so now i'm in cairns and its back to work for me beacuse im completely skint!! after surfers i went to brisbane for a few days. met up with kathryn (yay, hi!) and visited a koala sanctury where i got to cuddle a koala and pat some kangaroo's in the head (aww, bless!). next stop was noosa, a really pretty little beach lesson where i had surf lesson number 2, not really much progress made i afraid, but still had fun falling over! after that it was hervey bay and then fraser island. fraser island is the biggest sand island in the world and i went in a group of 10 with a 4wd for 3days. it was soo good, i did some of the driving and it was so surreal driving along the beach, and so much fun getting stuck in the sand and having to dig ourselves out! luckily we didnt ever get stuck too badly! at one point, we were driving along the beach and a plane took off right next to us, also using the beach as a runway! after here i went to a wee town called town of 1770, it was so nice, quite quiet and really cheap because its not too touristy yet. while i was here i was brave and hired some surf boards with a couple of friends and went out minus the instructors! luckily for us, the sea was quite calm so we just messed around and managed not to kill ourselves or get eaten by sharks! i also went on a trip called scooteroo where you spend 4 hours driving around the countryside on chopper motorbikes!was amazing and got to see lots of kangaroos in the wild and then went to a pub to watch the sunset on some rocks opposite. from here a took the overnight bus (not fun, 2hours late and very uncomfortable!) to airlie beach to go on a sailing trip from 3 days around the whitsunday islands. these were gorgeous, especially whitehaven beach which was the whitest sand. my last stop before cairns was magnetic island which was also beautiful, just stopped there for 2 nights and spent my day there taking the bus to a few pretty beaches then passing out next to the pool! got to cairns on monday and had 3 job offers by wednesday which was pretty good! started work last night in a nightclub called soho. looks like im going to be back in the nocturnal lifestyle for the next month! definately couldnt do a day job up here, its too damn hot to go outside!
