Austrailia here we come!!!! woooo hooo!! we are embarking on a day of travelling - 9 hours of total air time - on our way to the glorious east coast of australia with cairns, queensland the destination.
the flight itself was broken up into two legs from singapore to darwin, then darwin to cairns. the flight was smooth and safe and all that noise, but the interesting thing was the seating arrangement. marc and i werent one another on the plane so the speculation started as to who we would be sitting next to. well my neighbours were people pretty close to home they were, drum role please, from liverpool!!!!!!! nick and mel were two of the nicest coolest people i could ever ask to spend 9 hours with. he had the same sense of humour as me and we spoke about our fave programms and quotes the whole time. mel was an unbelievably talented singer songwriter, i heard her stuff on her ipod. we chatted the whole time and when we finally got to cairns i was kinda sad to say goodby. but i we will meet up again in merseytown very soon.
we landed in oz at 8am and were quickly whisked off to our new home for three days - the cairns colonial club! the rest of teh day was spent acclimatising to australia and its wonderful people. i did actuall get a chance to speak to richelle on skype which was such a nice moment as we hadnt spoken to eachother for days. i knew tha the tour would be hard without seeing her everyday but i would get through with her advice, "stop being such a girl and enjoy yourself!"
anyway the next blog is just around the corner, so hold tight as the journey is about to begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!
