... intoxicated from our gambling rushes. We headed for a beer to clam our emotions and shortly after Mark came to pick us back up. We didn’t get up too much that night; we were all still fairly knackered from the previous night so after a spliff or two and a film we headed to sleep.

Mark topped the previous mornings delicious breakfast with a round of pancakes to wake us up. His breakfasts easily take the crown for the best breakfasts we had all holiday and once we ...

Moreton Island Adventure

... just the beginning of the really great dolphin season here but it was amazing to have a chance to even see a few. And as we were still focused on that we started to see turtles....I have always wanted to see a turtle in it's natural habitat and it was so worth the wait! they were huge and beautiful creatures and they can move FAST!!!!! That was the ultimate end to the most beautiful day on the ocean. We sat peacefully enjoying the scenery for the hour long trip back to ...

Falling in Love with the Heart Shaped Island

A travel blog entry by sambeavis


... the change in landscape and some of these small towns which almost seem a bit stuck in the 1980's, we took a break at moles creek and did a small 2km walk around the forest above Solomon's Cave as we just missed the last cave tour for the day. As we approached Cradle Mountain I think I stopped breathing for a while, I had never in my life seen a landscape so magical and mythical in all my life, we were so high with the odd tree poking up in this Barron land. I was in ...

We are Sailing

... at all.These guys had waited on us hand and foot for the past 11 days and don't get paid very well. The majority of the men had wives and children back in the Philippines who they only got to see once every 6 months.It was an honour and a pleasure to reward them and so humbling to see the joy on their faces when they opened their envelopes.We docked back into Brisbane at 6am and by 8am we had left our cabin. We went to the buffet for our breakfast and
and at 9am went ...

Blissful Brisbane

A travel blog entry by wanderlizzy

So tonight to celebrate Peters birthday properly, I'm taking him out for dinner on a paddle steamer on the Brisbane river. Weve had some lovely days exploring the city but tomorrow we pack our bags once more to head to New Zealand. Christchurch, here we come, more news later, until then, bye 4 ...

    Violent owner

    The owner of Blue Tongue is a violent man with zero compassion. He allows the house to fall into unsanitary conditions and if you cross him, he will scream in your face and kick you out. Do not give this man your money.
