Arrived in Surfers on Tues 19th! its really touristy here compared to other parts weve been to, lots of high raise buidlings and shops and restaurents, aparently this is the holiday destination for most people who live in Oz!
We were only meant to stay until Thursday but on the way in our Bus driver tour man said that we should stay the weekend as the Gold Coast 600 was on. Didnt have a clue what it was but it was a yearly racing weekend where they turn the roads in to race tracks and they have bands and fireworks and food ect...So we decided to stay for the weekend and were leaving today on Sunday!
Theres loads of theme parks here in Surfers so we decided to go to a couple with our friend Becky and another girl Lysette and her Boyfriend Craig..We went to Dreamworld which was bigged up to be like Alton towers, It was good but alot of the rides were for kids and only a few big rides! We also had tickets to get into Water World, just a water park next door which we went to on Friday!
Surfers is really well known the clubs and bars here and suprisinly I havnt even really seen them! I had one night out on thursday and went to a few places but it wasnt all that good, the boys and girls who live here think there living in the OC and are all stuck up and arrogant! About 60% of the girls have all got fake boobs, long blonde hair and perfect little figures! So on my Friday I stayed in and played miniture cludo!!!!
Yesterday we went to the racing, watched the cars go round for a bit but my interest in it lasted about half hour....felt sorry for Lysettes boyfriend as he has been dragged shoppin and listening to girl talk for the last 5 days so we thourght we better let him have some man time with cars, beer and half naked pit stop girls walking around! The racing started at 9 and we left about 3 to go and find a shop to buy a bit of achole as it was quite expensive to drink in there and we made out way to the concert area, chilled out and listened to the bands! Didnt have a clue who any of them were as they were 80s bands but the music was still good! The beach boys came on and i knew loads of there songs, the atmosphere was just really good! We finally got home after a long day and what seemed like a 20 mile walk back to the hostel!
Had the worst Hostel experiernce last night, we had to move to another room for the last night which just stunk and was full of French people who woke me up every hour throughout the night to go toilet or decide to start packing there backpack at 5 in the morning! One was snoring so loud as aswell i was sitting up looking for something to throw at him! Were off to Byron Bay in about 4 hours, its meant to be quiet here but nice beaches and places to just chill!!!
