This was honestly one of the best experiences of, not only this trip, but maybe of my life…sailing the Whitsundays!
Yesterday I fulfilled a dream that I’ve had for quite some time now…to learn to scuba dive. Okay, so I’m not qualified or anything, but this was my first taster session and I loved it…PADI course anyone?
On my last full day in Cairns I finally did one of the things I’ve always dreamt about (it’s even on my bucket list)…scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef!

But, having been assured by friends who’d stayed there before that it was a great place, we decided to bite the bullet and give it … More Hostel Review: Base, Magnetic Island
