Where I stayed
We took the bus to Surfer’s Paradise where we met Shaun (Candice’s cousins friend) and him and his roommate put us up. We had a good night out on the town –he knew the owners of this awesome pizza place where we got an awesome deal then he showed us a few other bars in town. There is a place there that is known to have "Canadian people & things" there so they actually have Clamato juice there
Candice and I ended up skipping out on our kayaking adventure in Noosa Heads. So we enjoyed the apartment life and were able to go our laundry and chill out for a day. We watched the Montreal game at 9am here –was a bit weird watching a live game at that time. It rained all day in Surfers so we just watched movies. Felt good.
We then caught the bus up to Noosa Heads on Saturday morning. It is a small town on the water that is gorgeous. We hung out at the beach in the afternoon and got some swimming in. The water was so calm and you could see the fish swimming beneath you.
We arrived in Hervey Bay on Sunday, where we met another Canadian from Vancouver and 2 Norwegian’s who travelled with us to Fraser Island. It was a self-drive 4x4 adventure for 3 days where we went to the largest sand island in the world
Kyle has gone home now and Charlene and Lauren leave tomorrow. Candice and I are taking an overnight bus up the coast to Airlie Beach where we leave on the 29th for a 2 day/2 night catamaran adventure in the Whitsunday’s, part of the Great Barrier Reef. I am so excited to have someone else cook for me on a boat and snorkel there! Things have been going great but the speed of the trip will be slowing down, which will be nice.
Hope everything is good back where it is HOT I hear!! Although I can’t complain about the +25 today and chilling in Australia!
