Great Barrier or Bust

It's almost 8 p.m. here on Friday night (5 a.m. Thursday in Texas).  I woke up this morning to rain, which did not bode well for my snorkeling trip.  Got on the huge boat, which started out smooth but then eventually hit rain and really choppy waters ... Read more >

Arrived in Cairns (or "Cayyyynes" as Aussies would say it) this afternoon.  I almost felt like I was flying home when I was on the plane from Sydney.  This vacation is actually pretty exhausting (not in the mocking "whoa sitting on the ... Read more >

11:52 a.m. (close to 9 p.m. Houston time) in Sydney at the YHA, which honestly seems pretty overrated and not in the nicest location, but I paid for 3 days, so I gotta stay.  The shuttle ride from the airport was like a grand tour of Sydney's warehouse ... Read more >
