Another reason we're travelling, is Brisbane will experience major disruptions between the 15th and 16th November with the hosting of the G20 Summit in town. The bigwigs of the top twenty economic countries descend on Brisbane with a lot of them bringing their own security forces with them. Naturally that also attracts the rat-bags from all around the world coming to demonstrate against Obama, Putin, Cameron, Abbott and the others. Then there are the ones who want to save the whales, the forests, the planet. gay rights, women's rights and poverty. Not that I personally have anything against any of those things. A lot of these protesters will battle it out with the police forces in the streets. There'll be water canons, tear gas, you name it.
So, we're off to miss it all.
