Girlie Goldie Weekend

The girls at work had come up with a plan to go away for a weekend some time ago, and that weekend happened to be this one. Having found reasonable flights to the Gold Coast, this was our destination, on Tiger Air!

Rushing to the airport is crazy end of the week traffic, we amazingly managed to all get there, be checked in, and under our hand luggage allowances, ready for our two days in the sun, away from winter.

Piling into a limo from airport to Gold Coast strip, Nikki, Bree, Alissa, Bec and I took in the glamorous idea of being away and anonymous for a few days, stretching out on the leather seats and being stared at from outside the tainted windows.

Checking into our hotel at Surfers, being the Mantra Legends, just under the Q1 building, we soon made our way for dinner just across the road for a mixture of Italian and Turkish meals. Back to our interlocking rooms for get-ready-drinks, we then walked down to Cavill Avenue to sample what the night life had to offer a group of girls...a dodgy night out, as it turned out! Bar hopping, many drinks, witness to a punch up on the street, someone being tended to by paramedics, and much dancing! A crazy carry on, indeed!

The next day after a sleep in, we all wondered down to Cavill Avenue in the light of day for brunch, before parking ourselves poolside in the sunshine. A swim, and a few cocktails later, we were ready to get ready for another night out, and found dinner at Melbas.

After some great meals, and a free birthday cake for Bec's non-birthday (hey, the bar staff went along with it!), we made our way to the bar end of the establishment, and danced the rest of the night. The 5 of us had such a ball, just mucking about together!

Yum Cha for brunch the next morning, there was more sunning by the pool, with Alissa, Nikki and I walking along the beach and taking in the Sunday market. All too soon, our weekend away was over, and we taxied out to the airport, promising to do it again soon.
