Flag of Australia  , Queensland,
Sunday, April 18, 2010

The last 2 days we have been traveling around in our hire car and have seen a lot (0.2% of Australia) 

On Saturday we woke up and the rain came down like there was no tomorrow...so we decided to go for a drive to Port Douglas, the road to PD is like the road to the Gross Glockner in Austria and is not for the people with road-sickness...

Once we arrived the sun came out and we had a walk through the market...but after 10 minutes we decided to go to the pharmacy first to get some sun-cream because it was burning under our shirts. This was a relieve to my back but I needed something else and we bought some hats.

We went back after 3 hours and relaxed at our apartment and decided to go for dinner, we went for dinner at Annie's upstairs which was really nice and were I had my first Crocodile meat...Lynds enjoyed a Paella with Barramundi (=australian fish)....which is really nice.

Yesterday morning we went to Pourt Douglas again to activate our bank accounts...once we arrived at the ANZ bank the lady was really nice and helpful and we left an hour later whit our bank-cards and a savings account (4.5% interest) 

Left Pourt Douglas with something to eat for the way we headed to Daintree, north of Pourt Douglas...Jeffrey thought he had seen something on the map to discover some falls...we ended up between the sugar cane fields near Miallo in the middle of nowhere...roads were flooded so we went back after taking some pictures...

+  Jeffrey saw some birds in the tree next to our apartment (these were cousins of Batman and as big as seagulls)

Cheers for now ... tonight we will update again after our excursion
