    Just what we needed

    We stayed for one night before a very early flight the next morning, but the friendliness of the staff, the comfort of the room, the pool and the bbq were exactly what we needed to relax before heading home. The hotel is very conveniently located between the airport and downtown. The room had everything we needed; a Queen bed, a kitchenette, ensuite bathroom and a microwave and fridge. They also had lots of little notes throughout the room with suggestions on where to eat, how to get around and just plenty of helpful tips. There was a little hiccup when we checked in but the staff proved very professional and fixed everything up for us. It really was no big deal and had no impact on our enjoyment of the place. I would definitely recommend staying here.

    Nothing on the agenda today apart from an hours drive to Cairns, finding our hotel and returning the car to the airport. We took our time leaving Port Douglas and decided on a detour into the mountains to take in the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary. The guided tour was quite amusing as well as informative as the guy who took us round was like an …

    ... back to the style that I'm so used to telling in. By lunch time I had given up with the short story and thought I'd play with ideas for something else, this has me thinking about starting a novel that I've been planning. It still requires more planning, but I think that it might benefit from a little spontaneity. Whilst I mulled it over, I made an omelette. If finishing a short story is hard, starting a novel is even harder. You ...

    ... not sure what the waterfalls will look like in the rain?) 2 day trip to Cape Tribulation rainforest, followed by a night in Port Douglas on the way back, road tripping back to Cairns with Amy and Sophie! Then I'm finally doing my PADI open water course after years of wanting to dive! 4 days of diving, first 2 in the pool with lessons, the second 2 days out on the Great Barrier Reed - ...

Day 17..went and checked out some beaches in the morning but the clouds started to pull in, decided to hit the road and head to poured the whole way, 6 hours later we checked in to lane cove river tourist park, headed to the mall as not much to do in the rain. Day 18.. Still raining..had a bit of a late start. ...

    ... It was amazing and really awesome to eat food straight from the ocean.

    Cairns is a really cool city and a great starting (or ending) point of a trip on the East Coast. You can go from Cairns North into the Daintree Rainforest (which is what I did) and see the oldest Rainforest in the world! Definitely go to Cairns, its laid back but has that city living feel, which is a great mix.
