Back in Cairns!!!

Monday, 19 Oct 2015 | Views [213]

  So, I know I said that I would catch back up on this upon my return to Oz, but I've been quite busy with my traineeship and just now have had the time to finally sit down and recap a bit of the last few weeks. First things first, I am ... Read more >

Return to Cairns

Wednesday, 3 Jun 2015 | Views [121]

After a long month and a half away, I'm finally back home in Cairns. She's still just as gorgeous as ever and actually has a few minor changes with different businesses opening up and what not. I didn't sleep much on my red eye flight from Perth, so ... Read more >

Finishing Auckland and Perth

Thursday, 14 May 2015 | Views [122]

Sorry this one took a little bit to get out. I wanted to put it out after I had finished up my stay in Perth. Not like any of you are waiting with baited breath to hear what I've been doing. Trust me, it's not that interesting. Anyway... I finished up ... Read more >

I made it up to Darwin, and surprisingly, the train ride coming up wasn't that bad. I normally like train rides, but the one from Melbourne to Adelaide was a bit boring at points. I managed to get some good sleep on the train actually, and you get much ... Read more >

Alice Springs and Uluru Tour

Sunday, 19 Apr 2015 | Views [137]

So, I managed to get out of the cold in Adelaide to experience the warm in Alice for a few days before it went down to cooler temperatures just like in Adelaide. A couple days it was warmer back at home. My first impressions of Alice were not the best.... Read more >

Adelaide and Kangaroo Island

Sunday, 12 Apr 2015 | Views [142]

Adelaide kind of reminds me of an East coast college town. The museum and art gallery are nice. I had a good time traipsing around in there, especially on a rainy day. I got to explore the downtown area near Rundle Mall. It's got quite a few shops and ... Read more >

Melbourne, Adelaide, Easter

Sunday, 5 Apr 2015 | Views [138]

Well, it was a good thing I came into Melbourne during the comedy festival. I got to see quite a few free shows and have a few good laughs during my short stay here. I had a tour guide on my waterfalls tour that said that people tend to either prefer ... Read more >

Leaving Cairns :(

Tuesday, 31 Mar 2015 | Views [180]

I apologize in advance that this may be a bit of a downer post. I have just left my home in Cairns for Melbourne. It's a bit of culture shock going from such a cute, quaint city to a large metropolis. The worst part was leaving my family of friends that ... Read more >

St. Patrick's Day and other Shenanigans

Monday, 23 Mar 2015 | Views [190]

Well, I celebrated St. Patrick's Day properly for the first time. There are only a few Irish pubs in town, we went to one called PJ O'Brien's. I had walked by earlier in the day and the place was packed inside and out. I'm no one for Guinness, so I ... Read more >

Cyclone Parties!

Monday, 16 Mar 2015 | Views [131]

Time is just going by too fast, I can't believe I'm going to be leaving Cairns in just over 2 weeks. If I play my cards right, I might be back in the fall for a few more months, we'll see how things work out. It was another good week though. We had another ... Read more >

Hot Humid Days

Sunday, 8 Mar 2015 | Views [134]

The week that sleep forgot. We've decided to blame it on the full moon. I talked to so many people that have been sleeping like shit this week. Once our air con kicks on in our room, I usually cool off to a good sleeping temperature. This week, I would ... Read more >

Bithday Shenanigans

Monday, 2 Mar 2015 | Views [117]

Ah the golden birthday week. Thanks to a schedule shift, I was able to book my skydiving trip on my actual day. Winning! It was a fairly early morning, the bus left at 6:30 in the morning to head to Mission Beach, about 2 hours south east along the coast.... Read more >

Reef Trippin'

Monday, 23 Feb 2015 | Views [147]

The weather finally started to clear up a little bit. Friday was finally the time to head out to the reef. I booked a little tour doing snorkeling on the outer reef. The tour was through Compass Cruises, a nice little (apparently) family owned group.... Read more >

Music Withdrawals No Longer

Sunday, 15 Feb 2015 | Views [124]

Quite a nice little week here in Cairns. I'm now picking up some consistent extra paid hours at the hostel, so it's nice to have a little bit of extra walking around money. This also coincided with my move into the larger room at the hostel. It's quite ... Read more >

Monsoon Season

Sunday, 8 Feb 2015 | Views [136]

Hi again everyone. The weeks seem to go by faster and faster. I can't believe I'm already over a third of the way through my time in Cairns. If it's going this fast here, I can only imagine how it will be when I travel the rest of Australia. In a blink ... Read more >

Eve of the Superbowl

Sunday, 1 Feb 2015 | Views [112]

Honestly, the only reason I knew the Superbowl was happening was from people's Facebook feeds and the lovely little advert during 'Constantine' that informed my that Jimmy Fallon would be doing a live show from the venue. I am a bit bummed that I won't ... Read more >

Settling in Cairns

Monday, 26 Jan 2015 | Views [191]

Happy Australia Day everyone! Not too much to do today on this public holiday except check out the events around town. They had some live music out on the Esplanade all afternoon. I snuck by for a few hours to take in some of the festivities and catch ... Read more >

Cairns Week 1

Sunday, 18 Jan 2015 | Views [117]

Hello again everyone. I've officially spent my first week in Cairns and it's been quite the experience. I feel like I'm melting every sinle day since the humidity is so high and the temperature is usually in the low 90s. Heat indexes are ofter around ... Read more >

Gold Coast and Cairns

Sunday, 11 Jan 2015 | Views [210]

Hello friends! So, I left Sydney last week for my old home on the Gold Coast for a few days. The plane ride is very short, just over an hour to or from either destination. It felt good to be back at the old digs again. Surprisingly, there are a few big ... Read more >
