Give me a break!

06 Sep 2016

Can we ask… Are you tired? Run down? Feel chained to the desk, or the wheel, or the housework?

We hear all about giving yourself some “me time” all of the time. Let’s face it - sometimes it’s just blooming impossible. Between the jobs, the home, the family, the children, the driving, the cleaning, the bills… on and on and on… it is a hard ask for most of us.


Our society’s kind of fatigue is a strange thing. It isn’t remedied by sleep alone. It delivers grumpy drivers and shouty mums. It makes teenagers want to curl up in a ball and never venture outside and adults crave lonely barren deserted places or adventures in extremes. It’s all about getting away from the routine, being able to stare at a horizon and just not do anything. Having time, feeling comfortable and de-stressing.

Now there is absolutely nothing wrong with a far away place to rest and recoup for a while. In fact, it sounds rather delicious! But when you’ve only got a few days and limited funds, you don’t want to waste precious time in an airport or on an aeroplane.

Let’s just say we have our ear to the ground and what we hear is a collective plea - a little cry from our people around town… can someone PLEASE ‘Give Me A Break’! Somewhere close. Somewhere easy.

For the sake of a little creativity, a teeny bit of effort… You could WIN a lovely little getaway in Surfers Paradise.
