Nat and Beck Go Large!
HURRAH! On Monday there was a break in the rain long enough for us to get out of the hostel. Unfortunately it was also long enough for us to make it to the shops and blow our budget - yet again! It was worth it though, Becky got a new black 'kini and a pair of leather flip flop thingies and Nat 'invested' in a purple Roxy weekend travel bag (we do travel at weekends you know) and a very cute white dress. Yesterday was by far the best day we've had here - topped off by the dicovery of PG Tips in a British Lolly Shop. They have a completely different version of english over here. They call Sweets 'Lollies', they also say things like 'Fair Dinkum - we're not 100% sure what it actually means but apparently its positive! I've just been informed by Nat that according to our precious lonely planet phrase book 'Dinkum' means honest or genuine - you work it out! Our fave so far is 'Pash Rash', this can be translated as Beefy, Spammy, Hickey or 'for god's sake don't let your nan see that!' - also known as Chewy if youre from Preston! This is our last day in Cairns, we're moving on again tomorrow. Shouldn't imagine anything eventful will happen but if it does we'll let you know! Love Beck and Nat xxx
