Location: Cairnes, Australia

MapHello Everyone,

Hope you are all ok! We have arrived safely in Cairnes. The flight went really quick because i managed to sleep for most of it. We could see the Great Barrier Reef from the plane which looked really nice. We have a really nice hostel with really friendly people. This is the first hostel that we booked that we have actually managed to stay in. All the rooms look like beach huts and our room is a raised hut which at the moment we have to ourselves. We are about a 5 min walk from town where there are loads of shops too look in and there seems to be quite a few bars and restaurants. With our hostel we get a free evening meal for each night that we stay. We get this at a local restaurant - but we are not sure if this is going to be nice or not! So fingers crossed because we are sick of pasta! We have also booked a few things to do. Tommorow we are going to Mission beach as long as the weather is good. Friday morning we leave early for the rainforest where hopefully we will get a chance to see crocodiles and we are staying in the rainforest for Friday night arriving back at the hostel on Saturday morning! Don't worry Mum we are staying in a hostel in the rainforest! Then we have booked scuba diving for Monday. We get a dive with an instructor and then we get to do some snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef. We spend the day out on the boat and we also get lunch and go in a glass bottom boat. So we have quite a bit planned and a lot of early mornings but we are both quite excited. I will update again when we have done it all! Speak to you all soon. Feel free to message me guys! Lots of love Claire X X X X X X
