Hi from Byron Bay
So we are now in the Hippy town of Byron bay...a place which people love or they hate!
So far so good. We are styaing at the biggest backpackers in Byron which is very good by hostel standards. With lots of free stuff...such as bike hire...surf board hire...etc. We are styaing in an apartment...which consists of two 4bed dorms with their own kitchen, bathroom and Living area. So it been very nice. We have totally taken advantage of having a DVD player (funny the things you miss!) and have had a couple of chilled days where we are just watching movies...and sprawling out! Very nice!
Today however we got up at 5am and went to the top of Cape Byron to watch the sunrise (which is what the photos are of!) It was beautiful and well worth the walk and early start! We then went back to bed for three hours (oh the life of a backpacker!)
The Town is famous for the beach...which is very nice but not as impressive as Surfers paradise...Sometimes we have to tell ourselves of though...the beach is in fact amazing...but we see so many beches that we have very high standards. The Cape is famous for its wildlife. You can swim and see wild dolphins...turtles...etc and in peak season Whales as well.
Tomorrow we are off to go Kayaking with the dolphins...such a once in a lifetime opportunity..so why am i so scared?!? Maybe its the whole fin thing? Dolphin? Shark? all look the same from a kayak. But im sure it will be fine!
Nimbin is a reall attraction here as well...a little town outside here which is notourious for the use of Pot. We are not planning on going...but lots do!
Short one today....will speak soon and update from after the Fin experience...if we are still alive!
Lots of love
