We are now staying at "Surf and Sun Backpackers on the Beach" hostel in Surfers Paradise. On the day we arrived, we went out to the local club, for a completely free meal and beer (no catch), but didnt drink much after that as we was both still tired from Byron! While we was out, we bumped into Keith and Logan (yet again), so the next day ,we went down to the beach with them and on the night we all went to Ripleys Believe It Or Not Museum, which was full of wierd and bizzare things like the tallest man that ever lived and the man with the longest nose (who actually came from Yorkshire). We got an early night, as yesterday we went to Wet and Wild water park with Keith and Logan. We nearly didn't end up going there, as on the way loads of people changed from the minibus onto a big coach, but we stayed on the bus and ended up at another park! We was suppossed to get on the coach too, but didnt hear the man say! He Had to take us to the water park his self! Ha! The water park was great, some really big slides there! There was a really good one called the Tornado, which we all went on loads. It was like giant cement mixer and throw you down a steep slide in a rubber dingy, then when you came out the bottom throw you right up the sides of it from one side to the other!
We have booked our Newzeland pass today, which sounds so much fun and there are loads of adventures to come in a whole other country! It looks great!
Tonight is the backpackers big night out, where 8 hostels all go out together and get free drinks and stuff! Should be good!
Considering this is the first place we have visited in Queensland, you can really tell the difference already. The sea is a lot bluer and warmer and the temp outside is hotter! The beach is really long and white, with lots of built up buildings, not what we expected of Surferss at all, but we like it a lot and have stayed longer then we originally thought we would. It is a very good holiday place here and kind of reminds you of America.
Anyway, going now, its hot outside! Promise to put Pics on as soon as we find a computer that enables us to do so!
Talk soon everyone, Loz and Nadz xxx
