FInal destination.......hopefully not like the film
UPDATE : So i am now sitting in Sydney airport freezing cold as there air conditioning seems to be blowing out antarctic air. Mark had his hair trimmed and his beard trimmed - Anne you can sleep easy now, he no longer has pubes on his face! i cant afford a hair cut so mine is looking like a bush ( the hair on my head!) .
So anyway Cairns is the hottest and most humid place we have ever been to! apparently theres a heat wave. you looked like youd been in the swimming pool by the time you had walked to the toilet thats how humid it was!We stayed in Nomads - some of you may already know the hatred and anger i felt/still feel about this place. it was discusting, took us four hours to wash our clothes on the first night which broke me, yes this was the first time i have cried whilst being away and it was over washing! our aircon in our room didnt work for two nights we both felt like death, the unit itself was held up by a wooden doorstop (dont ask me how!) there was tiny insects crawling everywhere. the whole place needs to be torn down. Nevermind im soo over that now!.
You cant go in the sea as everything in australia wants to kill and eat you (apparently) im sure this is a lie and just to scare you because we didnt see any death animals. there is a lagoon which is 27 degrees so very hot but nice to dip in and out of.
MArk did his skydive! woop jumped out of an areoplane at 17 thousand feet eek i was so nervous and i was on the ground!. i went to the landing zone, its weird because its so high up you cant even see the plane or them jump out!! you can hear the shoot go up then you start to see little specs, i do have pictures which il upload to facebook when i can.
We went scuba diving on the great barrier reef ( yes another boat!) i couldnt equalize my ears so i didnt do it! and marks mask kepy on leaking so he didnt do it! so we just snorkled. i dont know why i thought id be immune from sea sickness because obviously i wasnt! and i was sick into the sea again (after taking 5 sea sickness tablets!!)! fortunetly i didnt get fish attacked!.
We have had a wicked time in Australia met some great people! but both of us are now ready to go to New Zealand- its alot cheaper there!. This is definetly a once in a lifetime trip to Australia( unless we win the lottery), its far to expensive and things are way over priced which is a tad annoying you do feel as though your being robbed for every penny - we even had to pay 6 dollars each to catch the shuttle in the airport to go to a different terminal!. If any of you are thinking of doing this then id reccomend you working here as there minmum wage is 15 dollars an hour ( thats if you can find work!). ITS A RICH MANS WORLD OUT HERE!.
Anyway iv got a plane to catch! New Zealand here we come woop
see you all in 3 and abit weeks...........................TBC
