Its the middle of summer, and as far as i have experienced, its similar, but more intense, than Barcelona´s summer heat. Its humid and burning. and Tiffany loves it... Of course, Albert and Jett will be swooning by the pool sipping icy beer and licking icy poles, respectively.
Tiffany was 8 when she moved to the Gold Coast and 14 when she moved back to Melbourne. Since then she has often been back to the golden beaches to visit her family. Jett Edan was born on the Gold Coast in the Southport hospital in 1999.
It has a distinct beach culture. They are out doorsy people with more garden pride than the typical Norwegian ´house´ pride. (forgive my blatant generalisations)
The Gold Coast is a top tourist location. Queensland´s motto is ´beautiful one day, perfect the next´. We have the wide expanse of the Pacific ocean with long golden beaches (ie the GOLD coast), and not more than 30 minutes away, we have the hinterland where all the scandies pretend they are back where they came from... its quite charming and much cooler up there. Not far out back, we have the DESERT. Brisbane is 45 minutes away by car. Everything is relatively close, considering the long distances between capitals in Australia.
But this is nothing, because after settling it a little bit in Australia, we are seriously planning to acquire a van and drive around for some months.
This, anyway, will be part of another website!
