Haven't Left Yet

2 weeks before we have to move out of our House (it's sold), then another week of travelling 2 hours every day so the kids can go to school and then our final week will be back in Cairns for the kids to say goodbye to their friends. We will leave Cairns on Monday the 10th of September. So much...

One More for the Road

Well i am doing one more post before leaving. Just put EVERYTHING on the bike for the first time and I think it weighs 100 lbs. That is with only one MSR Drom Bag full. But it all fits and is super well balanced so far so we will see. I spent the day on the Great Barrier Reef and it...

Last post before the ride

Hi All, I'm using notepad on my iPhone and my rubber keyboard to make this posting. This will be my way on the trip and it actually works pretty well! I am in Cairns now (pronounced CANS) and I have a large private room at a hostel for only 39 a night! Better than Motel 6. I slept...

"Cans"

We went to a rainforest and drove through it on an amphibious vehicle, an army duck, so we could see everything from both land and water. We learned a lot of interesting facts about how nature interacts to maintain a balance. While we were there we were treated to an aboriginal show, including...

Wow! What a fun-filled, BUSY past two days! Yesterday morning we got up early and got ready to head out on the reef! My 2nd time, Kelly's first! We took a different boat/tour this time and I much enjoyed it because there were WAY less people and the staff were AMAZING. Kelly scuba dived...

What a day! This morning, I was in Brisbane saying goodbye to Trevor and Tina. And NOW I'm sitting on a computer in a hostel in Cairns. What a change in the swing of things! Weather, my home, EVERYTHING. A great big thanks to Tina and Trevor who drove us to the airport this morning. :) And an...

Go Home!

My last day of my travels! Wow. It's been great. The whole thing. Absolutely great. Today was my last full day so I did something a bit special - I went hang-gliding. Well, I tried. I met my instructor, Kevin, on the top of a Cliff overlooking the sea, and we got the glider prepared and ran...

to Oz!

After spending one last night at the Bluewater Lodge - where I got somehow managed to get a double room for the price of a dorm, since they'd overbooked - I caught my morning flight to Cairns, via Sydney. Nik would be arriving in Cairns before me, having left the day previously and, I found...

Mouralyan Harbour to Cairns via Fitzroy and Green Island

The weather is still crap but it's time to move on, we stick our nose out of the harbour to see how the sea is and surprisingly it's not too bad so off we go. Fitzroy Island is some 30 miles away and Tess is still a bit fragile so post haste is on the cards, after 5 hours of motor sailing we...
