      Good deals, spacious rooms, not as modern as the other global backpacker but closer to the waterfront and quiter.

      So Monday came where I was to now head off on my own and see a bit of Australia!

I arrived in Cairns and I just couldn't …

I ended up staying in this fantastic hostel called Asylum. It was probably the best and happiest time in my life so far. They create this atmosphere where the staff and backpackers feel like a family. As I stayed there for around 3 weeks, I became close very quickly with the residents and staff there. We had some fantastic nights ...

      Perth ended with me getting no colour whatsoever despite numerous hours of sunbathing. I said goodbye to Kate and John and promised to see them come Christmas. Life down under is amazing but after a monumental **** up through STA Travel my 5 weeks stay has turned into 3.5 weeks. After several rather huge hissy fits, I decided to get on with it and make the most of the time I had left. The plane ride to Sydney was ...
