hi all, we are currnetly in cooloongatta which is on the gold coast, just south of the crazy surfers paradise.It so beautiful here, the sea is massive and the beaches are full of fine white, soft sand. We arrived yesterday and checked into the hostel which is nice, there is a massive kitchen to cookj in and a pool! Loads of chilling areas, and it is really quite - mix of age groups of people. Decided to go tot he supermarket and try cooking last night, bought some chicken and rice, and when we tried to cook it, we failed - miserably.the plan was to use a bbq but we couldtn find a nice one, so tried to grill them in this tiny toaster lke grill - it took forever, so after trying to eat the chicken once and deciding it was still wobbly we threw it in a frying pan to finish off, but we coudlnt get the idea of raw chicken out of our head, so didnt have much tea!!!

Weather is excellent, spent a couple of hours on the beach yesterday, earlier on and was entertained by new life guard recruits in training - oooo the tight little shorts running past - mumand beck, you should have been there to appreciate it with me - chris wasnt too impressed, apart from the one lady lifeguard.

today, we had a mornign walk along the bay, and found some really big waves with loads of surfers on them - luke you woudl love it. the scenery is excellent, and the sea is still massive. Planning to go shpopping for powere adapter otherwise no more piccies.

Heading to byron bay on saturday and then have a rough plan to get to sydney.

Enjoy the pics.
