Brisbane to Surfers


So I had Jenny wake me up at 9am so I could get ready to check out. I was sad to leave and super sleepy but it had to be done. I turned in my key, left my bag behind the desk and went to get some coffee. My bus wasnt leaving until 1:30pm so I had some time to kill. Jenny and I went to the internet cafe for awhile, then we hung out at the hostel with Claire for a bit. At 1 I said farewell and headed for my bus stop. It was sad to say good bye, but I was ready to hit the Coast.

I made it to the hostel where the Oz Experience bus pick you up, and it was gloomy and FREEZING! I thought nothing of it because it was winter here, but I heard whispers of it being a record breaking cold. Traveled on the bus for over an hour until we got to Surfers Paradise. So Surfers is like Miami, high rises, beach town with hot night clubs, amusement parks nearby. Looks like it would be a wild time... if it wasnt soooo cold. I called my hostel when I was dropped off at the bus station and they sent a van to come pick me up. I talked to the driver (Who I later hung out with, his name was Jack from Ireland), and he said it was the coldest it has been in that area in almost a decade... great.

I got to the hostel and was shown around. It was a lot smaller than my last hostel, but very cool. Had a pool, large movie room with bean bags where you can request any movie you want, all the rooms were 6 bed or less and had their own bathrooms. No one was in my room when I went in so I went to sleep. I woke up to a guy wearing Stewie PJs from Family guy argunig with another girl in the room. At first I thought they were serious but then I realized they were just teasing each other. The guy was nicknamed Tim Tam and he was from Isreal, and the girl was Chole and she was there from Vancouver with he Boyfriend and best bud from home. We all introduced ourselves and got some food. I opted for a quiet night that night since I was so tired, so me and my roomies watched Due Date and Jackass 3 that night. Good way to recover...
