away i go!

GOODBYEE WORLD!!! (for 1 week only!)-

it’s midsemester break & im leaving tomorrow morning for our roadtrip to cairns! its supposedly ~18 hrs+ we’ll be stopping by along all the little coastal cities & islands so the drive will be even longer. we rented a car that has a bed in it, its a campervan so it also has a tiny sink & fridge & you can basically live in the car if u wanted, so we’re probably camping for a few days & watching dvds in the car :) i want to camp on the beach!! itd probably be soo cold in the morning but the sunrise would be worth it right? :O)

haha well, heres hoping we have a safe trip & dont run into any wild kangaroos on the freeway! i hear they’re everywhere, especially at early morning. and supposedly they’re really stupid so they dont avoid the cars at all :(

so as u can see on map, brisbane is pretty much halfway between sydney & cairns. luckily we’re not driving from sydney otherwise thatd take 40+ hrs! can you imagine?!!! and i thought LA to san jose was bad…

we’re going to the Daintree rainforest one day, hanging around in Cairns/maybe go to the Whitsundays (if we dont go then ill hopefully be going in october) & then to the Great Barrier Reef for a full day tour of diving/glass bottom boats/snorkeling! i hear the towns along the way up are really cute, so im excited! but otherwise between towns is supposedly nothing. we must be smart about fuel otherwise we might be trapped in the middle of nowhere :( pretty freaky thought. and since we all drive on the opposite side of the road where we live, this will be interesting :D as long as i dont need to drive in mountainous/cliff areas i think i will hopefully be fine…and just follow the car in front of me hahahahhaaa

here are some pictures. hopefully itll be this beautiful!!!
