Ok, so the much awaited blog is here, yet again. I know some of you have trouble waiting between blogs, but believe it or not, we tend to be pretty busy during the days (and sometimes i just cant be bothered to write them!!)
So we jumped on the oz experience bus in cairns, and noticed just how few people were on the bus. It worked well for us as at 7am, all we wanted to do was sleep, and with a double set of leather seats each, that worked pretty well. Our first day we visited a crocodile farm and held mini crocs, snakes and a black cocatoo (see photos if you dont believe us!). We also fed little kangaroos and petted some tame dingos.
From there, we were on the road again to Magnetic Island. On our first night there, drinking games ensued and as the 2nd place team, we won a Barbie car to drive around in the following day. Pink and white, with no roof or windows. Hilarious! We drove around the tiny island, sat on the beach, went on a walk to find koalas and wallabies and i spent a small amount of time giggling to myself at Juliets 'in awe' face.
That night, the drinking started again, but i opted for some people watching instead. All of a sudden, we hear a bang, and the table that people had been dancing on had collapsed and Juliet was underneath with her dress in the air. What a classy lady!
From there, we headed to Arlie Beach where the weather was a bit dodgy. With literally a strip of bars and shops to visit, we spent some time sitting around making use of any free internet we could. Then Tuesday arrived, and armed with 2 boxes of goon we wandered down to the harbour to catch the boat - The Clipper.
50 other people boarded with us, and the food was definitely upto our standards. BBQ, burgers, sandwiches and breakfasts - we definitely weren't going hungry! However, being dropped off on a beach for 3 hours in stinger suits in the pouring rain at 8am was NOT our idea of fun. Luckilyfor us, the rain stopped and weplayed lots of games and took lots of photos in the sea. We also enjoyed a spot of snorkeling and sunbathing as the weather cleared up. The less said about the drinking in the evenings the better. Suffice it to say that Jules was drunk enough to lock herself into our tiny cabin until we rescuedher 45 mins later to find her dying for a wee!
Despite being one who is prone to seasickness, the boat proved to be fine. It wasnt until we returned to land on the Thursday that the land sickness kicked in. Trying to stay upright while the shower appears to be swaying is no fun for anybody!!
Thats all for now - internet time is precious here, and we'll have much more to write once we're back from Fraser Island. Also, for those of you who are getting a little impatient for my photos - they will also be up soon, i promise!1
miss you all xx
