|We had looked forward to arriving in Broome since leaving Darwin but sadly it didn't live up to expectations. As we rounded the corner from the highway and neared the coast the humidity filled the car and hit us like stepping into a sauna, far worse than Darwin! It was 39 degrees too so we hurriedly found a room and swimming pool to cool off in.
The only highlight was watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean, at Cable Beach. There were some nice looking bars on the front there, but they clearly had their "piss off backpacker" signs out!
We stayed in the centre of town which turned out to be not nearly as exciting as that sounds with very little life happening. There were few shops and almost no bars and restaurants. We ate at our hotel after wandering around the expensive places, and then gave up and went to bed!
A nice place to be with money!
