I am now a qualified Open Water diver, hooray for me had a wicked 2 days with 4 dives off the reef a shark came within spitting distance of me and caught it all on video. saw everything from turtles to giant clams, sea cucumbers to potato cod. Took loads of photos and vids using an underwater camera, got attacked by around 50 fish as was in the water and people were feeding the fish! Was quite funny got some good videos, trouble uploading the photos so stay tuned. I can now dive anywhere in the world down to 18m so wreck diving off the gold coast and Perth awaits. Went on a rainforest treck and wen gorge swimming and rock jumping which was pretty cool. Saw some crocodiles, sea snakes, tree frogs, bats, flying foxes and kingfishers on a river cruise, unfortunately the crocs were only babies so were about 30cm long, I want to see an 8m!
Got 5 days left in Cairns, not really sure what im going to do.....but then its off down the coast to Mission Beach for some skydiving, white water rafting and sea kyaking! There will be no Bungee Jumping on this trip (to put mum at ease) cos ive decided I dont actually want to through myself off a 40m high platform with a piece of elastic to save me, I would rather throw myself out of a plane at 15,000 ft with a thin piece of cloth to save me lol!
