Day 1: March 23, 2014

Mary offered to take us to the airport of Gold Coast which was extremely kind of her considering it was Sunday (she would be normally sleeping till late) and the fact that she was willing to drive for nearly 3 hours (1,5 …
It is great to be a kid!! As soon as it started raining this afternoon, the boys took off their clothes and went for a run in the rain.
I didn't have quite the same appreciation for the rain today. I left the car's windows down during the earlier downpour...and then had to drive around with my bottom in a puddle. And then go around a few shops with wet pants...at least Ryan thought it was ...

Rugby rules the sports world here with Australian rules football and field hockey also present on the sports pages of the local newspapers. Swimming, tennis and cricket facilities/coverage are less evident than in Australia.

Great service at front desk. Fabulous view from corner room on 36th floor (2 bedroom with harbour view.) Shower was small, didn't drain well and a bit leaky, but everything else was great. Well equipped with appliances and spotlessly clean. Location in heart of CBD was ideal. Highly recommended.
