Hi Everyone! I know I am falling behine a bit at this blog thing but honestly I've been so busy having fun that I haven't had much time of th computer.
Anyway I am now in Brisbane and had a wicked fortnight in Cairns. I did lots of cool stuff like dive in the Great Barrier Reef which I have always wanted to do so I decided to go diving three times! (The instructor said I was the coolest diver that week cos I was the only one to go 3 times). The colours of the coral and fish were amazing and I got to hold sea cucumbers and touch giant clams. I saw lots of nemo fish and I even got to feed a giant turtle!!!! Didn't see a shark though :(
I also went to a place called Cape Tripulation where the Daintree rainforest meets the reef. It was like a little bit of paradise if it wasnt for the crocodiles that stopped us from swimming in the sea. Whilst there I went horseriding along the beach and through the forest and I was on Wombat- apparently the slow horse. All I can say is the other riders can't have been very good because when we were cantering he wanted to overtake the ex-racehorse in front.
I've had some chilled out days as well shopping and relaxing at Palm Cove which is a beautiful beach, and tanning in the Lagon. But the best thing I have done so far has to be...........SKYDIVING!!!!!
Omg I can't believe I jumped out of a plane when I am scared of flying! The pilot knew this and thught it funny to do acrobatics but made up for that by letting me have a go at flying the plane!!!! The experience was unreal. I was excited but felt nervous when my legs were dangling out of the plane and Andre (my instructor) told me to look down. Then we tumbled out of the plane and I could see it below me because we were flipping and then there was the rush of freefall. It is unbelievable- the sights, sounds and feelings are like nothing I've experienced before. When the parachute opened I was struck but the quietness and the views! To top this of I got to steer the parachute before landing on a sandy beach. I am so glad I did this!!!!!!!!!
