A Week in the Middle East

Okay, so this is going to be a little bit of a throw back post.

If you’re up to date with my blog then you’ll know my last few posts have been about Australia (where I’m currently settled in Brisbane), and I felt like for a little bit I should write about some other places.

Last year in April I went to the Middle East for a week with Mumma Sinclair, and I never wrote about it on my blog, oops.

Over the next couple of days I will be writing about my adventures in Irsael, Palestine and Lebanon.

I hope you enjoy the posts, and it breaks it up a bit after my many Australia posts..

ENJOYYYYYY

Riding to Paradise on the Whitsundays

the post where I talk about heaven..

Just two weeks after visiting the beautiful Fraser Island, I was off on another stunning adventure.. this time to Whitsundays. My trip began on the popular town of Airlie Beach, which is the launching point for the majority of Whitsundays trips.

If you know me, then you’ll know me and boats do not get along. I struggle to be on a boat for more than an hour before I throw up, and carry on throwing up until I step off my boat again. The idea of spending three nights on a boat with 30 people, and sleeping there too, was enough to put me off going. This was until I was told about Ride to Paradise. A Whitsundays trip where you stay on a resort complex, and go on a speed boat from Island to Island and activity to activity. Bingo, perfect for me.

Prices start from $569, for two days two nights, all food and accomdation included (but I get mine in a package I mentioned in my Melbourne post).

There isn’t a lot to say about Whitsundays apart from OMGGGGG. I was so so lucky that when I went it was clear blue skies, perfectly still water, and hot.

 

Instead of going into massive depths about the clear waters, pure white sands, snorkelling with turtles and sting rays (did I make you jealous?) I’ll let you look at some photos instead.

Where have I been??

the post where I apologise for being crap at blogging..

Hello, I’m back *hides face in shame*

The whole point of this blog was to document my travelling. Well I’ve been travelling for 5 months now and I’ve made precisely 0 blog posts. Zero, nothing, nought, none.

I know I know, terrible. But I do have an explanation, well more of an excuse really.

I’m new to this whole travelling malarkey. It was my first time in a hostel, and to be truthfully honest I have no clue what I was doing whatsoever. As you can imagine, flying 24 hours around the world by yourself, landing in a brand new continent can be pretty overwhelming. I did plan to blog, but yeah, that didn’t happen.

Well enough of me trying to justify my actions, I will now try and get into what I was going to say.

WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

So on the 29th November 2016 I left raining Cheltenham to flew to Australia. I landed in Meblourne on the 1st December at 7:30am, and I had no idea where the hell I was. Since then I have travelled Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. I’m not going to go into too much detail here as I am (hopefully) going to make individual blog posts on some of my adventures up the East Coast.

Brace yourselves people, this is where it gets good. I have made a friend here (I know, exciting), and when my visa expires in December, we are going travelling and she is coming back to England with me. Hopefully by then I would’ve worked out how to hostel and blog at the same time, and I won’t leave it 5 months until you hear from me again.

But yes.. that was the reason for my blog post today. So people (mainly my mum) know I’m alive and well, and just merely go so side tracked with life that blogging wasn’t something that came to mind *I did try and do vlogmas, got to day 5 and realised I can’t vlog*

In order for this blog to work I really do need to try and jazz it up a bit, you know make it all fancy so people think I’m a professional (fingers crossed anyway).

Until next time
