Day 18 - Two parks in one day

A travel blog entry by drumboy74


... asked, in a serious voice - 'Can I get one of those jet skis?'... Bless him.... "No - we're getting the jet pack first, son!" Wet n Wild was the destination for the afternoon - back near the campsite. It's a fantastic park - as the title might suggest, very wet and quite wild! We started off with a simple 'race' down a slide (I won! - nothing to do with weight, honestly). I'm not going to attempt to describe the other slides... But all I will say, is that ...

Day 7 - Chilling out, maxing & relaxing all co

... and "bottom-set" on the seabed in depths of 10 m. The nets can be 500 metres from the beach. Occasionally, when we looked out from our hotel room, we could see the buoys attached to the nets but otherwise they are not visible & do not seem to deter or affect the surfers. Watching the beautifully tanned people, Mark observed "Rather than a lovely piece of polished wood we just look like some plasterboard." Awesome. I was channeling English rose!

Job-hunting in the hostel was pointless as the only quiet period was early morning while everyone ...

We'd worked out that an early start was required if there was any chance of securing a bed beside the pool so we were up at breakfast for around seven. Even with that early start we got one of the last two beds! Seems the towel game isn't restricted to the Europeans.

Our plan was again just to relax by the pool for the whole day. Turns out our bed was one of the best for getting the sun with it rarely being shaded. Time was spent reading, baking and jumping in the ...

G'day Mate! Meet Irwin!

A travel blog entry by porters


... coke is $3!!! Say good-bye to coke while we're here. We went to a liquor store and the CHEAPEST beer we could find was a 6 pack for $15, which is Australia dollars so it is more like $17 US. That is just craziness. We opted for wine to say the least. But we've definitely enjoyed making our own food and eating standard food staples for awhile, plus it keeps costs WAY WAY down! We haven't even eaten a meal out yet if you can believe that ...
