There is something interesting that comes with the thought of tomorrow. Anything is possible in the future. As the sun begins to set and cast it's orange and golden hues over the trees and roofs of the neighbourhood, a familiar feeling comes sweeping over me. It takes me back to when I was a child … Continue reading The possibility of tomorrow
After the inevitable travel depression sets in after an intensely satisfying adventure, it's time to prepare the next adventure. Unfortunately, I've run out of money. As much as I don't like money, it would be naive to assume we don't need it. It's true that we don't need as much as we think we do, … Continue reading Why losing my public transport card was the best thing that could have happened
After my hostie experience with Diver's Den (if you missed it, you can read about it here) I was really looking forward to my liveaboard tour because I had an idea of what to expect. I also hadn't been diving in a while so it served as a good refresher. The tour I did was … Continue reading My first night dive ever and it was on the Great Barrier Reef
If I didn't have any prearranged plans, I would have stayed in the Daintree for longer than I did stay, but my goodness was I looking forward to diving the Great Barrier Reef! And even better than that, I did it for free! (Mostly). Before I arrived in Cairns, I had looked up a few … Continue reading Diving the Great Barrier Reef for free, you say?
Waking up, I was surprised at how energetic I felt given how much we had had to drink last night and how few hours of sleep I got. We were all woken up during the early hours of the morning by bats in a nearby tree returning from their night of partying. Today was the … Continue reading My ride up to Cape Tribulation and the Daintree rainforest (3/3)
I didn't sleep very well that night and I think the reason was because I wasn't able to scope out the area properly before I set up camp as I had arrived after dark and I wasn't sure if there could be anything lurking in the bushes. The thing I was most afraid about was … Continue reading My ride up to Cape Tribulation and the Daintree rainforest (2/3)
The day started as brilliantly as I wish everyday would start. I felt fit, happy, content and grateful for everything that had happened in the past to get me to this exact point in my life. I had just woken up, had breakfast and put my unnecessary items in storage for the next few days. … Continue reading My ride up to Cape Tribulation and the Daintree rainforest (1/3)
Let me take you through the ending part of my trip as told by Michael Eva. I have a wonderful nights sleep the night before, knowing I have a minuscule 80km to cover compared to the 1 920km I've covered leading up to this point. I wake up bright and early, feeling extremely good, feeling … Continue reading How am I supposed to feel at the end of it all?
The only problem with getting a cheap ferry ticket is that you have to be on the first ferry out which leaves at 7:05am. It wasn't actually a problem because I've become used to waking up earlier to begin cycling before it gets too hot. For some reason, I couldn't fall asleep the night before … Continue reading There is definitely something Magnetic about this island!
Do I feel bad or guilty about catching a train the 100km to Townsville? No, I don't. I knew that it was much safer if I caught the train instead of cycling because if anything had to happen to the tyre while I was on the road, I would be stuffed unless I could hitchhike … Continue reading All tyred out (pun intended)
