We started the day by visiting Griffith University. Nice to see where Jossan has spent most of her days the last 3 years.
Jossan had not had time to go shopping for a graduation dress. Seems like she has been the same tight schedule as we have before this vacation. We took the car, Jossan drove, she is such a good and safe driver and she is really used to this strange left hand side driving that both NZ and AU continues to stubbornly keep. Why not just switch over to the normal way of driving, I wonder!!!?? It is actually 2015, you know!
Jossan found two dresses, in the very same shop. One was white and one black with some purple on it. So nice dresses, both of them. And I found a pair of trousers, black and white, very comfy and relaxed, the type we call “mysbyxor” in Sweden. Then we continues our shopping tour by shopping shoes for Jörgen. He did not bring any “dressy” shoes so we had to find something for him. Jossan told him that he absolutely NOT could be at the graduation in sneakers or jumpers. We found some cheap, dark blue sailor shoes for him that was perfect. Will be great for him to use and then afterwards he can just throw them away if he feels like it.
Fingers and toes
The shopping went so well so all of a sudden we had one hour left for leisure so then we ran off to a nail shop and got all our nails done. Great feeling to be pampered for approximately 45 minutes each. When the nail fix was done we went to the wine store and bought a bottle of red Australian wine (that was very good, btw) and then we went back home. Home = the hotel! 😉
Changmai thai restaurant
At 17.45 we went ot Changmai thai restaurant, a place where the food is super delicious according to Jossan. And it sure was. So very tasty and we got so much food. When leaving we asked for take away boxes since we had a lot left and we did not want to leave it behind. This restaurant was a BYOW kind of place. This means you can bring your own wine to the restaurant and then they just take a small serving fee for it, nothing more. I do not think we have ANY restaurants like that in Sweden. Everything with alcohol is so super strict in Sweden. You are not allowed to be even the slightest flexible when it comes to such a simple thing as having just a glass or two of wine. Silly, if you ask me.
