Mantra Phoenician, Broadbeach, Gold Coast
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

After being asleep for what seemed like two seconds, the alert and then evacuation tones sounded and we had to walk down the stairs. The firies turned up very quickly, investigated, then turned off the alarm. Amelia slept through the whole thing, and Evelyn was calm and relaxed, and ended up going straight back to sleep again once we were back in the apartment.

Now Lui has said that if we go to live in an apartment at the beach, she wants to live on one of the lower floors. This is not so good for the view, but does make walking down the stairs easier. Lui also noted that it was mostly people with kids who evacuated. A lot of other people just stood on their balconies, for shame.

Mark and I had a number of drinks before hitting the hay - lucky we hadn't had any more!

  1. I used my old favourite, the Earlybird filter. This gives a desaturated look, with low contrast and extra orange.
