    The YHA in Airlie Beach is a really tidy place, can't complain about it. As in most YHA, the crowd is a little older and more respectful of others, which we greatly appreciate. However, the activities advertized were not organized like the get together diners or the movie nights. It didn't really bother me that much but at least take down the signs so you don't get people think they pay to stay at some place where stuff is organized.

    Some good things are lovely common areas, nice kitchen and breakfast area. Room most expensive I have paid, except for Sydney, and rooms are a bit cramped in the new section. If I had to it it again, I probably would not stay in the room with the ensuite bath.... If you stay on the courtyard side, I think it can be noisy. But I faced out back on the fourth floor and it was fine.

    Sorry fans...quite an uneventful day to write about! Having decided to brave it and head to Cairns (Virgin were still flying there) I treated myself finally to a yummy breakfast at the Playfair Cafe in the Rocks where I made some friends from Melbourne (I didnt tell them about the poll I've got running!) and then bumped into my roommates so joined …

    12th to 15th November, Cairns

    We went to the campervan hire place today and there was a screw up re the dates and hire so we have three days in Cairns to work and catch up. Oh good - time to relax with the children.

    I have been looking into the statistics on infanticide.

    This is strictly the murder of your …

    Last day in Cairns

    A travel blog entry by shawnb12 on Nov 14, 2014

    Since mom hadn't done anything except shop since arriving in Cairns, we decided to do something different. We booked a last minute trip to Kuranda in the rain forest. We took the sky tram up over the rain forest to the town and then took the train back. It was a relaxing scenic day. I think the waterfall would have been more impressive during the …

    Today we went to Woodleigh Ranch that is owned by a family and has been open for a long time. They still have the first house in the back yard and some of the things are still in there. It was beautiful and the family was really sweet. They made us lunch and served us tea a couple times. Everything was fresh. We saw cows get castrated, branded, and …

    Today we went to The Great Barrier Reef! This is another one of my bucket list things. It was real rough out there but I got out there. On the way back there was a big storm and we were out in the ocean for another hour and a half. They gave us complimentary wine and cheese because of the wait. The water and the mountains were breathtaking. It was …
