Goodbye Greece, G'day Gold Coast!!
Some of you may remember a post some time ago talking about our planned trip to Greece in September 2009. Well, after various searches for airfares, car hire, accommodation in Athens etc etc we have decided that it is just not going to happen. We would be looking at $13 000 for the airfares alone!!!!! My big kids have been bugging me for YEARS to go to the Gold Coast but I have resisted with every fibre of my being. It is quite commercialised, and EVERYONE in Tassie goes there on holidays!! The big attraction for the kids are the four theme parks which are located there. Anyway, after deciding that Greece was out of our reach at the moment, DH and I discussed the options and decided that we could do a couple of weeks in Queensland (including all the theme parks) for a much more reasonable sum. telling the kids was fun - they were so excited!!! I am sure they will have a blast, and I must admit, I am sort of looking forward to it now as well - the accommodation I have booked looks fab, and it is right on the beach. I may even get a tan!! Mental note- must buy some bathers....
