After an incredibly exhausting trip of 26 hours I have finally reached my spontaneous destination: Surfer's Paradise!
If it weren't for an Aussie lad on the plane who told me that I'm better off going southwards directly I would have stayed in Brisbane for a day or two. But I decided to take the 1.5 hours of additional travel and it's absolutely worth it as it turned out. Because I arrived on a Friday, I was able to get started with checking out the social programme of the Surf'n'Sun Beachside Backpackers: Clubnight at a nightclub called vanity. It was a mental night and a good way to get started : )
People are so friendly if you only go open minded and make an effort to get to know someone. For instance when I was on the plane to Singapore I met this girl who lives there, and after we chatted a bit she said she'd be happy to show me around Singapore on my way back home. That's just one of many encounters I have experienced in such a short time. And that's exactly the reason I travel on my own. As a group you always appear quite distant,
A bit of Aussie cliché!
especially if you talk a different language.
The beach here is absolutely mind-blowing. Spent about two hours just strolling along letting the water hit my legs.. So relaxing! It feels great just to do whatever you fancy without any boundaries!
