Where I stayed
After 4hrs we arrived in Brisbane and trekked up to our hostel - they're definitely getting more expensive as we're heading south. Dropped our bags (literally) and then headed into the city where Liz wanted to buy an MP3 player. Well, we're not the most technologically-minded gals you'll find, and Liz then spent 2 infuriating hours on the internet trying to work out how to download music onto it. We failed. Can't think what else we did that day, probably just mooched about.
Weds (2nd) I hired out a bike for the day in order to see as much of the city as possible as we were thinking about heading off the next day
That night we hit the town having bumped into some guys we'd met in Airlie Beach. All good fun as you can imagine, and witnessed another wet t-shirt competition, but this was much more tame. I regret to say I got pretty merry and apparently was saying I'd take part if the prize was 500 dollars again, but mercifully I found out it was only a trip to Fraser Island on offer and so refrained from utterly embarrassing myself.
Thurs (3rd) was feeling rather hungover and realised I'd managed to drop my passport on the floor when I'd returned my bike the previous day (it had been the deposit). Luckily for me a very kind guy had noticed and rung my hostel to let me know. Ran back into the city to pick it back up, thanking him profusely before belting it back in order to catch the bus to Byron Bay. All good though - mother please don't worry about me!!
