Riding the Scenic Rail & Skyrail to Kuranda and back This week Conor and I decided to do two things that we had wanted to do for ages: the Kuranda Scenic Rail and the Skyrail. The scenic rail runs from Cairns to Kuranda and back, or you can do what we did and hop on… Continue reading Riding the Scenic Rail & Skyrail to Kuranda and back
A Lovely Day Out at Cape Tribulation Last week Conor and I decided to take a day trip to beautiful Cape Tribulation in the lush Daintree Rainforest, just a short drive from our home. A day in the Daintree is a must for anyone visiting Port Douglas and the surrounding area. The drive from Port… Continue reading A Lovely Day Out at Cape Tribulation
Crystal Cascades, Cairns There are few things I love doing more on my days off than chasing waterfalls, although I haven't found as much time for it as I would like to recently. Conor and I visited the Crystal Cascades a few months ago when when we were looking to kill some time in Cairns.… Continue reading Crystal Cascades, Cairns
Flying with Singapore Airlines For my recent return trip from Cairns to Manchester, I flew with Singapore Air, economy class. I chose them because they were the cheapest option, however I had heard good things. My journey consisted of two flights each way. Cairns - Singapore takes around 6-7 hours, and Singapore - Manchester takes… Continue reading Flying with Singapore Airlines

I thought it just seemed… Continue reading Introductory Dives on The Great Barrier Reef
Going home plans After almost three years in Australia, I'm finally heading home to England for a five week visit. The funny thing about the five week time frame is that it seems like a really long time to be away from Port Douglas and from Conor, yet when I try to make all of… Continue reading Going home plans
Bloomfield Track & Archers Point The dancing flames of a campfire...The clear, starry night sky...the earth's natural elements are so beautiful, so pure. There's something so relaxing about being out in nature. So Conor and I had been speaking with some friends for a while about going camping and we finally did it. Unfortunately… Continue reading Bloomfield Track & Archers Point
I turned 26! So 2 days ago was my birthday and I'm not 26 years old. I'm trying not to worry about being another year older this time around. This was my third birthday in Queensland and it's crazy to think that I was just 23 when I left home in England to come to… Continue reading I turned 26!
Half Year Review You may or may not be aware that at the start of 2019 I did a monthly review to check in and see if I was achieving my goals. However, after a few months I decided that I was reviewing too frequently so I left it for a while. Now we're halfway… Continue reading Half Year Review
