Checking In At: Gold Coast, Queensland…

I’ve moved on from Brisbane for now… But i’m not done with it yet don’t you worry. I’ll be back there just next week!

Until then every morning I wake up and I get to look outside and see this spectacular view…. Please… don’t be too jealous…

I’ve been incredibly lucky with the weather so far, Queensland’s winter is kicking England’s summer’s YouKnowWhat! Today was the first bit of rain and cloud since I arrived on Thursday last week, which means i’ve had lots of sun to spend my days walking around enjoying the sights in my shorts and sunnies. Here’s to you Vitamin D!

Can anyone who’s been to the Gold Coast recommend a trip in the surrounding areas? I’d love to hear about it!

I finally have some very exciting developments on my Australian Adventure!! Meet Emma (above photo), my lovely friend who has decided to take some time out of her busy schedule working in TV Land and will be joining me in Australia for a month in November!!

Now in case you haven’t worked it out yet, deciding where to visit and when is proving difficult for me! So far I land in Brisbane at the end of July, and will reside in that area for a little while exploring. Then I don’t really have any plans. I know of hundreds of places that I would like to visit. I just don’t know in what order yet…

But Emma has kicked my bum into gear and for November we have a whirlwind tour ahead of us!! SO, where do we plan to go?? First stop Sydney (Can anyone really travel all the way to Australia and not visit Sydney?!). Then back to Brisbane and Gold Coast where I will be able to show off my favourite finds. To Byron Bay for a surf lesson (sandy faceplants anyone?). Then up the coastline of Queensland, featuring: Noosa National Park, Fraser Island, Rockhampton, the Great Barrier Reef and finishing with Whitsunday Islands. … I am overwhelmed with just the thought of how much natural beauty I am going to experience on this trip!

Only just over 12 weeks until my flight departs!! The time is flying by…

By the way.. do you like the photo of Emma? Emma is a singer and this photo is from a shoot I did of her to make an album cover. We had to hand stitch the flowers to invisible thread to make them hang. It looked so beautiful. As does Emma!
