Cairns to Brisbane

sunny 35 °C


We have made it to Australia! Very exciting. We have swam/snorkelled part of the great barrier reef, we also did a learning dive thingy at the reef (very cool). Have seen some nemo's, and saw a turtle but only from the boat : ( We have also been white water rafting and seen some of the most beautiful beaches. To those of you who haven't been here - it really is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. I have never seen sea and sand so clear (just to make you all jealous).

Happy Christams to everyone! Hope you all have a lovely christmas and new year. I cannot believe itsnearly christmas, it's just too hot here! All the local kids seem to be on summer holiday now which is really confusing.

We are off to see Fraser island tomorrow (as recommended) which we are very excited about and then should hopefully be off to Brisbane afterwards.

Our little campervan is doing well, although we have racked up about 2000km in 5 days so we have spent quite a bit of time on the road. Our little island seems so small compared to this country, we think notts to cornwall is a fair drive and we have done twice that in a day.

Happy belated Christmas and New Year!! Hope you celebrated in style! Summer over Christmas - how I do miss them!!! I know it may be weird for you both but totally normal to me :) Its been super rainy over here - so nothing new lol. Robbie and I got to spend our first ever Christmas day alone together which was great! And I cooked my first ever turkey...was very nervous but Robbie soon gobbled it up and still alive from what I can tell (laying on the sofa "watching" a movie ;) )

So jealous about the barrier reef...guess you found Nemo! Can't wait to see all your pics! Love you both :) xx
