It had been more than 20 years since I had been to the Gold Coast.
However, with my friends from overseas visiting their parents, it was as good as any time for me to do some visiting of my own.
One of the first things I did with them was to climb the Q1 tower, the tallest (for now) residential tower in Australia.I'd be lying if I said it didn't give some fantastic views of the surrounds.
But I would also be lying if I didn't say that $21 for an elevator ride seems more than a bit steep.
Still.... while I won't be racing up that tower anytime soon, it was still nice to get a glimpse of the Gold Coast in all its glory.
