      Ok, but a long walk to town

      Nice, large rooms, well maintained and friendly managers. But the rooms are starting to get a bit dated and the place is right down the hospital end of town quite a hike to the main part of Cairns

      ... something old that will make me cry. A good cathartic cry that, when you're done, makes you feel empty of any negativity and ready to face whatever shitstorm is coming your way. So that's what I did. And afterwards, I counted my blessings (that we didn't die in said car crash being one of them) and decided to stop being such a misog (if you're reading this (bravo!) and you're not English "misog" basically translates to "miserable silly *****").

      After a ridiculously long wait in the airport to check in (6 hours to be exact) I was finally on my way to Cairns, then I landed and waited another 4 hours for my bus to the hostel. After what seemed like the longest night of my life I arrived in Cairns and... it was raining! That didn't stop me, so I decided to get a map and explore, but first a coffee. Sat reading my map & drinking my coffee & over comes this French guy and ...

      We headed back to the beach and went to the rental hut again to see about getting a paddle board. Was $20 for an hour so we got one. It was quite hard to do with 2 people on it but I managed it. Fair to say we fell in quite a few times. Took it in turns to have a go on our own and was so much easier, but ...

      ... So much colour and so many fish! We got extremely lucky for everything we saw, way better then the divers because they had to do so much training and never went very far from the boat. While there a 2 meter shovel headed ray (a guitar shark) swam right underneath Kata and I. After that we startled a turtle who took off with quite some speed compared to the ones at Whitsunday who let us go right up to them. We saw tons of cool little fish like little ...

      ... much. For dinner we went to P.J.O'Brien's, there was a deal that meant we could have steak and a beer for $7! Day 3 - We lagooned during the day, yes it is now a verb, it means to the lagoon or swim in the lagoon. In the evening we wanted to go out, but people in our room had to get up early the next day so we didn't have anyone to with, we got suckered in to the 'Ultimate Party'! It was a bar crawl, but between the bars you got on a hop on hop off tour bus. It involved some ...
