After the Philippines we went a short trip to Thailand for four days and then left to stay 3 weeks in Australia. We started off with a couple of days in Sidney before we were heading off to the Gold Coast to stay at our friend Elin’s house for a couple of weeks.
I get now why Emirates is the top airline company in the world.We stayed at a very nice backpacker hostel, do not remember the name right now though. Our roomies were super messy, but super-duper fun!

I think that the design of the opera house is pretty cool, but (Sorry Australians that are so proud of this building), I was kind of disappointed because I thought it would be a lot bigger. After Sidney we jumped on a plane that took us to Brisbane/Gold Coast. We were going to spend about 2 weeks here at our friend Elin’s house. She’s a very good friend of mine from back home and I hadn’t seen her in a while, so it was super fun to go and visit her. We also got to meet a couple of other friends that we studied with in Norway and we hadn’t seen them for a couple of years, so it was great to see them again! :)
Here in Gold Coast we didn’t do too much. Just relaxing at the beach, went out, ate good food, and super good desserts. We just enjoyed life!
We also got to meet Magnus! A cute guy that went to the same school as us in Norway. Hadn’t seen him either for a couple of years.
LOVE ANIMALS IN AUSTRALIA! Well, Maybe not all of them, but at least these two! :) We also got to experience Byron Bay. We had super fun there and got to learn how to surf. That was awesome! I want to keep doing that when I get to Norway. It’s so so hard, but fun. :)
Our last stop in Australia was the Great Barrier Reef. We booked for a two day sailing trip where we got to see Whitehaven Beach and slept on an island for two nights. It was beautiful there, but the weather was crappy. A little bit sad, but you can’t always have super good weather.
Thank you very much Australia for tons of fun. Our next stop is wonderful Fiji.
