    Gold Coast, Mara and Hotels

    December 21, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌬 28 °C

    Morgens haben wir uns von Jake und Brian verabschiedet, echt super Typen mit Lachgarantie 😂, und sind noch zum Cape byron gefahren.
    Nun geht's ab nach Surfers Paradise, wir haben uns ganz in der Nähe ein Airbnb bei Tammy eingemietet. Die Wohnung ist 1a, nicht zu vergleichen mit der in Christchurch 🤪

    Auf dem Weg dorthin haben wir Ingas alte schulfreundin Mara getroffen, die vor 8 Jahren mach Australien ausgewandert ist. Nun ab hoch die Gold Coast über die Straßen direkt am Wasser. Kite Surfer die über die Wellen jumpen beobachtet (Inga steht ja voll drauf, vllt auch mal ne Idee für mich 🤔) und übertrieben viele Hotels gesehen.

    Leider wurde es draußen ziemlich düster, so wurde nach kurzem Stop bei Aldi, eingecheckt und der Abend mit Pasta und Salat beendet.

    Week 4

    January 30 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Hi guys ♥️

    Today it’s one month since we left Switzerland. Are you missing us? 😇
    Of course we are missing every single one. However, we are reallyyyyy enjoying our time here and thinking about staying here👀😂. Even though we didn’t see even the half of those things we have planned to visit, we already fell in love with australia. The people here are veeery kind and always in a good mood. Everything is very well organized and super clean!

    This week was nothing new on our schedule. The weather is finally better and we really enjoyed it ☀ 🏝. We had to plan some of our travels for once we finished school.
    On Thursday we had a friendingsession at school. It‘s kind of a speeddating, it was funny and good to improve our english but verry noisy.
    We started our Thursday evening at floridagarden, this is a park where you can do BBQ and are allowed to drink outside. We had a lot of fun and went clubbing the whole night as we skept school on Friday. The reason why, we‘ll tell you in the next post.

    Love and miss you.
    xoxo Meret&Fendi ♥️

    p.s: the guy in the video is Colin, one of our schoolmates who had to correct the homework’s infront of the whole class. 👀😂

    Weekend Week 7

    February 23 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 26 °C

    Our Friday night was quite calm. We picked up something from the Chinese restaurant 🥡🍱 and went to Sara. We had a lovely girls night with lot of talks followed by a bath in her whirlpool.
    On Saturday we decided to sleep in as we were not getting much sleep since we have been here😴.
    We made ourself ready and went to our first Rugby Game! We really looked forward to the Game as Bryan (our Teacher) told us a lot about it and set our expectations very high. First we watched the women’s game which was very interesting. It was a special game as the best of the NRL’s Indigenous Australian and Mãori players played against each other. The Australian Indigenous All-Stars (IAS)are the Aboriginal Australians and the Mãori are the indigenous from New Zealand.

    You might have heard about the video of the nine-year-old boy, Quaden Bayles, which has gone viral. Quaden was filmed while crying his eyes out because he was getting bullied for being dwarfish.
    He had been invited by the entire IAS-Team. Quaden led out the league team in front of thousands of cheering fans! This moment gave us goosebumps!
    After that the players perfomed the traditional War Cry and Haka ahead of the game.
    Proudly they represented their cultures.
    The atmosphere was stunning!
    Unfortunately the IAS lost.
    However, we really enjoyed whatching the game and of course the players... as you can see they weren’t that bad👀🔥.
    Eventhough we were pretty exhausted from the whole day, we decided to go out as there was an afterparty. It was probably one of the best parties we have had since we got here. As it was an afterparty from the game most of the people were locals respectively, Aborigines.
    We had a lot of fun and finally we had the chance to interact with other people instead of just Swiss guys.
    Due to the bad weather, on Sunday we went to the shopping mall to look for a festival outfit as we are going to the Ultra Festival next weekend 🥳 Unfortunately we didn‘t find anything so we spent the rest of our Sunday evening poking around the internet searching for an outfit.

    Love and miss you!
    xoxo Meret&Fendi ♥️

    Week 8

    February 28 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Hi loves ♥️

    Week 8 is over!
    Our outfits for the festival arrived and fortunately they fit us!🙌🏾
    Due to Elviras birthday we organized a surprise party for her and went to the florida garden on thursday evening to toast her birthday at midnight.
    As we drunk way to much we decided to skip school on friday and cured our hangover on the beach followed by a yummie dinner at an italian restaurant.
    On Saturday we got up early to go to the burleigh head beach but as soon as we arrived it began to rain. Not even our singing made the sun shine 😩.
    In the evening we went to broad beach which is 20 minutes away from us. As usual we pre drunk at the BBQ place after that we went to a techno club which was recommended to us. Even though the music was very good the club was almost empty so we decided to go back to surfers and went there partying. We had seen and experienced a lot of funny things that evening; as singing with a street musician, dancing in a country club and much more 🎉😂.
    We enjoyed our last sunday in Surfers on the beach!

