4.15am hits and our shuttle bus waits for us outside Victors' in the frosty air. The journey to the airport takes an hour from Oakhurst and is well worth the $80. We check in and find a comfy seat to wait for our 6.30 flight to Cairns. I don't know how Lauren sleeps on a plane but she's out for the count and I'm in 'grouchy flight mode' once again.

After lunch we weren't feeling great so we watched a film at the cinema, a romcom starring Cameron Diaz. It was actually better than I expected although my expectations were low! The rest of the afternoon was spent at ...
... but nothing had been handed in. I unpacked and re-packed my backpack several times but there was no sign. At night, I noticed that on reception was the same lady who booked my accommodation from the night before, so I decided to check one final time before ringing up to report it missing. She went into the lost property box which was locked away in their cupboard..and there is was, my red Santander card. I've never been so happy to see a credit card in my whole ...
