    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.

    There's always one... In every hostel, every club in Brighton, on every beach, in the town... A Mentallist. Usually can be distinguished amongst the rest by the length of their hair, the least amount of clothing worn/a weird combination of clothes, their smell?! Whether their holding a bottle of naughty juice in a paper bag, and if they are …

    Had to pick up a few bits from the shops this morning and then headed to the beautiful Lagoon. Lovely just sitting in the shade enjoying the cool ocean breeze. Alex also tested the underwater camera out that we have brought. We then walked around the front until we reached the Marina and saw some teenagers arriving in beautiful cars for a school …
