I’d rather sum it all up and show you the photos, because photos say more than 1.000 words, right? Here we go!

Worked out with 10L of water; Went sailing to the Whitsunday islands; Drove all the way to the top of different mountains to enjoy the view; Finally reached the wet tropics with all of its advantages like the wonderful rainforests but also its disadvantages such as the mosquitos and the heat in the early mornings; Handed out our resumes to every living object with no result; Left our canned soups in a store and bought all four of them again before we found them, so we ended up with 8 cans of soup filling all of the drawers in the campervan; Strolled through every day or night market we could possibly find including the famous Kuranda markets and the night markets in Cairns; Flew from Cairns back to Sydney; I cured my homesickness by buying food and drinks my parents or grandma used to buy for me when I was little such as bubble tea, hello panda cookies, lychee flavoured jellies, bean cakes and such; Visited art galleries filled with amazing works from aboriginals; Drove on a road along the beach; Bought colorbooks out of boredom and started drawing like a 4 year old for days; Watched 2 films at a drive in theatre/open air cinema from the front seats of our van; Went to see the Barron falls; Bought DIY Henna and had it painted on my body; Saw how thousands of bats woke up in the evening and fly away from their trees; Stayed at a motel; Did the Tjapukai experience including self painting your boomerang, make jewellery, learn about the weapons and medicines back in the days and learn how to throw a speer and boomerang; Drunk out of a fresh coconut for the first time in my life; Had a tour guide led us through the Opera house; Took photos with the huge Christmas tree at Marin Place; Went into an enormous snow globe; Walked through the Botanic Gardens; Visited the aquarium; Took photos in a photo booth; Went to the Art Gallery of Sydney; Had lunch and diner from different stands in Chinatown; Travelled by ferry; Experienced Boxing day.

Hope y’all had a wonderful christmas!

I ended my last post telling you that it was high time for us to sleep in our own house on wheels and so we did. The first day and night was a bit of a struggle of us, because we both had never slept in one before and simply didn’t know what we were supposed to do with for example our bed. Do we decide to build it up again every single night, so that we’ve got more space left to walk and sit on, or do we just leave it all as it is every morning and accept the challenge of doing everything on 1 square metre? Obviously, the lazy ass people we are, we decided to choose the one last mentioned and it’s going pretty well actually.

Whilst driving from Noosa to Hervey Bay, we got to see Australia’s funny street signs for the first time. The sign said ‘Playing Trivia keeps you awake’. We firstly assumed that it meant that drivers had to pull over to play a game of Trivia as soon as they felt tired, but it turned out that there were actually street signs following the other with questions and answers!

There didn’t seem to do much in Hervey Bay, so after visiting the pier, we decided to go for a quick run on the beach. If you know us well, you know that we’re not quite the people that go for a run often, just like we thought. For some reason though, we ran a lot further than we thought we’d done, so by the time we wanted to go back to our car, we couldn’t find it anymore. We were completely lost without cell phones nor money and the road seemed to be endless. Due to the run that had partly taken place among the road and partly on the beach, we also had no clue on whether we had past this yellow building or had to go the opposite direction to get back. Obviously, after a while, we happily found our car back :)

The next stops we made were in Fraser Island to see its magical beaches, lake and creek; Agnes Water/Town of 1770 where we conquered the stormy weather and cooked our greenest –as in containing the most vegetables- meal ever; Rockhampton to visit the Botanic Gardens, its small zoo, the movie theatre where we watched Spectre and to admire the view from the top of Mount Archer; Yeppoon to relax on the beach and to visit the Capricorn Caves; Mackay to visit the wonderful waterfall lakes in which we swam and last but not least, our current destination Airlie Beach, from where we’ll go on a two-day tour to Whitsundays.

484 km to Cairns left..
