More Chilling on Noosa Beach
Sunday 27th February 2011 – Noosa, Australia
It was another glorious morning here in Noosa, and like every morning when the sun is shining, all I wanted to do was to be out and about, enjoying the warmth the sun brings. It doesn’t really matter too much where abouts in the world I am, but if the sun is shining, it always makes me feel happy. In Noosa though, it’s just that little bit more special.
One of the girls in the hostel had a friend come and visit her, and he had been in the hostel for a day or two now, and had hired a car for the duration of his short stay in Australia. This opened up the door to a few more possibilities, and we took advantage of this right away by driving to ‘Farmer’s Market’. The market was smaller than I had hoped, and it lacked character to be honest, but the food stall selling genuine German sausages caught my friends eye, being as she is from Germany. The temptation was too great for her, and she had to buy one. It was a particularly delicious sausage for sure, much better than back home for me.
With not a lot to see in the market, it wasn’t long before we all were a little bored, and so we made our way back to the car. We drove around a few places nearby, but the heat was getting a little unbearable in a car with no air conditioning. We shortly returned to the hostel, and my friend had to say goodbye to her friend who was leaving today. As the day was still young, Kristina and I spent the afternoon at the Main Beach, topping up our tans and cooling off in the sea. It was a nice afternoon, and was topped off nicely with a big ice cream from the nearby place. It had to be one of the finest ice creams I have ever tasted, and certainly went down well.
Back at the hostel, I had the pleasure of meeting my two new room mates. I was pleased to learn they were two very attractive Danish girls. What was more pleasing was the fact they were genuinely nice girls, with lots of stories to tell of places I have yet to venture. I always like hearing about places I know I will visit someday, and only makes the desire to go there that much greater, which is never a bad thing.
I went with Kristina to the local supermarket for some food that we decided to cook for our evening meal, and it turned out to be a nice meal in the end. I was quite proud of myself, and others were looking on jealously, which made me feel even better. I guess I can cook when I put my mind to it, and it feels better cooking for two than just cooking for myself. The pleasing part was that Kristina didn’t have any ill feeling afterwards.
Most of the hostel sat in front of the screen for most of the evening, engrossed by a trio of films, one being ‘Paranormal Activity 2’. It was funny to see how affected people were by the film, yet I had a different opinion. I wish I could be more scared of films like this, but unless the film is a weird, Japanese production, it fails to move me in any way. Japanese films have a way of getting into my head like none other, whereas the Americanised movies of nowadays fail to deliver on this front. They are more about the jumping-out-at-you than anything else, in my opinion anyway.
This being said, it was an entertaining evening.
