13 days left now… Stay 7 – Gold Coast, QLD. The Gold Coast was my first ever SOLO trip away for a week & a half. I headed there to see the various theme parks & just get away from it all. There were some issues at home (dad being injured & loosing his job, mum being diagnosed with cancer) & it was good to get away for a little while to re-charge. I also enjoyed Hamilton Island for a while there… until disaster struck my family (more at Stay 15).
