Due to time constraints I boarded a bus last night to Airlie Beach. The painful
journey lasted from 8:00 PM until 12.30 p.m. today. It must be the worst way to travel -
so sterile . However, due to the vast distances between places in Queensland, it is
required. I have only two weeks left in Australia. I am planning on exploring the Great
Barrier Reef before I leave the country.

HARDY'S REEF LAGOON
The Great Barrier Reef was breathtaking. I had the pleasure to experience two dives in
the natural beauty of the reef. It was similar to swimming in a huge fish tank surrounded
by coral and heaps of tropical fish. The boat ride through the Whitsunday Islands was very
scenic. These islands can be explored by being marooned from a local sailing company on an
island for several days followed by a 80 km ocean trek to Hardy's Reef. The tour company
of Fantasea Cruises was professional . The reef trip was a memorable and worthy adventure.
It is the sixth wonder of the world. What a life! Another day, another adventure. Today
become certified to dive in open waters on the Great Barrier Reef off Cairns, Australia.
This excursion will be cherished by anyone willing to take the adventure. A few of my
mates on the M.V. Coral Reef would like to say G'day from the reef!
Hello Mr. Diary. My name is Niki. I am the Dive Master on the boat! Hjope you are

Sex On My Mind! Hi I'm Nat. I'm a hosty here and my job is to make sure Tim is happy
and satisfied. Well I've seen some horses before, but Timmy boy takes the cake. I'll be

As you can see the dive trip was lots of fun. The best part of the trip was the
instructor (Trevor). His crusieee way of life was a pleasure to be around .The Dive
company comes highly recommended -CDC. Located at 12 Abbott St.. in Cairns. They will
provide a professional enjoyable trip. See Ya underwater.

These bloody long bus rides are rough! Lucky to have met a few cool people. Here are
some of my new mates:
Hello my name is Heidi and I met this funny guy at the bus stop in Bowen. Was soll ich
noch schreiben? Bus fahren ist so lanfweilig und draussen scheint die sun mit einigen
wolken. NA kannst du es lesen? It was nice to meet you. bye bye Heidi
My new mate Heidi is a comedian. She writes in German to make all my readers receive
lesson in German. What she is trying to say is "lerne deutsch." Learn
German! Wayne a native Australian has words for you in English
G'day my name is Wayne but my friends call me POOH. I have lived in Queensland all my
life, but I have spent most of my time. in big cities like Brisbane. but it has always
been rather a drag, However now I'm moving out to the red center to be a country bumpkin
and ride motorbike's for a living, so it should be great. I'm moving to a little country
town called Boulia which is approximately in the middle of Australia, .It is just A little
bit south of Mt. Isa so it is basically as dry as dog's ball's, but when it rains , the
whole place flood's big time.
Both my mates have left me in Townsville for other destinations, with only five more
hours to Cairns.
