Well, it is coming up to that time of year again. When all the lovers get together and showcase their private life in public... but hey, if you're into it, who am I to judge?
For all the love struck peeps out there I have put together a list of the most romantic spots on the Gold Coast where you can wine and dine like the true champion you are, I have also broken the categories up to cater for every wallet size. There is no need to spend big to show the one you love that you care, it is the effort my dears, the effort is all that matters! Also, spending big can work just as well....
We went chasing waterfalls over the holidays and it was pure heaven! The National Parks in Queensland are so ancient, world heritage listed and magical that they are a must visit if your here in Australia.
Springbrook National Park is on the top of the 'best waterfall's list' for me, being 109m in height and flowing over a stunning basalt lava rock. (remanent of a freaking huge volcano that spanned a total of 80km over 23 million years ago) The flora and fauna along the stunning hike are worth the trek alone, you will feel wrapped in nature from your first step.

So, here are my best bits of Burleigh - let me know if you love them too!
Last week was my partner Zac's birthday. We thought a quick getaway was in order to celebrate, and brainstormed some ideas. We are currently based on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia and Zac has family down the coast in beautiful Nambucca Heads, New South Wales.
Perfect! We decided to google some camper vans and make this more of a glamping trip. To my surprise those Winnebagos you see cruising around are super expensive to hire for a few nights! So, we checked out AirBnb, and alas, we hit gold with Big Bertha Campers here on the Gold Coast.
They have a small, but growing fleet of little camper vans that are fully equipped and ready to go. I am a pretty hard critic, I hate camping and normally this kind of travel is not up my alley...but, I freaking loved it! These little vans are so awesome, comfortable and set up with everything that it didn't feel like I was slumming it. So, we were off to a great start from the moment we got the keys to Betty (The cute name of our...
