Week In-stagram Review #Room753

May 9, 2014 12 Comments »

Each week brings some new scenery and location for me – that’s just the way I like it. If you want to follow where I am real time – then on Friday I will post some of my Instagram photos from the current week. Some weeks I may be traveling somewhere exotic, and some weeks it may be less interesting – but it will give you a peek into my life of perpetual motion.

This week I arrived at #Room753 – a beautiful apartment overlooking the Gold Coast in Queensland Australia.  This isn’t just any apartment – it’s my home for the week and I can’t remember a time where I was so well taken care of and an experience was personalized for me so well.  From putting up family photos in the apartment, to stocking it with my favorite foods and drinks (plus a few Aussie staples).  Plus my week was jam packed with fun activities like surfing, stand up paddle boarding, a hot air balloon ride, opera, Vegas, and koala cuddling.  But most of all I just sat back and enjoyed the amazing views Queensland and the Gold Coast has to offer sipping on coffee and eating Tim Tams.

This part of Australia is a hidden gem – in fact I kind don’t even want to show it to you for fear that it will be overrun with tourists!  But showing you my week is my ‘job’ in the Week In-stagram Review…so here goes…

This is how I woke up this morning at Room753 – #perfection . Only one thing missing – this is one of the few times when a boyfriend may come in handy!


I love the intricate porches of traditional Queenslander homes.

Someone should have warned me that these are addictive!


The sun finally popped out of the clouds once the balloon had landed! A lovely morning floating over Queensland!

One of my favorite (and most emotional) things abt #Room753 is that they placed photos of my family arnd the apartment – like a ‘real’ home for me. I haven’t had family photos up for 7+ yrs! Totally brought tears to my eyes. Love this shot of me and my mom from our travels last year.


We hiked to the top of that peak in the distance today and had lunch. Yes, of course that deserves a glass of champagne! As we walked into @spicerscanopy the bubbly was a welcome site!


Sometimes being lost leads you to wonderful photos!

Hello gorgeous! Isn’t she lovely- @visitgoldcoast . A beautiful morning walk on the beach!



Disclosure:  I was invited to enjoy Queensland by the Queensland Tourism Board and Room753 lodging was provided by Peppers Broadbeach..  However all the opinions expressed her are solely my own!
