After Hervey Bay we left for Airlie Beach, where we met Susanna and Benedicte, and went sailing on the Whitdundays. We had three fantastic days and we feel privileged to get to see a place as beautiful as Whitehaven beach. We also went snorkeling on Great Barrier Reef and saw Elvis the Fish, a meter long gray fish swimming around. Cool!
Sunburnt and satisfied we headed for Mission beach, a rather quiet place. We recharged our batteries and had some chocolate mousse before we decided to go rafting, which was definitely one of our better decisions. We went down the Tully river, did flip-overs, cliff-jumps, fighting(with the other boats, we won) and had a magnificent day!
As Sanna and Ben only had a few nights left in Australia, we went to Cairns, where we are now. S&B has left, and we are looking for something Australian to do for Australia Day. Lauren suggests cricket, but we'll see... Leaving Cairns for Brisbane on Saturday, can't wait to meet up with some of the random people we've met on our adventure. Life's great!
