3rd Dec 2010 – 6th Dec 2010
After an eventful & long journey we finally made it to Cairns. We checked in to The Heritage Cairns Motel, & were greeted by Rosemary, the owner who made us feel very welcome. The room was lovely & had a balcony & large king sized bed.After showering we went for a walk in to the main town. Carins is very cosmopolitan & very expensive!! We walked down to the harbour & round the town & then stopped off for a bite to eat before heading back to the hotel & being tucked up in bed by 8:30!!!
Blimey after leaving BHX 45 mins late & arriving at Dubai our plane was then put out of action & a substitute was sent, which then had a technical fault which they didn’t tell us until we were on the plane & then left us sitting in the heat for over 2 hours!!!
Ok so we’ve been planing this trip for a few years now & finally it’s coming round really fast!
We leave the UK on Tuesday 30th November from Birmingham International at around 8pm. After a connecting flight from Brisbane to Cairns we visit the Great Barrier Reef and then spend 3 weeks in a camper van travelling from Cairns to Melbourne stopping at various places on the way.
