Car’s Travel Diary

Location: Australia

MapUgh! I was hoping I could get through my trip here without being sick, but it looks like my streak of healthy good luck has been canceled! On Thursday night I could feel myself coming down with the sniffles and by Friday night I had a nasty mix of the coughs, a low temp, and a lovely headache. This delightful sickness is still lingering, but has definitely died down in the last 4 days and has been reduced to an annoying cough that just won't quit, all other symptoms are gone and I am feeling much better than I was. Sam was a trooper and stayed in with me and took care of me. On a positive note, I got him to try his first grilled cheese and tomato soup, and we got through a whole bunch of movies I've been wanting to see including Hitch, 27 dresses, and Good Luck Chuck. Not quite as exciting as hitting the beach, but I had no other choice. Last night we decided to switch things up a bit and we went TO a movie and saw Angels and Demons, which by the way was spectacular, one of the best movies I've seen in a long time, and I recommend it to everyone, especially Dan Brown fans! I did actually manage to make it to the beach one morning during my sickness, though not the best choice because that night I felt terrible, it was a lovely morning and I took some beautiful pictures with my new camera that dad sent me, and I got splashed by a GIGANTIC wave, prob didn't help the sickness any. I put a few pictures up but after this weekend there should be a whole BUNCH of pictures because we're headed to Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise!! We leave Friday mid day and we come back Monday night! The trip is a little pricey for 4 days but I'm doing quite well on my funds and can afford the trip, so I figured...only in Australia once! And Surfer's Paradise is someplace I've always wanted to go! It should be an amazing trip, and I'll be sure to write all about it when I get back!

For now I have to get back to a 2000 word paper I'm trying to finish before we leave!

Miss & Love you all,
