Set in a fantastic location, just a few blocks from the shopping Mecca that is Market Street, the San Francisco International Hostel makes a perfectly pleasant stay in one of my favourite cities. Known as the biggest and best party hostel in San Fran, this place is always buzzing with activity and fun…they even offer … More Hostel Review: San Francisco International Hostel, San Francisco, USA
Part 1 of our fun times in Cairns… Part 2 of Cairns…mostly (actually all) snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef:
So I’ve been in Cairns for just under two weeks. Yep. Two whole weeks. Let me just begin by saying that while it is a very nice place, Cairns is not somewhere you want to spend two weeks with not very much money.
