    Duck Boat

    October 21, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    A military vehicle? A boat? How about Both!!

    The duck cruise take you on a short journey around a trail and a small river. The guide does a good job of telling entertaining stories.

    My favorite story is about a plant that looks like an ordinary palm frond. The guide took his hat off and hung it on the back of the frond. It has a ton of barbs that dig in and hold on when you try and go against them. Strong enough to easily support the hat. So, if you find yourself caught up in something like this, somehow you're supposed to relax, and slowly back out. At that point, it easily releases and away you go.Read more

    July 22, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Gestern haben wir den letzten Stopp unserer Reise erreicht, wir sind in Carins angekommen. 2500km mit insgesamt 14 Stopps in verschiedenen Städten und Inseln haben wir in einem Monat zurückgelegt.
    Heute morgen ging der Tag für uns schon um 5 Uhr los. Wir sind in den Regenwald gefahren, um dort im Sonnenaufgang die „Giant Swing“ zu machen. Das war eine Art Schaukel bei der man zu Beginn kurz freien Fall hat und dann durch den Regenwald „fliegt“. Aus knapp 50m Höhe ging es in die Tiefe. Von dort zurück in der Stadt Cairns, haben wir uns die Geschäfte angeguckt, waren auf dem „Night Market“ und haben dort Souvenirs gekauft.
