Where I stayed
We're currently at mission beach. It's meant to be an amazing place to come and do nothing, or do everything, if you're up for it!
The weather has turned tropical. i.e. it's rained all day, but that was fine as we went white water rafting!
It was a full day tour on the 'Tully River', which is meant to be THE place to do it, in Australia and it really was amazing. We spent four hours on the river going down some massive rapids. Me and amy were both at the front of the raft and they took loads of photos as we went down. This means we have got some brill pictures of us rafting, which will be uploaded shortly!
Towards the end of the trip we had the option to go down a rapid on our arses. I went first and was slightly drowned by the water, as it pulled me under. Luckily I surfaced, so all was good. Amy was next. She was really brave, but in her state of extreme concentration forgot to breath...fail. She got pulled under for what felt like 30 seconds and surfaced after having swallowed half of the Tully River. She was a little shaken up after the partial drowning, but she's laughing about it now!
Leaving Australia on Friday, which is scary. I can't believe we've been here for nearly a month. Starting to plan our time in NZ now, seeing what we fancy doing.
The plan for the rest of the week is to travel up to the rainforest at cape tribulation, where there is no doubt that I will be burnt and be eaten to death, but apparently it's one of the things you must see whilst in Queensland.
Going to have a couple of nights in Cairns aswell.
