East Coast Road Trip Part 4- Fraser Island to Airlie Beach

So where was I... ah yes, Fraser Island. Monday 14th January: We all woke up with hangovers the next day at 7am. We had to pack up our tents and drive up the beach to Lake Wabby before the tide came in again so we had to forsake breakfast. It was also raining which was not good. Still, we arrived...

Fraser Island! The group... Me, Vic, Christian and Jannina from Germany, Louise from UK, Sabine from Germany, Rachel Keith Andrew Jenny and Neve from Ireland.

East Coast Road Trip Part 2- Surfers Paradise to Rainbow Beach

OK.... so after Surfers Paradise we headed up to Brisbane. And all it did was rain. It was Vic's 30th birthday on 8th Jan so i booked us into a dead posh hotel as a surprise for her. It was really nice, spa pool and sauna, huge room with proper beds and a tv... we were so spoilt after campervanning...

happy new year!

Happy New Year everyone, hope you all celebrated in style! In between Xmas and New Year we headed up to the Blue Mountains for a day. It is amazing that the mountains are only an hour and a bit out of the city as the change in scenery is awesome. We went on a 3 hour canyon hike where you...

A lot has happened since my last entry, which was weeks ago now, so bear with me whilst i bring you up to speed. The day after our Hunter Valley Wine day we moved out of our hotel and into Elliots flat near Glebe. Its a great place and only about 10 mins walk to Central train station. There is...

er – rain?!

Hello again. Sorry its been so long, we have again been busy little bees!  After our day with Russ we had a good Friday over at Bondi. It is a great beach- really wide and great waves, but it is a little bit reminisent of Brighton with all the tourist shops around. Still, its not to be sniffed at....

sydney

We arrived in Sydney at 06.30am last Wednesday. The flight was a pain, we were sat right by the kitchen so it was noisy all night. Still, we checked ourselves into our hotel and slept till lunchtime. After that we had a wander up George street in search of some food. We almost walked to the top by Circular Quay without even...

Forgive me father….

..for it has been a while since my last entry. Apologises all. Electricity on the islands is scarce and the internet cafes charge about twice as much as in Bangkok so internet action has been pretty slow for the last week. I last left you when we arrived on Ko Lanta. We had a great 3 days of sunbathing, eating and...

paradise!

We have finally arrived in Paradise.. ahhh It took us 14 hours to get here mind you. A 5am start in Chaing Mai, a flight from Chiang Mai to Bangkok, another flight from Bangkok to Krabi, a taxi bus and then 2 boats from Krabi to Koh Lanta. But it was worth it. We are staying in Lakwadee Guest House practically on...
