I'm in Airlie Beach now, which is the start-off point for sailing in the Whitsundays. Daniele and I got back today after 2 days and 2 nights of luxurious sleep in a tiny bed. I'm not kidding, I slept really well, I think it was the rocking of the boat. We went snorkelling, suntanned, very stressful, I'm sure you all feel bad for me.
But I had been very tired prior to that because of our "safari" (more like camping trip) on Fraser Island, out of Hervey Bay. We were lucky enough to be placed in a great group of 9 other people (Irish, English and Israeli) and had a great time running around the island, drinking, and sleeping on the floor... well, that part sucked. But still lots of fun, saw lots of neat things, but no dingos. :( We were warned when driving on the beach to watch out for landing planes, which we actually did see.
I think we're going white-water rafting over the next couple of days in Mission Beach. We've picked up another Canadian, Ashley, who is Saskatchewanian. Also made friends with lots of Irish. There's a lot of Swedes here too, but they're really hard to understand. The weather is getting progressively hotter, but I can't complain, because I'm missing winter.
Hope to hear from you all soon! Sorry I can't reply to your emails personally, but internet access is scarce and expensive.
