    I am doing the tour beaches & reefs with sailing on the same date and think that we will travel together. Maybe you would like to write until the trip starts?

    Yes that would be lovely! :-) its a bit scary going on your own…..I didn’t book the Sailing, which I think I’m going to regret!

    Have you booked a hotel when you get there? I’ve never done anything like this before but it’s exciting

    No not yet, but I’ve just been chatting to a girl who’s also going on the same tour, she has booked the Holiday Inn at Sydney. Me neither, it’s exciting and a bit scary at the same time….can’t wait though. Are you also travelling alone?

    Yeah, I know il be fine when I get there, it would just be nice to travel with someone as its such a long way. I’m also thinking of getting an internal flight down to Melbourne from cairns and staying there for a few days.

    Jo

    Me too! :-) I’m there for 7 days once the tour ends, I was going to get the train down. I know, the flights going to be a killer….but it’ll be worth it once we’re there.

    I didn’t think about the train I just looked into multi trip flights. Sounds like we have the same plan lol. Are you going on your own to Melbourne?

    Great, I may just book on the same date as you then, it makes it slightly less daunting having chatted to someone. I’m just waiting on my boss letting me know if I can have 4 weeks holidays in one go, il be gutted if she says no

    Don’t take no for an answer, you can always get a new job when you come back lol! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you though :-)
