    ... so colourful and the fish were super pretty. Our guide even let us touch a sea anemone! It was really weird because the ends were very sticky and would stick to your fingers. We also got to touch a giant clam and it freaked me out so much when it started to close.

    For the rest of the day, we did a bit more snorkelling and then went in a semi submersible submarine and we got to see lots of sea turtles and more fish. It was such an amazing experience! Thankfully, ...

    ... out for a walk along the beautiful long and wide Cairns waterfront boardwalk, when I came across four rangers who appeared to be pruning a palm. People were gathered around at a respectful distance, and the palm fronds dropped to the ground. But then a slither caught my eye. Turns out a 4m phython was dropped out of the tree, and then stick-handled into ...

    ... massage my tootsies. The most interesting part of this whole experience is that I was alongside 5 men waiting for their massages too! Grabbed some grub at the food market...Chinese yum yum then spent a bit of time listening to two brave young boys on sax and one on the trumpet. Very moving. Well done lads! Now I'm back at the hostel for an early-ish night as I have to be up early to go and be amazed at the Great Barrier Reef. Woop! Have I mentioned ...

    ... and shoes! A very odd feeling but the best way to keep clothes warm and dry for when we piled back in and onto the next site.

    Unsurprisingly for the English (although much to the shock of the Americans and Aussies) we had never swum in a lake before! Surprisingly fun and natural feeling, as long as you don't think about crocs! (There are of course, no crocs). We saw the waterfall made famous by Peter Andre's Mysterious Girl and Herbal Essences adverts, and ...

    The Great Barrier Reef

    ... see the reef. The view was not great and the puke bags that were left down there soured the mood. Pun intended! The boat ride back was so much better. There were bumps but not nearly as bad as before! Once back on land we cleaned up and headed out to the German pub for dinner. We had to turn in early because the flight to Sydney was at 515am and we were getting picked up at 330am. Ugh! We were just talking about how we have been here 6 days and have see so much ...
