After a lazy Friday night in, we began our weekend with a bike ride and a coffee at French Twist.
Fortunately for my head, but unfortunately for my style, the laws of Queensland require a helmet to be worn at all times while riding a pushbike. No law will stand in the way of me wearing my new hat – so I brought it in a bag and used it to cover up my helmet hair…
he really fits in with his frenchy moustache!!
Although they do a great coffee – the highlight at French twist is the pastries (of course since they are French!), and it took some serious will-power to resist the temptation.

Thankfully, we held out for the eating frenzy that is known as Panyiri, the Greek festival.
As we rode our bikes towards the festival grounds I was thinking about all the delicious food we ate in the Greek Islands, and hoping that the dolmades would be up to scratch! I was not disappointed! It’s funny that freshly made dolmades are almost a different food to the ones you can get in the supermarket (and I can easily polish off a tin straight from the shelf).
It was a fantastic day in the sunshine with good friends and good food!
festival love (please ignore the run in my stockings…)
mmmm honey puffs…
One of the funniest parts of the day was seeing my little brother win his heat in an olive eating competition. Granted, he was up against 3 ladies so he had a pretty good chance, but it was definitely fun for a laugh!
After all the haloumi, baklava and honey puffs we needed a lay down, but we soldiered on and despite not being slightly hungry, we joined a friend at the new Siana to help celebrate his birthday. The food was delicious, and sorry Trangs, but they served some of the best rice paper rolls I have ever had! (I know I am gonna cop it for that one… sorry Jono!).
Sunday was spent lounging around in bed reading, and to top off the international food extravaganza – we ate left over mexican food for lunch and for dinner! Ahh every weekend should be a long weekend…
