Sallys Worldwide Adventure
29 June 2006 I arrived in Townsville and had to take a ferry over to Magnetic Island. Was meant to be simple but I spent ages waiting waiting for Lynn who I was travelling with, then her bus dropped her at a different place to mine, then had to walk with my bag, which I am so not good at to the bus stop and get a bus to the ferry port. By the time I finally got to the ferry port Lynn had been waiting for 3 hours! Got to the hostel and this is where I met Sophie. The next day was our only full day on the island, so the 3 of us and a friend of mine AK hired a land rover discovery and drove all the way round the island stopping off at certain beaches and places. We stopped and saw a whole load of rock wallabies and fed them some carrot, they were really cute, really shy to start with but as soon as we got in the car they were all out on the rocks for the food! We ended the day by driving up to west point and seeing the sunset!
