bicycle surely, should always be the vehicle of novelists and poets." ~ Christopher Morley.If that were the case then delightful Bologna is filled with both. And actually this city has one of Italy's highest quality of life indices and the third highest GDP in the country. It's also home to the University of Bologna that was founded in 1088, making it the oldest continuing operating degree-granting university in the world! Anyway I wouldn't mind riding a bike here – what about you?! …From the archives: June 2014. …#guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetitaly #bicycle #bologna #emiliaromagna #bicycles #ilovebicycles #wanderlust #explore #travelphotography #visitedplanet #iloveitaly #worldtraveller #traveleverywhere #exploretheworld #traveltheworld #opentheworld #instatravel #fromwhereyoudratherbe #wonderful_places #beyourbucketlist #betheadventure #lonelyplanettraveller #natgeotravel #igtravel – from Instagram

Here's another flashback to this week in January 2011 after Brisbane was hit by its worst natural disaster in 40 years. Brisbane's "Mud Army", 25,000 volunteers strong, took to the streets with brooms and shovels, to lend a hand in a mass clean-up operation. In our streets in Auchenflower we had people coming for up to two weeks. Most were from Brisbane but some came from the Gold Coast or Sydney and their tireless efforts, generosity and teamwork inspired us to keep going each day. Everyday heroes. Love you Brisbane….#qldfloods #floods #queensland #brisbane #brisbanefloods #mudarmy #thisisqueensland #brisbaneanyday #queenslandanyday #loveyoubrisbane – from Instagram

A flashback to this week in January 2011 when my parent's home in Auchenflower sat for several days in 4.67m of water as a result of flooding across the state of Queensland. These floods impacted three quarters of council areas in the state and claimed 38 lives. It was a terrible but beautiful time when the state seemed backed up against repeated natural disasters but we rallied to then premier Anna Bligh's call that "we are the ones that get knocked down but get up again."…#qldfloods #brisbanefloods #thisiqueensland #australia #queensland #floods #flooding#guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetaustralia #wanderlust #explore #travelphotography #visitedplanet #worldtraveller #traveleverywhere #exploretheworld #traveltheworld #opentheworld #instatravel #fromwhereyoudratherbe #wonderful_places #beyourbucketlist #betheadventure #lonelyplanettraveller #natgeotravel #igtravel – from Instagram
