Well What a amazing few days in Cairns... So much to tell you all so here goes...
Met a wicked few people in Tribal Travel Cairns called Erryn and Beth!! Book ed loads of trips and made loads of new friends... Went on a reef cruise to the outer reef visited Saxon and Hastings.. First one wasnt great didnt see much fish but was lovely colours on the reef. Invested in a under water camera so will send pics home to be developed... but the 2nd reef was amazing.... I can only snorkle at both but the 2nd one I braved up some courage (yeah right) to ask for a snorkle tour and OMG!! was amazing! I see a whole family of nemo (clown fish) little baby ones and big ones... alot darker in the body but was defo orange and black.. plus some amazingly huge clams! the guide picked up 2 different kinds of sea cucumber, one black and one called pineapple I tocuhed them both and they looked and felt rubbery and the colours on the pineapple were outstandingly bright!!
Anyways met a few people on board including a german couple who just found out they expecting there first baby! sweet! and a guy from Canada called Jamie who was telling me about his celeb friends in the world of dnb and dubstep... he knows Will from Chase and status! We got some wicked entertainment onboard the boat called Black Elvis... he sang some funny versions of Elvis and dont worry be happy and then taught us how to play the didereedo... then me and Jamie went and sat by the lagoon (pool area) by the beach at Cairns.. had a chat then left and mentioned to him about the halloween party happening at the Woolshed! Got back to town and got a lift back to Njoy my new hostel... amazing place.. Even have fridges in our room with a freezer so I could freeze water for the next day (today)
So got changed and headed to Beths room (next door) we did face paints and had some evil looking faces for the Halloween party! I looked terrifying... btw the halloween theme came from Friday 13th... Was a wicked night we all got wrecked and were dancing on the tables some more fun tourist games.. they nearly got a scottish guy naked which was pretty funny..I got some weird blokes... OMG some guy pinched my nipple and then followed me around all night after I told him repeadly that I had a boyfriend so decided the f word was appropriate then another guy as I was walking home offered me the chance to help him out... again I mentioned I had a boyfriend he said I could watch!! JOKES!! was not impressed! so used the f word again!! was kinda kick him in the nuts.. d*** !
Well after a nice lay in this morning I managed to drag my arse out of bed and took myself to the lagoon (btw you cant swim in the sea here unless assistant by a tour guide because of stingers and starks) so we chilled by the pool.. Funny day actually.. Dolly Erryn little girl is hilirious! She was doing a handstand and smacked her mouth on the bottom of pool and had a fat lip made us all laugh.. then a girl nearly drowned so ambulance was called in.. Dolly joked that she had a massive fight with her and the other girl came off worse... lol funny little girl shes only 9 too..
then walked home and stopped at woolworths to get some food... yep woolworths is still open here and its like a food grocery store (bit like tescos express size but a tad bigger) just cooked some chicken and pasta and done some washing... learnt a trick to getting free laundry too involving cotton buds.. anyone interested in learning please ask when I get back.. saves mega bucks as its $4 per wash and same for dryer...! going to pack my stuff as am leaving Cairns tomorrow... off to Magnetic island for some Koala and croc experiences... staying there for a few nights!! Cannot wait... booked most of my agenda now too.. Boomerang lesson, surf lesson, Castaway on 1770, scootaroo and loads more..
Oh I see the Reef city Rollergirls today by the lagoon, selling calenders and stickers... couldnt believe it.. picked up a program and they mentioned I should stop by and see the roller derby teams in Brisbane!! defo will!! I cannot wait to do the rest of my trip.. I am kinda lonely but enjoying meeting new friends... Especially the 2 guys I met on my first day (Andreas and Kerry) and Erryn and Beth (Tribal travel)
