Surfers Paradise pt 2

Friday and Saturday

I'm in Bryron Bay right now and its pouring rain. I'm not in the best of moods since I'm missing out on a bunch of fun activities and I'm all alone in my hostel room. So I thought I would catch up on my travels...

Friday

Woke up with my room mates as they got ready to go to Movie World, a Universal Studios like theme park nearby. We said our good byes and I set out to explore the town and beach. It was the first sunny day in a long time and it was finally warm again! I thought that the weather might stay nice so I opted to just go swimming and lay out that day instead of surf... what a mistake. Anyways, I took the short walk from my hostel to the beach and was very please. The beach and water were beautiful, not a speck of trash on the sand. I hung around the beach for about 2 hours, relaxing, sunbathing and reading.

After awhile I headed into the town to check out the shops and get some coffee. It was fun walking around and seeing all the tourist stuff, again, it reminded me a lot of Miami, except here, there were wild parrots flying around.

After getting some dinner I headed back to the hostel to shower and get ready for the night. Every night at Surf 'N' Sun hostel the staff rounds up who wants to go and gets us free entry and a free drink to a certain club. My roomies wanted to pre-game before we went out so I was finally introduced to the GOON. Let me explain the Goon. I had first heard about it when I go to Brisbane. It's a large bag of nasty cheap white wine (box wine), but it is massive. Everyone travelling around OZ gets a bag becausue it's cheap and portable, but also very deadly....

So my roomates Steve, Meg, Chole and I started up a game of Kings Cup... afterwards we were def. ready for the club!

We met up with the rest of our hostel mates downstairs and headed out to the club Vanity. We got a free entry stamp (all the clubs in SP are 15$ or more) and a free drink voucher. When we got inside it was a typical party town club, Top 40 blasting, lazers, girls dancing on stage. It was fun!

After awhile Meg and Steve wanted to head back, but Meg wanted to stay so I chilled out and danced with her. I had heard that the club next door was having ladies night and ladies entered and drank free so Meg and I tried to go get it. We were stopped by some chick saying she was a party hostess and was rounding up girls to go into the club. We headed with her, but intsead of going to the new club we went back into Vanity. It was fine because we got more free drinks and got to sit in the VIP section. At the end of the night Meg and I walked back. She was super hungry so I said we should stop at.... you guessed it, Pie Face. She hadn't been there yet and she LOVEd the pie. We got back to the hostel and hit the hay.

Saturday

We all woke up pretty late after our night out, plus it was raining again. We watched That train movie with Chris Pine and Denz Washington, then I headed back out into town to find some lunch. I grabbed some subway and decided to go read at the beach, even though it was still pretty cold. I was really bummed I didn't go surfing the day before when it was gorgeous, oh well. After reading for about an hour I looked out and watched the extreme surfers out on the big waves,just then I was a water spout. There was a whale out on the horizon breaching and spouting. I tried to get a pic of it when it jumped out of the water, but I just kept getting the splash.

After some coffee I headed back to the hostel where we watched some family guy in the big screen room. That night the hostel was taking part in the "Backpackers Night out" in which you pay 30$ to get into 4 clubs and get free drinks at each club. Meg and Steve were too tired to go out (There's a couple for you) so it was just me and Meg. Around 9 we went down to join our hostel mates in a few drinking games before we left for the party bus. Meg had her eye on Jack (The Irish guy who drove me to the bus stop) so we chatted with him and his friends from Melbourne. We all got on the bus and then were off to Vanity, again. We danced there for a short bit then went to more of a pub place that had a band playing. There, the boys from the hostel staff kept slipping us more free drink vouchers and Jack flirted with Meg some more while I talked to Melbourne boys (cant remember their names). It was off to the next place which was very swanky. Got a fancy drink there and I met my first Americans here! They were from Arizona, so I talked and danced with them for a bit while Meg got friendly with Jack ;)

Finally we went to the last club but by then I was soooooo tired. I wasnt even drunk I just wanted to go to sleep and it really hit me then how much older I was compared to everyone there. We stayed because Meg kept trying to find Jack, whom we later found out had left and come back because she thought he left, and danced for about 2 hours. Uggg. We finally met back up with jack as we were leaving and he walked back with us. Stopped at Pie Face again :) then Meg went with Jack to his room (ooh la la) and I ate my meat pie on our porch. I was sooo tired I fel alseep in my club clothes as soon as my head it the pillow. Good thing I had packed to leave the next day before we left for the club...
