Magntic Island is paradise! Only a few days of rain a year, right on the beach and a buzzing bar. What more could a backpacker ask for? Cheaper prices would be nice. Can't believe how expensive it is here and how good I was at saving and how rubbish I am at budgeting!
Got on the Oz Experience bus from Mission Beach with a good crowd and on the first snack stop we got ourselves some cheap wine, AKA goon. Not sure if it's an Aussie term or a backpacker term but everyone knows what goon is down the East Coast. It comes in 4ltr boxes for $15. Can't get much drunker, I mean cheaper, than that! I stayed at Base Backpackers with everyone from the bus and had a good couple of days partying and suffering the day after then partying again. The staff were cool too but it's the "law" to confiscate any alcohol they find in the dorms, unless you let them drink it with you! Stealing off of backpackers... What next?
Australia is cool to party but not much else! It's a bit of a shock to me after Asia just because there aren't a million and one things I feel like I need to rush around and see. It is beautiful though and the people here are completely nuts!
