Bri & Jo's excellent adventure
Airlie Beach / Whitsundays / Noosa A day on a proper sailing boat across the crystal blue ocean once sailed by Captain Cook. We had our own island for snorkelling and lunch before I sailed us home (expertly of course!). Continuing the water sport overload, we took a surfing lesson in Noosa. We both stood up and turned by the end of the 2hrs, which was all we had time for unfortunately. We then raced down the coast spending the odd day here and there.
Brisbane - dinner of steak and wine (wow - more real food!!!), Byron Bay, Manly & Bondi Beaches - watching the surfers.
Sydney & Melbourne Before my parents left we took a trip around the harbour to see all the major touristy stuff - opera house, bridge etc. Mike and Ren, our excellent hosts, took us to a rugby match and to the beautiful Blue Mountains. We chilled out and met up with friends we've met elsewhere around the globe the rest of the time.
More first class accommodation in Melbourne with our friends Ellie and Claire. They were excellent tour guides and did a super job of showing us their beautiful city. It was strange but nice to be part of family life again.
We're now in Christchurch, New Zealand which is already starting the build up to the Lions rugby tour. It's a serious business over here and promises to be an excellent excuse to go to the pub!
Take care all, Bri & Jo
