Queenland is where Australians go on vacation. This afternoon, I jetted in to see what all the fuss is about. The timing was nice: despite warm days earlier in the week, Sydney was a bit brisk this morning. Up here in Cairns, however, the temp is much more accomodating. (The 10-day forecast, for example, predicts an overnight low that won’t drop below 72°F.)
I’m going to work my way down the east coast with the intention to land back in Sydney just before 25 Nov. To that end, I’ll be taking my first bus — probably on Sunday. You can bet I’m looking forward to that.