    We are starting to get excited about our exam! Our speaking test will already be on Friday for this reason we decided to speak only in english from now on! We are doing pretty well...🤙🏽
    However, after our speaking we have to catch the flight to Sydney and hopefully we can celebrate our well passed exam.

    Love and miss you♥️
    xoxo Fendi&Meret

    Verwandtschaftsbesuch

    February 21, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Wenn man schon mal da ist, sollte man auch entfernte Verwandte besuchen. Hugo ist der Onkel des Mannes meiner Cousine und er ist super nett. Hat mich abgeholt, mir ein Zimmer für die nächsten Nächte gerichtet und für mich den Pool sauber gemacht. Und die Vögel um sein Haus rum sind richtig zahm. Einfach gemütlich hier. Und die Vögel ums Haus werden jeden Tag brav gefüttert. Somit hat man ständig nette Gesänge hier und eine bunte Vielfalt an Vögeln.Read more

    Weiter geht's an der East Coast

    May 23, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Nach Byron Bay ging es mit dem Bus weiter an die Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise. Es wird auch das Miami von Australien genannt. Coole Stadt mit Strand aber zwei Tage haben gereicht 😄 Das Hostel war aber echt cool, man hat dort einzelne Kabinen mit Betten und etwas mehr Privatsphäre. In der Hostelbar war abends immer was los und es waren zwei Tage Spaß, Entspannung und Sonnenschein ☀ Es gab dort jeden Tag Frühstück for free und Pool mit Jacuzzi 😄😎Read more

    Tschüss ByronBay

    May 28, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    Hello together,

    So die letzten Tage in ByronBay waren echt wunderschön... ich kann echt verstehen warum alle sagen es sei einer der schönsten Orte in Australien, ist eine ganz kleiner Ort ( habe zwar nicht viel davon gesehen) weil wir 80% der Zeit am Strand waren.
    Sonntag morgen sind Lara und ich um 5:00 aufgestanden und haben uns um 6:30 den wunderschönen Sonnenaufgang am Leuchtturms geschaut, auf dem 40 minütigen Rückweg am Strand entlang bei 20 grad haben wir dann auch noch 45 AUD Dollar gefunden.💸
    Die haben wir dann in 2 Surfbretter für den ganzen Tag investiert und sind dann um 9:00 nach einem leckerem Frühstück wieder zum Strand gegangen und lagen den ganzen Tag bis abends um 7 in der Sonne und waren surfen.🏄‍♂️🏖☀️
    Montag haben wir dann eine Kajak Tour mit Delfinen 🐬gemacht, war echt Mega cool und hatten eine Menge Spaß. 😂 Haben auch Schildkröten 🐢 gesehen ... irgendwann haben wir dann eine kleine Pause gemacht und sind mit den Kajaks in die Bucht gesurft, das war echt mega geil mit den großen Wellen 🌊 allerdings war es dann nicht mehr so einfach aus der Bucht heraus zukommen, aber auch das haben wir dann geschafft. 🚣🏼‍♀️
    Danach sind wir dann noch an den Strand gegangen und haben den Rest des Tages dort verbracht abends, ist Lara dann weiter gefahren und ich habe neue deutsche Jungs kennengelernt mit denen ich dann den Abend verbracht habe.🍺
    Heute morgen bin ich dann wieder hoch an die GoldCoast ( ist und bleibt einfach wunderschön 😍) bleibe hier jetzt paar Tage, habe auch schon wieder neue Leute kennengelernt 👌🏽 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 🇨🇭 🇩🇪
    Gehen jetzt feiern 🥳

    Surfers Paradise is a town

    November 12, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Yes Surfers Paradise is a town. Beat place for surfing and for holiday. Along a 5 km beach named gold coast you will find plenty of hotels in high buildings of more than 50 floors. Difficult to believe it. You must see it. Australian are pretty proud about this local paradise.
    It's just 1 hour bus ride from Brisbane and invite you to spend lazy days at the beach.
    I had my lazy day and a short cruise

    I regret not visiting Palm beach and Miami. Hihi
