Cairns again: lagoon, markets and chilling

IMG_20160604_142832After three days of being in the rain forest  up north, I arrived back in cairns for one last night before heading north-west. IMG_20160604_142923

Once I got to the hostel early evening, I checked in and took the lift to my room. The hostel had made a slight mistake with my booking so ended up in an 8 bed for the price of a 12 bed. Win!DCIM103GOPRO

There was only a guy in my room, who wasn’t planning on going out. Straight on my phone I messaged the two girls from England and the English guy and two German people to see who was planning on going out. Both! The girls were on there way back from a day trip so I changed and went to the others with my leftover goon. IMG_20160604_145349

Tonight was ladies night again at the hostel but it was a lot busier than before, maybe because it was a Friday night. The night consisted of champagne, line skipping by knowing people and making new friends, dancing, socialising with my newly made friend then at the end of my night going to bed. IMG_20160604_143514

Ringing from my alarm told me it was time to rise, shower and check out all before ten o’clock. My last day in Cairns was super chilled, where I made myself then hung out in the room with the two Germans and British guy. I had a few errands to run including buying flip flops, posting some postcards, booking a shuttle to the airport and finding some juice.

It’s a goodbye to the East coast for a while until I go back to Sydney and a farewell to Cairns.

I am so grateful for all the awesome people I met, who have made my time here, and the beautiful views.

Now onto the next part of my adventures: Darwin, Perth and Fiji.
