    I liked living in this shared house with a couple of friends. 5 people in a two room appartment is not ideal, but it worked out very good. Clean rooms, nice kitchen & livingroom (with 1 threeseater en a oneseater, big tv and airco) and ok bathroom with good shower. You can eat outside on one of the two pick-nick tabels (in stone). There is also a nice little pool.

    ... my sleepy brain was confused with all the signs being in English. The lack of culture shock was pretty underwhelming.

    Not long after waking up and texting my friends Dad and I went foraging for food. We got as far as a small café called Rex’s café while waiting for our food to arrive I witnessed an old lady striding up the street and yelling at a man. Anyway after hunting and gathering dad and I brought our ...

    ... ended up with 21 not bad size ones so not too bad. Came back to Van in drizzling rain so we got a little bit wet. After I'd had a shower and warmed up, we had our breakfasts and then cooked the redclaw and peeled them. We went into Yungaburra to dump the toilet and get the local paper, then came back to Van and had some lunch. We went for a walk between showers then relaxed for the rest of the day. John watched a movie and I did ...

    ... we had a full-day tour to Green Island. We left Cairns at 9am and boarded the boat for an hour ride to the island. It was a beautiful day but quite windy which made for rough waters. When we finally reached the island we were not disappointed! It was a beautiful, tropical paradise. We had hired snorkel gear to use for the day and also an underwater camera. It is just amazing how close and big the reef is. Just about 10 yards off the sandy ...

    Lazy Lagoon Life

    If possible, today was even more lazy than the last. All this adventuring in the outback had worn us out. After checking out just before 10am we walked a painful few minutes to Gilligan's hostel with all the bags and checked in. We then spoke to one of the travel agents about the Great Barrier Reef, one of the main reasons I wanted to come to the East Coast. We booked ourselves onto a boat which offered scuba ...

    ... really just proved how deluded I was at the time. I genuinely thought I could think my way out of getting drunk. Nowadays will power is harder to come by. It's one of those things that comes with age, I think. As you become disenchanted and disenfranchised, you suddenly start thinking 'I should' rather than 'I'm going to.' Of course it doesn't apply to everyone, but I certainly feel like it applies to me. I'm not an intrinsically lazy person. I like being active, seeing stuff ...
