Cairns, Queensland

September, 20, 2014

Cairns, Queensland, Australia. Where the public pool meets the sea which meets the sailboard which meets the mountains. Not a bad spot. It’s low tide now hence the arid sea. It’ll fill back up in a few hours time. Out of all the cities I have been to in Australia.. Cairns is officially my favorite place. The green forested hills that surround the city as well as the much larger CBD (Central Business District aka “downtown”), even when comparing to Perth, makes it quite appealing. The place is buzzing but not too chaotic. There is stuff to do each night and the place I am staying at really sold it for me. Everyone upon arrival was going out of their way to welcome and introduce themselves and integrate you into the “group” of people staying here. It was unlike any welcoming I’ve had in Australia. I had a great first night getting to know everyone and it just feels right so today I am starting to look for jobs. I try my best to land a bar gig so I can socialize and still have a fun experience while working/living here in Australia. Now, I just have to land a job which I have high hopes about accomplishing. Wish me luck!

Goodbye Darwin

September 17, 2014

Darwin you’ve been fun to say the least. However, it’s time I unfortunately break away from the West Coast route and all the people I keep re-meeting up with along the way. Thanks for all the memories, you know who you are.. you’ve made it an incredible experience.┬áNow it’s onwards to the East Coast.. QUEENSLAND HERE I COME!!

Darwin Nights

September 16, 2014

I love these two. Dan (England) I met back on Monkey Mia and have ran into him many times since. I ran into him in Exmouth afterwards.. and then when I was boarding the bus from Port Hedland to Broome, he was sitting there on the bus! We had fun in Broome where we met Miriam (Holland) and all found a ride to Darwin together via the Gibb River Road. I am truly going to miss them as we make great travel partners in crime!
