definitely we needed it to wake up, haha.

After a long night we ended up going to bed early today, so we tried to sleep as much as possible. Actually I couldn't do so, since it was warm and was thinking we had to check out by 10am. Yes, I know how early! But they waited almost an hour for us :P

Noosa was nice, but we were thinking about keeping on exploring the area. We decided to go for breakfast and there decide our next movement. We left the car parked at the hostel and walked to the restaurants / club area. It looked so quiet during the day, haha. Yesterday it was very busy, especially for a Monday night. We found a nice cafe and they had an interesting offer for breakfast. That was great for the rest of the group, since I'm not a breakfast person. I was just looking for something fresh and they had an interesting variety of juices with funny names.

ok, that's the way
I couldn't help it having a nice cup of coffee too. Now, we all were getting awake and started to discuss about where to go next, mmm. Day was a bit sunny but not too much, better hurry up if we wanted to catch some sun at the beach. There we could decide if we'd stay or in which direction to drive.

We went back to the hostel and left. At the cafe we asked the girl for directions in order to reach the beach and it turned to be we were so close, hahaha. What a tourist! hahaha! It didn't take us longer than 5 min to arrive. First problem, finding a parking spot. Noosa was very popular and the place was packed, but we were lucky to find one next to a complex called "French Quarter". At that point I had a flashback from New Orleans, awwww. I want to go back there! Mmm, it turned a bit cloudy but it wasn't that bad.

action shot!
At least I thought so until I felt a drop, oh oh. Would it rain now? Nooooo.

A couple of drops wouldn't stop us. Finally arrived to the beach just to find it very crowded and we were looking for a secret and empty beach... guess we chose the wrong day... oh well, it was a good thing we had a car and were able to drive somewhere else. Noosa was a small city, but the area near the beach was a bit trendy with nice cafes and shops, classy!

We ended up at Noosa Park. We found a parking spot and decided to walk around the nature. We were following a path enjoying the park when we decided to go through another one. This took us to a beach, a hidden and almost secret one. Great! That was the place we were looking for. A quiet spot to sit down, chat and relax enjoying a wonderful landscape.

perfect! a hidden beach!
It was so fun a bird followed us the whole way. I guess it wanted to become our dinner, haha.

It was getting windy and we decided to go back to the car and start driving away. Mmm, were we in a rush? No! So let's stay enjoying Noosa. We went to the other direction and found a very nice spot. Gorgeous houses in front of the water, nice yachts and most important peace! The place was just for us. So quiet and peaceful, ahhhh! But it was getting late and we didn't want to be in a hurry like the night before. Also driving at night wasn't fun for Kumar.

We started to drive north, thinking about going to the Sunshine Coast. The landscape was changing, we just saw some farms and fields. We even saw signs saying "Ginger Factory" and other one "Strawberry Fields". Mmm, that seemed to be interesting, but we could stop there in our way back to Gold Coast, better to keep on driving in order to find accommodation wherever we ended up going.  Then Kumar took a turn. Where are we going? He found interesting the name Coluum and that would be our next destination. We didn't know what we'd find there, the only thing we were sure about is that we would have fun wherever we went. :)
