If you're missing some sunshine and warmth then Australia's Gold
Coast is where it is hiding.
I am here until Sunday for the Gold Coast Marathon. The place
sure is buzzing with around 30,000 runners expected to take part in
the variety of distances. But the Gold Coast is always buzzing, the
perfect spot for families, couples or friends with no end of
activities or attractions to keep you entertained. I am more
content to just sit and enjoy the feeling of warmth again, summer
already seems a distant memory.
We flew directly into Coolangatta rather than via Brisbane,
which meant only a 3 hour flight and a short transfer from the
airport. Staying in between Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise, shops,
cafes and beaches are all within an easy stroll.
