So I am now in Surfers Paradise! I can see why, the waves are HUGE! It is a city with a load of skyscrapers & designer shops!
Last Day at BLUESFEST During my time in Byron Bay, I have pretty much been living off Subway! So after my Subway breakfast we headed over to Belongi Fields for my 5th Blues-filled day! We went straight to the Mojo tent to see Newton Faulkner, who played a fantastic set & I even got to meet him after the set in the CD tent! KT Tunstall played a good set & to my suprise I knew most of the songs! The Black Crowes were INCREDIBLE!! So much so that I headed for the CD store, again, and bought 2 of their albums! Later on we left the Crossroads tent & went to the Mojo to see the last of 'John Fogerty's set' which was really good & a bit of fun, he even played some Status Quo! Black Crowes were better though!!!
Day 17 YES I AM KEEPING MY BLUESFEST WRISTBAND ON!!! Checked out of the hostel at 10.00am & the Oz bus leaves at 3.00pm! After my Subway Breakfast I headed down to Wicked Travel to sort my time left in oz! Managed to book all of my trips & busses to mission beach where I am doing a '14ft' Sky Dive (I know - I think they mean 14,000ft). Booked Alice Springs, Whitsundays, Magnetic Island & Fraiser Island! Just a couple of nights accomodation & a plane ticket left to book! yess!
The bus from Byron to Surfers only took 2hrs, however, I gained an hour comming out of NSW & into Queensland as out CRAZY DRIVER quite LOUDLY told us! ha! Lots of Co&Ca, Xavier Rudd & A7X on the bus! Surfers Paradise is awsome! I get to have Starbucks for the first time since leaving Sydney!! + there are loads ot theme parks & shops here too, so you will hear about that next time!
Heading to Brisbane for the Weekend for a game of OZZY RULES FOOTBALL!
Love & Miss You All
