It was nearly impossible to find a hotel room at a decent price, so me and Juliette decided to take the train from Brisbane for the day trip to Surfers. The backpacker crowd has virtually disappeared here so have the real surfers, perhaps the "too rich for my blood" expectation was the cause
The sands are still golden even under the dark storm clouds, the waves are still rip-curling endlessly, alone most the time. There are still few surf boards around, but nothing like a fantasy of classic Australian beach town, not sure if Surfers was ever a beach town. However, it is safe to officially remove the first word from the city's name, and just call it Paradise.
