Mooloolaba - up to August 25

Non-hostel accommodation

rain 14 °C

Greetings from the Sunshine Coast - hope the people who named it kept their receipt for the plaque.

Because for the last few days (and nights) it has CHUCKED IT DOWN.

And I'm from England, so I'm not exactly a stranger to rain. But this never seemed to stop!

It started well when we arrived- sunshine and a welcoming host. We have been staying with a lovely lady called Betty who knows Fay's mum.

She was incredibly warm and welcoming, as was the weather to begin with.

We took a stroll around the marina and then sunbathed on the beach listening to the waves crash as we soaked up some rays.

We took a trip to Noosa on our second day here - we had been planning to stay there, but I think a day trip was enough to see everything we wanted to.

The rest of the time has been spent in shopping malls, at Betty's beautiful house and in the cinema (watching new inbetweeners film- awesome film!) because it has been raining lots.

Ironically today (the day we leave) it has been sunny and Fay and I went kayaking around the waterways which weave between the streets here. Saw a very different view point.
It was also a good chance to get some exercise - I haven't kayaked since I was about ten, and it really works your arms.

The weather forecast for the east coast isn't great for the next few weeks, so in a change of plan, we are now heading to Darwin.

It's about 32 there and full of crocs. So think it will be a real change of pace to what we are used to. Know two friends from Hull (brothers) who are living there currently, so will probably be in touch with them at some point.

We plan to find our first jobs in Darwin, so It will be strange to be in a place more than a few days! We will be there probably a month - eek!

Already booked the first week's hostel- which will be the longest time we've stayed somewhere since Sydney. May actually be able to......dum dum dum.......UNPACK. ( you appreciate the small things when travelling).

Love n hugs to everyone. Will see you in the north (Darwin that is, not Yorkshire just yet).

Em xxxx

Ps- special shout out to my friend Kate, who is about to move house! Good luck sweetheart x
