Cairns...
Today (Wednesday) we left Sydney behind and headed up the coast to Cairns. It's a major stopping off point for trips to the Great Barrier Reef, tropical rainforest and other outward bound activities. The heat (and more importantly the humidity) here is very high but we have factor 15 sunscreen to spare the loads of the rashness that only the English seem to possess for going out in the midday sun (as I was saying to a mad dog only the other day).

We've booked a couple of trips so far - one to go up a mountain by cable car (I get vertigo) tomorrow and the other to go out to sea (I hate boat trips) on Friday. Sometimes even I amaze myself.
