    we liked the location right opposite the Q1 building & right next to the beach. the kitchen was of ok standard and the bedding etc was clean. we just didnt like that you couldnt bring your own alcohol into the hostel as they have their own bar and the prices of the drinks in their bar are quite expensive and the drinks are understocked!not a very sociable hostel!

    ... a tunnel and they shoot you up a 60m high vertical tower so you go from being horizontal to vertical in a matter of seconds. Once at the top you hang there for about a second where it feels like your just gonna free fall and then you whizz back down, forwards this time back into the tunnel. This is all done at like 100mph. We did it once and we just looked at each other and knew we needed to do it again. This was the only ride we did twice but it was ...

    ... I've felt a little bit lost today. Not sure quite how to function. Hopefully it's just an off day and I can maintain my current positive streak. Because it was raining we decided to order out for pizza (this was good because we have free pizzas promised to us from Dominoes after their disastrous service in Cairns), so we both ordered a pizza. When it came to sending for it, we were told we got garlic bread and coke too. Even better. When it arrived, they'd ...

    ... bought our tickets before shooting up between floors 1 and 77 in about 43 seconds. Like so many vistas seen from height, the view was very serene. Vast waves crashing towards the shore appeared to be mere white-crested ripples gently washing the sand. Busy traffic hectically trying to negotiate a cross-roads with a broken set of traffic lights seemed to be just calmly going about its happy business. From this height (230 metres above ...

    ... Beach' tomorrow morning. Bizarrely, several from them are from Devon and Exeter. Ben drove the four by four back to the house without incident, other than confusing indicator and windscreen wiper controls and accidentally turning off the lights for a short stretch. Back here, there was some more festive secrecy and we did some cooking ready for tomorrow's dinner. We finished the day chatting to and laughing with the boys in their lounge ...

    ... sports at any level in some time. After the first quarter they did compete a bit better but the game was lost early on. So... since the competition was lacking, let's talk about the food and drink!

    One of the great things about travelling is experiencing new foods and there was more to try at the game. I experienced Meat Pies and Chiko Rolls. Meat Pies are just as they sound but Chiko Rolls may ...
