Christmas in Australia - BBQ on the beach!

Surfers Paradise, Australia

With Karl in Sydney with Pam, Dan and Sean traveled to Surfers Paradise for Christmas...

When we turned up at our new hostel, Sean was greeted with two massive boxes of Christmas pressies sent by his mum, dad and sister. In total there were 36 presents including lots of chocolate, alcohol and mince pies! These together with his secret Santa presents meant he was the envy of the hostel. Our room contained two bunk beds one of these equipped with a Japanese couple who never seemed to leave the room, instead preferring to watch cartoons all day and night. They appeared to speak very little English until Dan was caught by them trying to steal their room key (which turned up two weeks later in Sean's pocket)!

We tried our best to make it feel Christmassy by decorating our room with tinsel (which had been attached to our backpacks for the last week), making a Christmas tree and put all the presents around it. On Christmas Day, Sean was awoken at 9am by an excited Dan Davo holding two bottles of beer saying 'let's open the presents!'. So, Dan opened his 6 presents and Sean opened his 36. After a few early morning beers we rocked up at the beach around mid-day for a BBQ. With our toys (bubble makers, cap guns, etc.) and beer we had a great day. Sean even managed to get a tan... (DD)
