Question

Who is doing the Reefs and Rainforests 13th Sept

Hi, this is my first solo trip and I'm both nervous and excited. I've always wanted to visit Australia and now, finally, I've got the chance. I'll be joining the Reefs and Rainforests tour on the 13th Sept and will probably try and stay a few extra days in Sydney after the tour ends.
I'm hoping to hear from other travellers who will be on the tour...?

    Hey,

    I am looking at doing this tour too with the Whitsunday Sailing option, can’t wait!! Where are you from?

    Hey Emz!
    I’m also looking to include the Whitsunday Islands. I mean, I’d be mental to avoid missing out on one of the most beautiful places in the land of Oz, right? :)
    I’m from South London so I’ve got a 24 hour flight to look forward to haha! How about you?

    Hello Alexandre.
    Well, I’m now officially on the tour having paid for everything today. Be great to have you along on the trip, never met someone from Canada!

    Hi Leanna!
    Oh that sounds fantastic. You’ll have a blast in Australia.
    Unfortunately my stay isn’t long. I land in Cairns on the 12th around lunch so I’ll have the day to explore before joining up with the tour on the 13th. When we arrive in Sydney, I’ll be staying for the weekend (2 extra days) then coming home as that’s my work holiday allowance up! I’m thinking of travelling for a few months next year but I wanted to see what solo travelling was like as this will be my first time!
    You’d be more than welcome to explore Sydney with me if you like. More the merrier :-)

    Are you sure that your name isn’t Leanne Lucky? I’m almost envious of you for having family in the land down under. Melbourne is high on my list of places to visit alongside Ayres Rock, which I came close to choosing this year, although I think I’ve made the right choice. Reefs & Rainforests looks great!
    So what’s made you decide to go solo this time and do you have Facebook. Might be easier to stay in touch that way if you wanted to chat and stuff…

    Just to add, if you don’t like meat then I apologise for the spam! ^^ :D

    So basically after these four reasons, although I can’t prove or disprove, if atheism does happen to be true, then it would explain this evidence the best.

    Hi adz,
    I’m also doing this tour solo, only booked it yesterday so very excited and nervous as it will be the first time i will have been traveling. I’m from Northern Ireland so going to Thailand with a friend for 2 weeks and then heading on solo to Australia.

    Hey Joanne.
    Looks like we’re in the same boat, so to speak. It’s so exciting, only four months away. Eep! Sounds like a great trip, have you booked everything in Thailand already or are you leaving that for a bit?

  • 16 May 2012 Joanne said

    Joanne

    Have nothing booked as yet for Thailand probably will just pre book a few nights stay in a few places and go from there. It’s def very exciting.

    Looks like a few friendly faces have joined the tour. I’m arriving early on the 12th so perhaps you’d like to meet in Cairns? Might be cool to hang out and stuff before the tour starts. Sounds like a great idea, wish I could live in Australia. Will you be working Simone? x

    Hey – I’ve booked into the Gilligans Backpackers Hotel and Hostal although I believe (at least according to STA) that it’s booked up. Might be worth seeing if there is anything local but for sure, worth meeting before hand.
    I’ve thought about working or staying out there but I have a job to come back to! x
