It’s the Final Touchdown

Calypso Hostel

A big hello from down under, we have finally arrived at our first destination, Cairns, Australia. After about 3 or 4 flights we finally got here. At the moment we are trying desperately to shake off some jet lag and find out whats where in this tourist town. The weather is a bit cloudy but I can’t stress how humid it is! The wife beater is out in full force :p poor Trish… haha…

Its a nice hostel with a pool and bar with some grub in the mornings and evenings. It’s about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Cairns too, but they offer a free bus service to the center ever half hour.

We touched down at 8am Cairns time and have desperately battling jet lag since then. It’s looking tough at the moment but I’m sure we’ll win 😛 although we just woke up from an accidental 3 hour nap… Plans for the rest of the day consist of a strict rule of no more sleep before bed time, go for a swim, and look into where we are going after our 5 day diving course we start on Thursday. So for now, I bid you g’day
