    I think the Australians are generally one of the nicest groups of people on earth... always friendly and seemingly laidback. But man, until you come to Gold Coast, you'd probably never truly experienced hospitality at its best! And everyone here is soooo laid back. Coming from a busy and always on-the-go kind of environment, holidaying in Gold Coast is indeed nothing short of splendid! Remember, just arm yourself with a mega-watt smile.... no need to bring loads of $$$$... oh, and pack along ALL your sexy bikinis and for the more modest amongst us (ahem!), swimming costumes. :-)

    This is Paradise on Earth, my friends!

    P.S. And that's me in the pic below having a ball of a time here in MOVIE WORLD with my favorite Loony Tunes cartoon character, Bugs Bunny!
