I spent last weekend in Brisbane with Jeann and we got up to lots of shenanigans. On top of eating a lot of amazing food, we visited the Lifeline Bookfest and played a lot of board games.
Jeann picked me up from the airport on Friday and we headed straight to the Lifeline Bookfest where Jeann had early access in order to create a promotional vlog for the Bookfest. You can check out the video here:
We spent ages at the Bookfest and then went back the next day (opening day of the Bookfest) to browse again and purchase the titles that we wanted. The Lifeline Bookfest is the biggest second-hand book sale in Australia and it was amazing to the halls filled with rows and rows of books. I had a good browse and ended up picking up an original hardcover of The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness and a 2016 edition of The Shifting Fog by Kate Morton, which looked like it had been unread.
Besides the Bookfest, Jeann and I also spent an entire afternoon filming booktube videos that you will see on the Happy Indulgence youtube channel in the upcoming weeks. I think my performance has definitely improved since the last time!
We also ate a lot and made sure that we went to brunch everyday. In addition, we had yumcha, sushi, Korean fried chicken and delicious Malaysian. Here are a selection of food pictures from the trip:
And of course we couldn’t forget about our other coblogger, Aila, so we hung out via video chat and caught up on all the bookish things that we’ve missed in the past few months. And we managed to get a sneaky group photo!
All in all, it was a wonderful weekend and I can’t wait to see Jeann again later this year!
