Finally Leaving Cairns and Heading South

3 April 2011 2 Comments

As the weather begins to take a turn for the worse here in Cairns, I look back and reflect upon what has been a very good time for me, and I look ahead to what is yet to come.

Being a tropical climate, it is only natural that rain would play it’s part every once in a while, and in all honesty, up until now I have been very lucky with the weather in Cairns. I took a trip to Cape Tribulation where I managed to see two crocodiles in the Daintree River. The tour also showed us to some thick rainforest, and the weather in these parts is typically temperamental. We swam in the Mossman Gorge and visited nice beaches. It was a great day, but it is very easy to see just how quickly the weather can turn here.

I have also had the pleasure of meeting some really incredible people here, especially in the hostel, and I am sure I will keep in contact with most. At least I hope I do. People can really make a place, no matter how good or bad a place is. And the people here have certainly made this one of my favourite places yet.

Leaving a place is always hard, especially having made so many good friends, but alas, I have to move on, and with the sale of my car back in the UK, I now have some money to play with. My next stop will be Townsville where I hope to go across to Magnetic Island, but the weather is proving to be a problem, with road closures South of Townsville due to flooding. I would like to see the Island without the presence of rain if possible, so it might mean biding my time for a few days until the bad weather passes.

Hopefully the Whitsunday Islands will be soon, – weather permitting – and I can take a sailing trip to the islands and snorkel the Great Barrier Reef. All I hope is that the weather clears up a little.

Join me again soon where hopefully I will have had many more great experiences, take care loyal readers.
