Travelsonabike2 Australia This Day 10th-May-2012

This week’s Travelsonabike2 bicycle touring on this day post comes from Australia on the 10th-May-2012. I’m in Australia again this week and have reached my journey’s end, or at least my original finish.

Thursday 10th-May-2012. In Brisbane.

I put my bike in for a much-needed service this morning. Then, it was off to the ABC studios for a radio interview. Zoe (my cousin) had emailed the station, wondering if they’d be interested in my story. They were. Phil Smith was interviewing me for his weekly show “The Sunday Spin,” which is broadcast across Australia and South Asia. (listen to the interview here)

ABC had just moved to new studios, which were rather plush. Zoe and I were met at the reception by one of the girls from the show. And once we’d signed the visitor’s book, we were given our passes. The girl then took us through to the studio. It was a little daunting to sit in front of a huge microphone and all the different mixing machines around. It was a bit different from my last radio interview for Wave FM. Just before I left the UK, that was recorded outside sitting in the sun. Phil soon put me at ease, and I think the interview went reasonably well.

Errol and Zoe took me into Brisbane City this evening to meet up with the rest of my Australian family for a meal, which I really enjoyed.
