I spent the bank holiday weekend in Denmark with some friends; heading to the source of the world’s most beautiful men is certainly a big ask. Luckily, we coped.
On a recent trip to the Gold Coast with a girl friend of mine we flew after work on Friday night and checked into the hotel. We waited until the next night for our big night out as we were also planning on doing all three theme parks the same weekend. We hit the first theme park with full force and had so much fun.
That night we were going to join the hostel on their pub crawl. If you haven’t been to Surfers Paradise it is famous for it’s the epic pub crawls. We walked into the hostel bar and I spotted the guy everyone would want! You know the type. So hot you have no chance cause every other girl will be talking to him. Not thinking much about the sex on legs we ordered our drinks and starting talking and making friends with some of the other people on the crawl.
When an old colleague of mine proceeded to set me up on a blind date with a friend of his, all the usual thoughts crossed my mind. I’ve never been one to dislike dating, but nonetheless, an awkwardly silent dinner with an awkward, silent, unattractive man was not something I was keen on.
Interestingly, I was told to meet him at midday (a day date! I like them) in a rather dubious location. At an old airfield close by to the airport, to be precise. Being myself, I was purely perplexed. Did he live out of town in this direction, was this the only convenient location for him? Were we going to do something bizarre like..bungee jump? Horse riding? Strawberry picking? All of those options were vague and rather odd possibilities at the location.
Waking up Christmas morning with a hangover is pretty much standard at home for me. Waking up Christmas morning with a hangover knowing you can walk straight onto the beach and jump into the ocean is amazing. I spent Christmas day on Boracay in the Philippines and to make it more special it was with my Dad – which was a first in almost 15 years!
