a lil kirkman family reunion holiday diary


A few weeks ago my Dad come to Qld from central Nsw and my brother came all the over from England for a little visit. It was the first time in about 2 years that the 3 of us had been together.

We headed down too the gold coast for a week and had typical father and children randomness and happy fun times. We spent alot of the time just chilling on the beach, which i missed so much, surfing and swimming at main beach, the spit, broadbeach and the spit.

 We spent a fun filled day at dreamworld. The max time we waited for a ride was 20 minutes which was amazing. Id reccomend going on the tower of terror to start the day to get your addrenaline pumping. Also the buzzsaw and the big drop, which is the worlds second tallest drop ride. I dont normally get affraid of heights but this one honestly made me a bit queezy. Theres also a really cool motorbike rollercoaster which is good for all petrol heads alike. If like me you love tigers and they are one of your favourite animals, go check out tiger island and see the impressive tiger show. I always get sceptical over those types of things but the living area is pretty nice with plenty of things too climb, space, and a big watering hole, and you can tell that the trainers really care for the animals so i give it a thumbs up. Also check out the other animals they have like the kangaroos and wallabies. Come on look at the little guy, hes so freakin cute i wanted too take him home with me.

We spent an afternoon up mt tamborine and checked out some glow worms. Its like and up close galaxy. Theres also loads of cool shops that are a bit artsy and hippy along with an amazing crystal shop in gallery walk. Theres also plently of walks through the rain forest too waterfalls and amazing views.

We checked out a mandatory rugby league game as the titans were playing at home. The cbus stadium is really nice, although we were sat on the side with the sun glaring in our face which annoying but it was a really good intense game.

We finished the week off with the weekend at the queensland race way for the aussie super bikes as my dad is a mechanic for team bc performance. They did pretty well with the 3 300 riders continuously bringing in top 8 places. The youngest team member Kyle did awsm with 1st place and 2nd place wins. Particularly on day 2 after crashing and dislocating his shoulder on saturday.

Then sad times came when dad had to go back home for work and i got stuck with my brother for a week. It was pretty nice too be honest, like really nice just too hang out with him. He's still an annoying little shit and i still boss him around like crazy but we are more like friends now. He even would slip a sneaky kiss on my  forhead which kind of creeped me out at first. Awww he loves me really.

So yeah it was a really a lovely week. Especially as my brother is due too go in the army in a few weeks and who knows when the next time i see him will be. The next time i see dad will hopefully be for the Australia v Argentina rugby championship game here in Qld. Aww yeah.
