g'day! reachedÂ the final destination inÂ our trip up the East coast already! wah! After Fraser Island we did a two night boat trip around the Whitsunday Islands. It was so relaxing. We did a lot of snorkelling (anything to get out of the sun...it was so hot) and saw fish at least 1 metre long! We had to wear stinger suits to protect us from jelly fish. cez and I were loving it. There was about 20 in our group and we all slept on the deck in our sleeping bags under the moon.
The beaches we were taken to hadÂ white sand and the bluest water Ive ever seen...got the pics to prove it!Â Â I loved it...was just what we needed after the chaos of Fraser island. after that we headed up to Townsville and caught the ferry over to Magnetic Island where we stayed for 5 days. It is a really remote place with abouit two hostels, one small supermarket and a handful of cafes on the whole island! bizarre. We hired a bright pink barbie car to get around. We looked absolutely ridiculous in it...you'll see when I get the piccys on! We chilled out on beaches and went for runs. One day we went horse riding...I was petrified, I landed myself with the naughty horse and was sure I was going to be thrown off! I asked the bloke if I could get off and he seemed a bit offended that I didnt like his horse so I hav\d to stay on for the whole 2 hours! Rhian and cez were very amused and in fits of laughter-will get them back at some point! We went on them bareback in the sea at one point. Glad I did it but never again thats for sure! We went to a Koala sanctuary one day too and held Barny the Koala, snakes, lizards and baby crocs...Rhian was petrified this time!Will put pics on soon.Â
In Cairns now...leaving for New Zealand on saturday at 7am....probably sleeping at the airport Friday evening, cosy?!!Â Over aÂ third of the way through already, it flying by. Having the trip of our lives but looking forward home comforts too xxx thanks for the emails xxx
