Welcome to Coolangatta!

We're here! The flight was much better than expected. We flew into Brisbane and had a rental minivan waiting for us. Mikey first attempted the driving in the right seat and on the left side of the road. Our rental is awesome. 2 bedroom/2 bathroom 1 block from the beach.

We went grocery shopping at Woolworth's. Things we learned there: crackers are called biscuits, cheese is tasty cheese, rice krispies are rice bubbles, the deli goes by kg not pound, wine is $5 but 24 beers costs $45.

Mikey and Tommy just heard there's a $150 fine for cussing!

We took a sunset stroll to rainbow bay.

We will post again tomorrow!

  7. hahaha...and I quote Noni, "WHAT? $150 for just cussing?? That's just crazy. Florida will conquer that state because you can cuss in Florida all you want and it's FREE!"
