I am a retired journalist living in Brisbane about one hour's drive from the Gold Coast. I have owned the apartment at Currumbin since 2002. For several years now I have been managing the bookings and cleaning of the unit personally. This gives a chance to meet my guests in person and assist with any special needs. I did a lot of travelling in my 20s and 30s, living and working in the UK, Ireland and Canada. I never tire of meeting travellers today. I love languages (trying to learn Mandarin), the theatre, nature and all creatures great and small.
