Arrived in Cairns peeps!! Arrived at Hostel Dreamtime which is nice but a little far from the harbour front.. but that doesnt bother me too much just my feet are a little sore from all the walking I did in Singapore plus had to buy a new pair of flip flops (aka Thongs) ouchey
So arrived in Cairns met some other solo travellers at the airport waiting for the same bus and were all friends now... Kerry from Surrey, Andreas Dannish but lives in Spain, Amanda and Vanessa also from Surrey.. we all went for drinks at the Woolshed but was a quiet night as Andreas, Kerry and I had booked a trip to Fitzroy island for some snorkling fun and chill on the beach... BTW I am told that Green Island is too touristy, lots of people etc... Fitzroy was amazing!! (everyone is trying to sell you tours etc here) so the pic attached is from the Island... I see a baracuda, star fish (bright blue one), sting ray and a few other exciting things but the MOST amazing was a TURTLE!!!! Massive one! Lovely... basically I am still buzzing because of it... had a lovely day over there got a little burnt on my feet and back even though I was sitting in the shade?!?! WTF.. yep its hot sticky and a little unconfortable but its ok... Anyways whilst on the Island we met a lovely couple called Nate and Kim.. Nate from Pittsburg US and Kim from S.Korea.. We arranged to eat at the Green Ant at 8.30 later then drinks at Gilligans to meet up with Amanda and Vanessa.. Gilligans!!! well what can I say?! full of drunks and a meat market?!?!? was funny but not my scene... bit too loud but it was amusing watching people strip and play silly games...
Just trying to plan the rest of my trip so a little busy.. thinking a trip out to the outer reef for tomorrow and then head to Mission Beach or Magnetic Island on Saturday or Sunday.... Cant decide... I think Saturday and I should skip Mission Beach and head straight to Magnetic Island for Croc and Koala hostel?!?! any one got any issues with me missing mission beach? only I wanna skydive in NZ and beaches I will see plenty on the gold coast?! right... yeahhhh
I am going to book some things this morning, I will update you soon
