    Day 47: Ride to paradise

    September 5, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    The Tour is called Ride to Paradise and it feels like Paradise when you are waking up next to the beach on the former residence of a billionair. This place has it all, bubble bath, swimming pool, tennis court, biljard table, surf boards, kajaks and more stuff to play with. We came here with this red speed boat a "wild cat". An awesome boat that also cost a few million and goes quite fast. The advantage is that the ride is not that long, the disadvantage is when it splashes in is that the wind makes it really cold but I liked that actually, feels like home in Zandvoort :). We went with a little hangover around 1400 to the Billionairs Paradise and explored the what we tought was an Island. But in fact it looked remote but wasn't. I sat in the hot bubble bath talking with 2 couples from New Castle. It's fun how many different people you meet but with so many common interests. After that I used a kajak to explore and see the sun set from the sea. Something I loved to combine and were else than in Paradise ;-). I missed the shower at our hut and ended up showering in the middle of the forrest, a little lost on my way back but I made it without stepping on some dangerous animal ;-).Diner was fabulous and dessert even better. Long time ago that I ate this good since all the hostel, pub, bar and club food. After diner we had another surprise, this awesome guy Billy was out hunting for a nice snake or spider to show it to us. He came back within 45minutes with this snake on the end of a broom. He said that this snake didn't like to be picked up that much and was acting angry. He said that it was probably a python on steroids because it was so big. The moment that he stepped on the porch to show us the snake from closeby. Henry ( the other guide that actually is responsible for our well being) yelled from inside the mansion: "get that the hell away from here". The tone and the fact that he is Australian ment that he was pritty serious. Australians are used to dangerous animals and not scared easily. Billy was really enthusiastic at first but when he heard Henry he kept his eyes on the snake without blinking. It appeared to be a Taipan, the fourth most deadly snake of the world or the Inland Taipan the deadliest in Australia. Not a good snake to play with so he run off and set it loose on the beach (sadly near our huts but ok doesn't matter ;-) ). We double checked where we placed our feet anyway :p. Good night dangerous but fun world ;-).Read more

    Luxury Villa

    May 20, 2017 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    Um halb 2 ging ich zu meinem Meeting Point in Airlie Beach. Hier lernte ich schon einige Leute mit denen ich meine Whitsunday Tour machen werde. Wie immer viele Deutsche. ☺ Nach dem Check In hieß es Platz nehmen auf unserem Speedboot. Nach einer kleinen Fahrt kamen wir in unserem Luxus Resort an. Wir waren die einzigen Gäste und die Villa steht auf einem sehr einsamen weitläufigen Gelände. Nach dem wir unser Luxus Hostel Zimmer bezogen hatten, erkundeten wir unser Zuhause für die nächsten 2 Nächte. Es gab einen Tennisplatz, einen Pool, einen Hot Pool, eine Tischtennisplatte, Kajak Boote, einen privaten Strand, ein riesiges Haupthaus, Außen- Badewannen und Duschen und vieles mehr. Wir wurden die ganze Zeit mit Leckereien verwöhnt, an dem ersten Abend bekamen wir ein super leckeren Hecht und am zweiten ein tolles Curry. Einen solchen Luxus hatte ich nicht erwartet. 😀Read more
