G’day, How’s it Goin’?

After about six days in Cairns I’m now heading North again. It’s been a lazy week and me and Klas didn’t really do anything except for drinking beer, playing poker and chat with people passing through the same hostel we were staying at.

Some of you will probably say that I’m wasting my vacation by not getting up at seven in the morning every day to do as much as possible, but to me that’s not a vacation. Vacation for me is to be able to lay in a hammoc, drink cool beer and read a book. Preferably a good one. I did just that a lot as well, and I’m almost done with the second volume of the The Dark Tower novels by Stephen King. It’s a shame I didn’t get the third volume as well because I’ve got a lot of time to read during the next few days of flying around the world once again.

Even though the week was mostly aimless, we did go on one day trip to a crocodile zoo just outside of Cairns. A lot of interesting birds and animals and even a croc attack show. I did take some pictures, but nothing I can get online now.
