Queensland 2 - First day in Gold Coast, take it easy honey!

The four of us woke up to the phone ringing from the reception, telling us that we were supposed to check out thirty minutes ago. We got ready as quickly as we could and checked out of Oaks apartment with massive headache. Thank heaven for the Panadol Rapid that Olga got us, we were all chatty and chirpy again when we were in the limousine on our way to Gold Coast. Even though I haven't touched any painkiller for years, I had to succumbed to it that morning.

Gold Coast was very touristy, as it was 13 years ago when I visited with my family. The apartment we stayed at, Q1, was conveniently located at Surfers Paradise. So the aim of this trip was to relax, unwind and rejuvenate. With that in mind, we went shopping for fresh food so we can make nutritional breakfast and be healthy. Right, Olga made us some vegetarian pasta for dinner and we all decided that we should just stay in and have a good rest after a bottle of wine and some punch although it was Saturday. We all agreed.So the three (older) girls went to bed while I was chilling in the living room reading my book. The alcoholic in me ended up finishing three quarter of a bottle of vodka by myself, bleh... I was making this vodka punch that Charm and I created recently and they were absolutely divine. Tasted so good you wouldn't realize how potent that can be. That night I decided to go to bed at about 2am when the words in my books started jumping around...

To be continued...

I Just wanted to add that Gotreception.com (http://www.gotreception.com) is a great resource for finding out where reception problems are most likely to occur.
