Location: Cairns, Australia

MapHi everyone, we both hope your all well!

We arrived in Cairns not 5 hours ago from Perth and it's 33C at 9.30am with 90% humity, it's going to take some getting used to so today we're going to pitch our tent and then sit by the pool at our hostel and just chill!

We've really enjoyed our time in Western Australia, Simon's even missing work at the Overlander, who'd have thought Simon would ever miss work! Rottnest Island was the highlight, especially the cheeky little quokka's and Perth had the most random people, it's a beautiful, clean city filled with deadbeats, hobo's, and crazy people which made our stay even more memorable.

When we arrived at our hostel this morning the owner promptly started trying to sell us various excursions. We now have the difficult job of trying to decide between scuba diving, skydiving, white water rafting, rainforest tours, bungy jumping etc etc! Due to Simon's morbid fear of heights he will not be partaking in the skydiving/bungy jumping however it looks as though Emma may throw herself from 14000ft, oh dear.

Must be off now, the warm blue water's calling but drop us a line guys and we'll let you know how our adventure sports go!

Love Emma and Simon
