A few days without internet means a lack of updates so having a quick catch up session.
Last Wednesday we finally departed the city of Brisbane heading south down the east coast. Finally beginning the 'travelling' part of the journey. Where were we heading? A town called Surfers Paradise. First impressions, Blackpool down under. This was somewhat amplified by the fact that it's off-season. We had 2 nights and 2 days in the town. What was there to do? Sun, surf and sand.
The initial plan for day 1 of going to Seaworld was scrapped when it was realised the place was less of an aquatic zoo and more of a theme park. The new plan? Chill out on the beach in the sparatic sun until tea time. Lovely. Finally retreating back to the room when the wind was more frequent than the sun. The next day was lovely - blue sky and plenty of warmth. So laden with all our belongings after checking out, we moved back to the beach to wait for our afternoon bus.
So, all in all, a tough town to live in..well, as long as there's no rain.
