What a way to end it all! Cairns is amazing! Staying at Gillighans, possibly the greatest hostel ever. Pool, bar, club, gym, restaurant, free meals and great location. To top it all off today we went to the Great Barrier Reef. The sky was blue and it was HOT! Started with a casual scuba dive, meeting half the cast of Finding Nemo (luckily no Bruce), then snorkelled around the reefs taking pics with my waterproof disposable, hence why I had to resort to the stellar photo of chloe for this cover. Then we took a smaller boat to paradise. This was a sandy hill, no bigger than the length of two buses, in the middle of the ocean. The sand was gold and the water crystal clear, with nothing to see apart from Cairns faintly on the horizon. BEST DAY EVER!!! Daisy (the sweetheart) even got me two large kangaroo shot glasses as a parting gift. The girls are off tomorrow and i'll have one final full day in Australia before I start my journey home. Don't regret any of it and so glad I did it. Gonna miss the girls when they're off in Thailand...wishing them all the best.
