"Climbing" in cages in the rainforest.
A lot has happened in the last week here in Surfers Paradise. Ive been on a cruise, a Party cruise that is, been at bbqs & jobhunting and gotten a job as well.
On Saturday we went on a Partycruise (www.partycruise.com.au) and had a blast. There a lot of Aussies on board to our surprise and to have fun with Aussies is a total different story than to have fun with other travelers. We drank a lot and it turned out to be a very long night. We actually had to wait almost 2 hours for a cab, and this was a regular Saturday night. I cant imagine how it is on a holiday…
A few days later I went on a job hunt in Surfers. My plan was to go to as many places as I could in one day, drop of my resumes and hope for the best. What happened was a little different. At the third place I was asked to wait and the Manager came and interviewed me and asked when I could start. I was lucky. They were looking for people at the front office right there right at that moment. The hotel

is Australis Sovereign, (www.australishotels.com.au).
I worked on Thursday and going back today, and tomorrow and doing an 40 hour week next week. So that turned out well. I guess I found where Ill do my practical training for school.
Later that day we went with Lotte, Lea & Jive to the girls’ workbuddy’s, Jason’s, home for a dinnerparty. It was pretty lame for what I expected but the food was good. The next day Jason took us to the Lamington National Park, where we drove up the Green Mountains and went for a walk on the Tree top Walk. It was pretty fun and they had signs we could climb on the trees. What the signs didn’t say was that the place would be really really crowded with people and the trees had caged latters to climb. The view though was pretty nice and the rainforest is always to walk in. So many birds and animals to see all the time.
We also got to feed some birds. You put seeds where ever you wanted the birds to land and they’d fly to you and eat on you. Too bad there were so many people there, probably because of
Night out at Surfers
Here we are at a Korean restaurant drinking Korean beer and whisky. From the left: Lea, Lotte, Jive & me.
the national holiday Anzac day, because the birds were well fed by the time we got there. It was fun though.
Im pretty busy the next two weeks with work, which seemed to be pretty much the same as back home with a little differences of course, but Ill try to find a room to rent in Surfers and live a little closer to “life” than I do right now.
