“Mrs Boss… Mrs Boss..” one of my favourite words in “Australia” movie. Nullah, the aborigines boy acted very well in this movie. The movie makes me understand the aborigines and history of Australia. It’s always my habit to understand more about the destination I plan to visit. Hence, this movie helped me.
My wife and I flew from Singapore into Gold Coast just as spring was settling across Queensland, this no. 1 vacation destination for Aussies also one of the favourite destination for many asian like me.
After a 7 hour flight, we arrived around 7.30am, it is a very simple and convenient airport. There are a few car rental booths, tourist information counter and a few cafes. An airport is an airport, we can’t expect an airport to be like a shopping mall. I always love to see airport to be as simple as possible.
We bought a travel card at tourist booth and depart to our apartment by bus. Gold Coast is a tourist friendly place, the bus we took at outside arrival hall are very reasonable price ($7) and the bus has luggage racks, and so, we don’t have any problems about our luggages.
The view and the sound of ocean wave was incredible.
We stayed in an apartment, which is just 2 minutes walking distance from the beach and about 10 minutes walking distance to the surfers paradise. We were on the 9th floor and our ocean view apartment was spacious with a balcony. The apartment is equipped with technically everything; kitchen, utensils, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, iron board and so on. Bus stop to the theme parks is also nearby. Although not like 4-5 star hotels, it is cozy and homely.
Every day morning we were greeted by a wonderful sunrise.
