    Yes we did it!

    Yesterday in Australia

    Heute haben wir tatsächlich eine Wanderung zu dem Figur 8 Pool im Royal National Park gemacht. Obwohl man konnte es wohl eher Bergsteigen oder Dschungel Wanderung nennen. Nach 2 Stunden auf nicht wirklich befestigten Wegen über Stöckern,Steinen und Büschen sind wir angekommen und durften natürlich den ganzen Weg mit 260 Höhenmetern auf nur wenigen Kilometern auch wieder zurück bewältigen. Der Muskelkater wir sich in den nächsten Tagen wohl bemerkbar machen. 🙈Read more

    Airlie Beach, Australien

    September 18 in Australia

    Wir haben jetzt eine Woche in der schönen Hafenstadt Airlie Beach verbracht. Hier gab es wie auch schon in Cairns eine Lagoone mit Blick aufs Meer. Heute sind wir über den Markt geschlendert und ab Freitag geht es dann auf die traumhaften Whitsunday Islands.😍

    Conway Beach, Australien

    Yesterday in Australia

    Der Besuch am Conway Beach war nicht ganz so erfolgreich wie erhofft. Allerdings haben wir im George's Diner einen Leckeren Milchshake trinken können. Es war total schön dort, und man kam sich fast schon so vor als wäre man in den USA. 😂😊

    Taylorwood Tourist Park

    Yesterday in Australia

    Auf diesem Campingplatz haben wir die letzte Woche verbracht. Es war sehr ruhig und rustikal, aber auch mal eine gute Abwechslung. Bei der langen Zeit die wir dort verbracht haben, waren wir froh mehrere Unterhaltungsmöglichkeiten zu haben.😊 Ab Freitag geht's dann auf die Insel, und danach Brisbane zum arbeiten.

    There is something coming!

    July 11 in Australia

    Sooo our new accommodation, the calypso inn hostel is beautiful ! We are in love with the pancakes :D

    Timtams- my 💀 - I love them - how can they be that delicious 🤤

    Getting healthy habits is hard so we just went to Burger King or hungry jacks in Australia 🇦🇺 it's worth it so - don't have a bad feeling about eating there at all :D

    There were still two highlights this week :D
    First it was hard - we were looking for some work and all the things we had to do :D

    I found a job over the weekend in a food van :D i am excited :D

    Vanessa booked her PADI- she is going to make her diving license !

    And me ?! - I just booked a tour - 2 days 1 night on a boat a couple minutes ago :D - I am going to snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef 😍😍

    Tomorrow , our plan is to visit some beaches a bit more far away from cairns :)

    It was a beautiful day ! Cairns is such a pretty city 🌃
    By going 10 minutes, we just arrived at the huge mall of Cairns. Then we were the first time 🛒 at Coles where we had to pay with the Australian money :D - confusing 😂
    There is an Esplanada lagoon where we went swimming 🏊🏊 It was so awesome ! In the evening we met our Canadian roommate , drank a bit of wine and talked until the night crashed in.

    Also the people are so lovely !

    Crocodile Dundee

    July 31 in Australia

    We went to see the jumping Crocodiles today which was ok but I was honestly a little bit scared,especially when the woman in charge of our boat announced that we had no power steering only 15 mins into an hour long trip!!
    The Crocs are attracted to the boats engines and come along side, the woman in charge of the “no power steering boat” entices them with a chunk of pork on the end of a stick and waits until they have jumped out of the water 3 times before giving them the meat!
    We then had lunch at Adelaide river, which runs from Adelaide to Darwin, the girl serving us was from Riddlesden believe it or not 😀 We then visited the Adelaide River War Cemetery before heading back to Darwin.

    Darwin City Tour

    August 2 in Australia

    We decided to spend the morning booking tours for the next two days then took a half day city tour in the afternoon. Eric the driver picked us up promptly and was particularly good, if not a little droll at times. We crammed in an awful lot.....and it gave us a real taste of the place.
    •St Monica’s Cathedral
    •Cairns Museum
    •Flecker Botanic Garden
    •Cairns lookout over the city
    •Barron Gorge National Park •Andamooka. finally
    •Palm Cove
    We were in a mini bus with about 15 other people which meant that David had to be sociable and talk to strangers....after a slow start he got into his stride and the afternoon went relatively smoothly! There were many highlights but Acker Bilk music piped through the sound system on the way back was particularly good!
