Very tired after lots of travelling!!! Did lots of boring hanging around at Darwin airport at 2am waiting for my connecting flight to Cairns at 5am! I was very pleased when the coffee shop opened!

I arrived at Gilligan's Backpackers Hostel around 10am and had to dump my stuff as I couldn't check in until 2pm. So on went the bikini and shades and I headed for the pool for my first taste of Australian sunshine!! It was bliss.

I wasn't meeting Jen until 1pm so I had a wander around town to get my bearings and see the sights. I went to the lagoon which overlooked the sea and took some pictures of the marina. Everywhere was so beautiful with the sun beaming down.

1 o'clock arrives and it's time to be reunited with my Jen! For those of you who don't know Jen is my very best friend from University, my flatmate, workmate, playmate!! We hadn't seen each other in nearly 2 years due to work and Jen having travelled for the past 8 months. So to say we were very excited about this would be an understatement. 

 I waited at bus terminal 15 for the Grayhound to arrive, and there she was with a bag bigger than she, looking around like a lost puppy as I hid behind a tree! I ran to her, big hug and tears were shed! It felt so great to be back together and about to embark on our amazing travelling adventure down the east coast of Australia.

We didn't do much in Cairns except sunbathe by the lagoon, party hard and catch up on everything there was to catch up on (which was a lot), and of course reminisce about past events, which made us laugh a lot!
