It is our 3rd day in Surfers Paradise and we have nothing much to report. The distance from Brisbane is only 100 km. Surfers Paradise is (one of the) Blankenberge of the Gold Coast. But: there is nothing wrong with Blankenberge.

We go on a wild goose chase for a room. What do we want? Cheap, dodgy and with free wireless. We drive through the city and find hundreds of hotels, motels, B & B's, hostels. None is advertising wireless. We saw the Comfort Inn has free wireless but the price was 150$, which we do not want to pay for a simple motel room. At the end of Surfers Paradise is Mermaid Beach and we decide to turn around there, when we see the Comfort Inn. Can't hurt to ask. The nice lady offers us the room for 95. We check the wireless, working, strong and fast: SOLD for 3 nights. The motel is the standard American style, has a swimming pool and a nice garden, why is there nobody here?

It is 3 km from the city but walking distance to pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and the beach. We recommend it!

Priorities: Hard Rock Café, of course! I have an Aussie burger, would you believe? It has lots of onions and beetroot. Afterwards, we walk along the beach and in the pub street. Dr T orders a bottle of nice bubbles and we sit on a terrace.

We catch up with our games/stories/mails, Dr T even goes for a swim: water 19 degrees: not for me! The mighty hunter caught a chicken and brings lunch hoe, while I enjoy my office in the garden. I have long chats with my brother and talk to Springmuis.

And, and, and: we are booked for Belgium!!! To all who missed us a tiny little bit: put on your party shoes: here we come: we arrive in Brussels the 21st of August, (late at night) and leave the 28th of October. You will get fed up with us!

First, we go to Thailand: Koh Samui for 2 weeks. After 2 more night here. We plan on going to a Warner Brother place tomorrow. IF I can get hubby from behind his internet.

Are you singing with me? Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Annie, happy birthday to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
