On November 15th we flew off to Brisbane in Queensland for a week of well deserved holiday on the Gold Coast. Together with Francois' mum, it was the first time for her to visit this part of Australia. We stayed in an apartment/hotel in Main Beach (just north of Surfers Paradise). According to Thomas the best part of it was, it had 2 swimming pools, one inside and one outside. We used the outside one every day, the kids just loved it. We did day trips almost every day. Places we visited were Sea World, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Springbrook National Park, Tamborine National Park, and of course the places around us. Again a nice break from "normal" life. Below some pictures we took.
