    Wasn't expecting much but it was clean, tidy and a nice place to be. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of fridge space, cookers and even free spices and oil to use. The lounge area was great, had loads of board games and DVDs, plus a BBQ outside. The star couldn't have been more helpful from getting a personal tour and then shown to my room to the drop-offs at the bus station when I left, all in all a great 3 nights spent here, I would definitely recommend!

    This place is absolutely disgusting and feels quite unsafe. I would never stay there again.

    So much walking, Mark nearly divorced me

    Today, we decided to explore Townsville, which seemed like such a good idea at first.... Townsville is a fairly large town, with a few areas worth visiting, that are dotted around with a fairly distance between them. So we set off at about half 10 and headed through town and out to the marina, which was beautiful, and along here for a mile or so. …

    My first full day in Townsville began well, with the news that I'd been reserved a place at a working hostel in Ayr, just 1 hour south of Townsville! The job is mango picking/packing I believe & should help me work towards my 2nd year visa, although I'm not counting my chickens just yet as having a bed reserved doesn't guarantee me a job! I decided …

    Nach meiner doch ziemlich enttäuschenden Zeit in Innisfail war ich jetzt endlich wieder unterwegs! Ein unglaubliches Gefühl von Freiheit erfasste mich. Zum ersten Mal seit meiner Ankunft in Sydney war ich wirklich alleine! Und das bedeutete, dass ich machen konnte, was immer ich wollte: Aufstehen, wann ich will, Essen was ich will, wann ich will, …

    First day of rain :(

    Woke up this morning to the sound of rain clattering against the window and even though I knew it was coming it was still a bit depressing!
    I faffed around for a bit reading, getting ready, having brekkie downstairs and watching TV, all in the hope that it might ease off. Think again!
    I realise now that I do not own a waterproof jacket of …

    Pebbles: Last night spent chatting about music, winning every game we played & betting on the outcome of the world cup aus/eng. (Defs gonna win that money). Thought about going in the sea, but only contemplated it before falling into bed. Woke up today = hungover. Had no idea where i was. Fell out of bed. GREAT START TO THE DAY! After having a …
