Seeing red over a trip to the Gold Coast

I was seeing red when I boarded my flight to the Gold Coast. No, Alan Joyce didn't casually end my holiday before it began. I was staring at the red, second degree sunburn all down my friend’s back and legs.

I was staring at the red, second degree sunburn all down my friend’s back and legs. I was thinking: "I really hope this doesn’t ruin my holiday." Emily and I had been planning a holiday to the Gold Coast for the past year. We wanted to revisit the theme parks and re-live memories from our childhood holidays. Sunburn was never part of the plan.

    Seawater on sunburn? Ouch. Brings back memories of crusty red backs on the hot vinyl seats of the old morris minor.

    Only thing that works for sunburn is lots of cool fresh water – and time. If blisters are involved then look forward to multiple peelings as well.
