A journal entry from: Around the World in 80 Days!

Day 12 - Cairns AUS - Distance travelled: 16,270km

Hi again everyone!  We have been in muggy Cairns for one day now... it's been pretty nice.  Checked in to our hostel late last night.  The people have been fantastic and everything is uber convenient.  Our room isn't quite as nice as the last place, but the overall atmosphere and amenities absolutely make up for it.  We can't wait for thai dinner tonight!

Did a scenic tour of the rainforests today which was beautiful.  Didn't see as much wildlife as we would have liked, but the plant life was pretty nice.  We're really looking forward to our great barrier reef trip on Thursday.

Tomorrow should be a kind of lazy catch-up day.  Maybe some laundry, maybe some shopping! haha.

Thinking of you all at home... Go Oilers!  We've been following them and are trying to find a pub tomorrow that might broadcast the calgary game for us (doubtful...) haha

Talk to you again soon!
