We travelled on the overnight bus to stay in Koalas Resort in Airlie beach. This was used as a base to travel the Whitsundays on the 'Pride of Airlie' catermeran for 3 days/2nights. The boat held 67 people and luckily we knew a lot of people on the same trip that had been travellin up the coast. When we got on the boat we were given a full H & S talk and an indepth talk about not shoving tampons down the loo!!! I also had to stand up and be the dummy for life jacket demo- very embarassing. Once the boat started to get moving everyone started drinking. We didnt stay on the boat but on the resort of South Molle Island where the party continued and played drinking games. We had really nice meals on the trip. They would have been even nicer if I hadnt have been violently sea sick. This again was also very emabarrassing as I was the only one on the boat who was sick! We stopped at Whitehaven beach where the sand was pure white and everyone had the chance to go snorkelling in stinger suits on the Great barrier Reef around Cook Island. The weather cleared on the 3rd day as it had been rainy and windy the previous two.
We got back to Koalas resorth but had to move rooms as it stunk of wee! Foul! The second room wasnt much better especially when Tommy woke up with a cockroach on his head! Luckily we only stayed there 1 more night.
Lots of Love Faye ,Jess and Tommy
