Gav & Sarah's Travels
To get to Magnetic island we had to get a bus to townsville.....boring town n then get then ferry to the island,which we ended up missing by 1 minute cos my bank card wouldnt work to pay for the tickets so had to find a cash machine so we had a lovely 2 hour wait for the next ferry which happened to b at end of school time so was full of school kids.arghh! lol wed already booked a lil car for the day..the islands small but to big to walk...thats all we ever do!!the car wed hired are cute lil buggy type things n were quiet cheap,they come in loadsa different colour included pink which gav had already said no to cos he was the main driver....ok i accept that lol. but haha when we went to pick it up they only had a pink one or a just plain white one so even gav said the white one was boring so we got pink :o) yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!you can drive up the island in bout 15 minutes so we just drove for ages up n down seeing the sights n shops etc we checked into a hostel called base where we got to sleep in lil cabins on the beach...rooms where small though with 8 beds in -arrggggh we r fed up with bunk beds lol. nice though!that night we had a early night,had been a long day on the bus! the next day the weather was misserable!was really cold cos of the wind!we were gonna stay 2 nights but cos there isnt much to do on the island except go to the beaches but cos the bad weather it was pretty boring!so we just spent the rest of the day wizzing round in our car taking photos then hopped ona ferry, then a bus to Cairns.
