What we have been doing is making the next step in our adventure and that means that we have rented a car..yes you are reading A CAR...where is the campervan gone??? It is still with the people who built it for us...after a while in Australia seeing nice beaches, tropical rainforests and the sun we have seen lots and lots of backpackers and decided that this backpacking wasn't made for us...so we are doing it differently :-)
We have been traveling from Noosavilla to Eumundi and from Eumindi we ended up in Coolum (beach)....on the 3. of May. We arrived in a rainy Coolum and decided to search for a room for the night..driving around we spotted a sign (CHEAP ROOMS from $69 a night) and that is exactly what we where looking for. After a room inspection we went for the newer rooms for $79 a night ;-)
The next morning we decided to drive to Byron Bay, this because everybody we met here said you have to go there because it is really beautiful....after a 4.5 hour drive in the Lancer VR we arrived in a rainy Byron Bay and whit nowhere to sleep yet we went on for the search..the prices fluctuated from $110 a night up to $350 a night...almost decided which apartment it would be Lyndsey spotted Apartment Inn, I didn't knew what it was but Lynds saw it the day before on the internet and it looked really nice..so we went in and asked if there was anything available...lucky us there was something available and for a winter-rate, and it is perfect...after sorting our room out we bought something to drink and after that we went out for dinner and had a nice curry :-)
Today the 5th of May we woke up after a good night sleep and saw the sun shining behind the curtains...we went to the beach and after a couple of hours headed to the pub for a beer and had a look around Byron Bay and yes it is as nice as everyone says...It is dark now and I will start dinner after the blog..Lynds is doing some washing and preparing everything for tomorrow..we don't know where we are going but it will be probably around 300 - 400 km nearer to Sydney.
Keep following the blog and you see our new plans...
Cheers for now Lynds and Jeff
