Day 100: Brisbane to Airlie Beach, Australia
I told Veronica that I will be joining her and Hillary on the sailing trip. She mentioned that it’s a long bus ride from Brisbane to Airlie Beach. I didn’t realize how long it was until I was actually on the bus. 20 hours is simply brutal! I found myself playing a contortionist with the various ways I tried to make myself comfortable in the seat during the bus ride.
Day 101: Airlie Beach, Australia
I arrived this morning. The cabin I’m staying in with Veronica and Hillary is great. It’s such a nice break from the bustling Backpackers places (hostels).
Airlie itself is not very interesting. This is nothing new given my travels around Australia. I imagine the sailing trip will be the highlight of my final week here.
It’s nice to just to pass time at the cabin. It’s a chill place that feels like a getaway. The room is basic, with a basic kitchen, but nice bathroom. It reminds me of how little we need to function day-to-day. Though I probably won’t return to Australia, I’d definitely return to Airlie for a holiday. Who knows, maybe someday I will return to Australia.
It’s cool chillin’ with Veronica. She always seems to have lots on her mind. To be fair, to move to Australia from the UK is a big step. I imagine that trying to adjust to life in a far away and different place would keep someone preoccupied. She worries too much about what others think rather than giving herself credit for being a risk-taker. She sounds very much like me.
