Hello! Once again, i have failed to keep this up so it's going to have to be another big one I'm afraid!
After brisbane, I went to surfers paradise and met up with someÂ friends off my oz bus. We went to a surfing competition and saw lots of celeb surfers. Really liked Surfers- beautiful beaches, good shopping and nightlife!
We then moved on altogether to Byron Bay.Â I LOVED THIS PLACE!!! One of the highlights of my trip, was amazing and lots of fun. My friends Aiden from Fraser island even flew down from cairns before he left for london to say goodbye and to spend his last few days with us all.Â We lay on the beach, had surfing lessons (harder than it looks but so much fun), went to Nimbin (a crazy hippy town)......and i did a skydive!Â Best thing i've ever done in my life.Â I was going to wait until nz but it was gorgeous weather and the view over byron bay was too incredible.Â I did a 14000ft skydive with a 70 second freefall and was filmed all the way so the dvd's pretty hilarious.
Ended up staying in Byron for a week because i liked it so much and the people were lots of fun.Â We then all went to surf camp for one night then on to sydney.Â Stayed at a really nice hostel but the weather was a shock, because for the first time in 6 weeks, i saw grey clouds and drissle! Was not v. nice at all.Â I think the weather really affected my opinion of sydney, i really missed the beach life....
Mum and dad arrived on the 24th, it was great to see them.Â They loved Sydney and enjoyed walking around the city.Â I went with my friends to the Blue mountains and got soaked- i felt like i was in snowdonia!
Now we've flown back up to Cairns and I'm so happy because its sunny, sunny, sunny again! Mum and dad went on a trip up to cape tribulation and were blown away by it allÂ ( i'm not sure if they'll ever go home).Â we all went on a day trip to the great barrier reef. I did two dives which were brilliant and they snorkelled.Â We then took a helicopter ride over 3 reefs.Â We'd never been in a heli before- it was so beautiful.Â The colours were amazing and looked just like the posters.Â Got some good photos to bore you all with!Â Thats another highlight of my trip.Â
Now we're having a day chilling by the pool and are driving to the whitsundays tomorrow for more fun ( hopefully in the sun).
Hope you're all well at home and enjoying the good weather i keep hearing about!
Lots of love xxxxxxxxxxxxx
