It’s getting cold in Melbourne. Granted, “cold” in Melbourne means not quite the same thing as it means in Sweden, or even in London. I feel like a weakling when I call home and I complain about how freezing it is, at sixteen degrees celsius – in both Sweden and the UK that counts as a mild summer day. I thought I’d be perfectly okay with the colder weather, but truth be told I’ve got so used to the temperatures that now I feel like I’m halfway to being able to break off my frozen extremities. Luckily, I have a friend who was born in June, and she is not down for a winter birthday, so she decided to round up some of her girls and go to the Gold Coast!
This was the view from our hotel room! We were all pretty shocked at how nice it was – we got a groupon pretty cheap, so we were expecting like one room with two bunk beds and no space for anything, but we got a really nice flat!
We mostly went out partying at night and did not much at all really during the day. It was a lot colder than we had hoped! We had all packed like fifteen bikinis each, but ended up going to the beach only once. We didn’t even go for a swim in the sea! Despite all that, it was really nice to just get away for a bit, and I feel super refreshed and ready for the rest of the week!
