I feel i've neglected this blog somewhat over the past 3 weeks or so, partly due to the fact that i've been ill, but ultimately because it's been awesome. At no point have I felt like more of a backpacker; i swear the population of half of these places we visit consist of us tourist types alone. Where to begin...sydney was great - we met up with some friends that we met in asia, and byron bay was suitably impressive - the tell-tale gusts of copious potions of weed being smoked by majorly chilled out aussies were ever present. Byron Bay was brilliant, particularly a bar called Cheeky Monkeys. Here we got some ridiculous discounts on activities, as a result of our little UK wolfpack partaking in pub games. Fraser Island was pretty decent, driving around the sand dunes in 4WD vehicles and camping out amongst the dingoes, and now we're in Airlie Beach, possibly the most relaxing and luxurious place we've stayed! S'all good. Whitsundays cruise tomorrow!
