*Sigh*...how time flies.
I can't believe it's only been a week since we've gone to the Gold Coast. When we arrived back in Sydney a week ago, we dove back into our normal lives right away. Our short but well-spent vacation before Christmas was an eye opener to me. Seeing the life in Gold Coast for just a few days made me appreciate the more laid-back and simple life (if Sydney is laid-back, more so the Gold Coast). I will share my thoughts on this on another time, in a different entry.
Surfer's Paradise (Gold Coast, Australia) is one of the most iconic beaches in the world - as recognised by both the Discovery Channel and Lonely Planet. Three kilometers of golden beach on the doorstep of the Pacific Ocean, it is the perfect place to chill out & soak up some rays, go for a swim, catch a wave, stroll or jog, or just kick back & people watch.
There was dessert cafe called Wendy's near the beach so I grabbed a Raspberry Smoothie to hydrate us and cool us down as we stay out in the sun.

The weather was gorgeous (thank God!) as we stayed out in the sun for more than two hours. After we hung out at the beach, we found a Korean BBQ restaurant nearby where we had lunch.
More of our Gold Coast adventures in the coming weeks.
Hope your Wednesday was fun!
