Surfers Paradise and Melbourne

February 14, 2012 - Melbourne, Australia

Hello All!

We spent 4 days in Surfers Paradise. Our hostel was a converted apartment complex which was really cool. We had 12 people in our hostel and had our own kitchen and living room with a TV! It was so nice to be able to watch tv ... although the channel selection was pretty shocking. But we needed some chilling out time after the busy few weeks we had.

On the first day of surfers we went to the beach and then went for some Sushi sushi ever!! Then we found a free internet place and went back to the hostel . For dinner that night we paid $6 for all you can eat Dominos....I have never seen so much pizza before! We then watched a movie and went to bed early.

The next day we went to a surfing competion in Burleigh head. It was amazing atmosphere and it was really cool to watch professional surfers...even though we had no idea what was going on or any of the lingo but oh well! We then decided it would be a good idea to walk back to Surfers on the beach...bad idea! we walked about 11Ks on the beach during the mid day sun! not cool. Hannah felt a little sun stroke afterwards and immediately threw up her Mcdonalds. haha. That night we went out in was a very tacky place to be honest... wouldn't rush to go back.

The rest of the time we just chilled around the pool in the hostel and with our new friends from the hostel as it was just too hott to go outside!

We arrived in Melbourne yesterday after a 2 hour flight which seemed to go by so fast. We were greeted by a person yelling "Would you look at those foreigners!"... only to turn around and find out that it was Mel and Jen (My sister in laws aunt who we are staying with for a few days). It was so good to see a familar face. We went back to their beautiful house and they showed us around... they have even given us our own rooms with tvs in it...SUCH LUXURY !

We are gonna try to look for an apartment and I have to find a job as we are gonna be in Melbourne until the end of March so fingers crossed everything works out!
