Where I stayed
Some apartment in the Gold Coast
A friend was getting married in Mullambimby, NSW, so I planned my first ever major trip. Up til this point, other people had always done the planning, and I had just gone along for the ride. This time it was all me! I organised an 8 day stay in the Gold Coast before catching a bus down to Mullambimby for the wedding. There wasn't a minute that didn't have something planned. We went to all the fun parks; had a Harley cruise through the mountain range (white-knuckled ride); a dinner boat cruise with a dance show; a ride on an amphibious vehicle; a visit to the Wax Museum and the Believe It Or Not Musuem; plus whatever other adventures we came across. The day of the wedding was the day that terrorists bombed Bali. While waiting for our flight home, I had the worst case of hayfever I've ever had in my entire life. Flying in high altitudes with a stuffed head is absolute torture!! But it was by far my best holiday, even though I needed to come home to rest before going back to work :)
