Journal brought to you by Sophie
This morning we went for a nice leisurely dip in the pool and then went to Travel Bugs, the tour operator to go on the internet.Â While we were there our friend from Newcastle (as in the Newcastle Australia) called Luke (the ginger afro tall guy) popped in to say hello so we hung around with him for a couple of hours in Byron town.Â We went back for a drink at his hostel and then Holly turned up.Â She had been to the hospital because she had hurt her knee in a drunken accident and had to get the fluid removed.Â We arranged to meet up later and then went back to Travel Bugs to book our main activities over the next few weeks.Â
Basically we want to go on a three day trip to Fraser Island, the world?s largest sand island, a three day sailing trip around the Whitsunday Islands and white water rafting on the Tully River.Â We booked it all and it took a ridiculous two hours to sort and made a considerable dent in our already dwindling finances.Â However at least now we have some kind of structure in our crazy lives.Â
That evening we visited Holly and Luke and played some cards at their apartment with another person we had met in Newcastle called Shola and some weird and somewhat gay pervy German dudes. We didn?t make it a big night out because I had a really bad headache and just wanted to sleep.Â Too much excitement I guess!
And that was the day.Â Thoroughly exciting.
