    Arrived into Cairns on May 16, suddenly into very tropical country! Hot, humid, very lush...oh, and serious bouts of torrential downpours at the most inconvenient times!

    ... as they were full) and checked in to N Joy Hostel (where we are now) which is a much more chilled out hostel, but it's fairly cool. Due to the fact that we have spent a lot of money up to now, this last week has been a chilled out time so that we can spend as little as possible, and save as much as possible for New Zealand.

    ... No one was there but us, and another man playing the didgeridoo, but nonetheless, we made mother nature into the greatest water park.

    3. The drive from the Atherton Tablelands back to Cairns:

    Well, Skutes thought he was a Nascar driver. And that he was. With speeds up to 80km/hr, the curviest and windiest of roads, and a decline of a Canadian black diamond ski run, the roads proved to kick Skutes' ass. By this we mean that his neck was out ...
