Day 2095 - The Gold Coast

Oh what a difference a flight makes!

Channeling my inner Eskimo in Canberra one day; a flight to the sunny Gold Coast the next.
Here I am tapping on the keyboard in the relative warmth of the early morning Gold Coast.  Gold Coastians probably think it's bloody cold (it is winter after all) but this Canberra chick is thinking it's pretty damn divine. 

Why am I travelling yet again?  Cheer Chick Charlie of course. 

Today my trusty sidekick (aka Mum) and I are setting up the Charlie stall at the Aussie Gold International Cheer and Dance Championships which is taking place at the Gold Coast Convention Centre. 

Can't wait!

But for now I will marvel in the morning view while I eat my breakfast on my Aunt's balcony.

Not the best photo (just a quick snap on my phone) but you get the idea.  Morning bliss!
Thank you Gold Coast for being so lovely and giving me a winter reprieve.

  2. I'm in Sydney, bundled up in a doona with the aircon on, seething with jealousy haha! Have a great time!

    1. Bundled up in a doona does have it's appeal - occasionally. As long as you've got a good book or a great chick flick to go with it! And a warm cuppa ...

    1. If I could find a way to get there cheaply I would SOOOO love to come across with Charlie. Not sure my FF points and my free accommodation options will extend that far. I've never been to Perth ....

  4. Oh what a great idea - setting up there! I love that your mum is so supportive. I think mine would be too if I ever got to that point.

    I hope you make some sales this weekend and have a lovely time!

  5. Hope you have a successful visit! It sure would be warmer at the Gold Coast than Canberra! You're just up the road from me in Brisbane. I think it's been pretty darn cold! LOL Though when I get out in the sun for my walks it is lovely! :-)

    1. I can imagine it is cold for you Min. I have been wearing a jacket of a night time. Still in 3/4 jeans and a tee underneath though!

    1. I would have embraced the stalking Em!! Yeah, it did cool considerably overnight. I was in a light jacket both morning and night (and again at 5.30am today). It's actually the perfect temperature to be honest. Not too hot and not too cold. Perfect for this Goldilocks ...
