Hello World!

The Aussies love their Gold Coast to death. We fell in love with it too! Our week-long trip was an explosion of activities… We caught and munched on crabs; climbed uber tall buildings; petted kangaroos; traipsed through mysterious rainforests … Let the images tell our story… No, we did not visit any theme parks, the Gold Coast’s signature attraction… Or maybe we did as the Gold Coast is one big multi-dimensional theme park.
