QUEENSLAND P A R T 1

On Sunday J and I headed off to the Gold Coast for some good old Rest and Relaxation.
He had never been before and it was also our 18 month anniversary on the Monday so we thought it would be a lovely little get away :)

We stayed at Broadbeach, which is where I've always stayed when I went with my family.
I think if we ever go again we'll stay a bit further north, because we werent really near too many restaurants or bars. However Pacific Fair and the beach were only a 2 minute walk away!
We didnt spend much time at the beach because it was too windy. Why put up with being sand blasted when you can laze by the pool under palm trees?

I'm sad to say that on the first night this is all that was in our fridge...

We went and partied on Cavill Ave (new for me because I never did 'Schoolies')
It was ridiculously fun though. Another couple who we are friends with were staying at Surfers so we met up with them and did a bit of a club/pub/bar crawl. Excuse how drunk we all look, iPhone flashes ARE NOT flattering...

Heavennnnnn.

Looking out of the Spa 'Grotto' into the pool...

Monday night we headed out to celebrate our anniversary.
I wore my new by Johnny skirt and Nique singlet.
The high bun was my saviour throughout this holiday, although as you can see no amount of hairspray can hold down my dodgy bit. Grrrrr.

COCKTAILS!!!
Mango Liquor, lime, mint and vodka for meee
and a Mojito for J

and $10-per-plate TAPAS. Ahhhh it was amazing.
Arancini balls, duck spring rolls, Szechwan calamari, prawn things (I cant remember as I dont like Prawns hahaha), spanish pastries
and chorizo skewers. We were in heaven.

The next day we went to Wet n Wild. It was J's first time. I took him on the Tornado first and he nearly died as he didnt know what to expect. Heehee.


Obligatory 'look I'm at Wet n Wild and I'm soooo happpyyyy' shots.


Channeling Pam Anderson. Ha

Frozen Coke could not be more perfect after a hard day of water slide madness.

We could not stop watching this ride. The riders were strapped in, in a lying down position, and then hoisted all the way to the top of the white pole in the background, then they let themselves go and flew through the air attached by cables. It was unbelievable!

Part 2 coming soon! Too many photos for one post :)

  5. HAHAH Krissy no defs not, it was so nice to wade through there when our feet got too hot from running to all the rides. And I know what you mean about being in a bikini, but I just kept telling myself there were people of all different shapes and sizes running about so there was no point feeling self conscious - I was more focused on having fun anyway :) hated that old men kept looking at my chest though. grrr.

    riotersbloc Prawns creep me out! haha I find it so weird to shove a (basically) whole animal in my mouth. Im not a seafood person at all really.

    Aelie you should go again theres so many new rides, its great!

  21. Hey there! I was interested to know if setting up a web site such your own:
    http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=6693414945414754694&postID=7127424543300591581 is difficult to
    do for unskilled people? I have been wanting to develop my
    own blog for a while now but have been turned off because I've always assumed it required tons of work. What do you think? Kudos

  28. I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's equally
    educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found this in my search for something concerning this.
