Wish you were here...

So - here I am sat in a little internet cafe somewhere in Coolangatta on the Gold Coast, Australia. The weather is a lovely humid 32°C and we’ve been enjoying the break from the cold miserable land back home.

Perth was colder than it usually is at this time of year, although at 22°C I wasn’t complaining. We visited Fremantle, Cottesloe Beach and Scarborough Beach and went swimming, ice skating and shopping. All in all, it was pretty cool although since everyday had been planned out for us by Meeg’s aunt and uncle, we got little time to rest. Thankfully, here on the Gold Coast we have loads of time to ourselves.

We’re currently staying with Meegan’s Dad in a little place called Kirra on the Gold Coast, Queensland. It’s nice and warm and a real surfers town which, since he’s a surfer, is probably no surprise. We’ve really only wandered around the local town so far and been for a swim. The only interesting fact I can think of to blog is that when we go to the supermarket, we lose an hour since we have to cross timezones. Totally bizarre.

We’re probably going surfing tomorrow and then there was talk of going to a theme park. Oh, and something about going to a crazy theme restaurant called Dracula’s… Or maybe we weren’t… Who knows?

Anyhoo - must get on. I think Meeg wants to go shopping and she’s looking at me like I’m taking far too long…

Catch you all soon. :)
