[travel] day 142: Cairns

Getting in at 10 am. There is no public transportation from the airport to the CBD (downtown)….what’s up with that? Via shuttle…($20 for a round trip) dropped off at the Corona Backpackers at 11:30. Not too shabby. Check in, get my room. 4 dorm room, grab the top bunk..I hate listening to people shuffle around in their bed above me.

Tiger, you cheap ass.

Lazy day, trying to find some people to hang out with, found a girl from Scotland and a guy from Australia. Shopping at Wolly’s (Woolworth’s…a Safeway) and free dinner aka a mushy tasteless spaghetti. Night market aka….a Japanese tourist trap.

Cairns has a different vibe than any other city in Australia that I have been to.  A lot more laid back and more like a lazy/party Mexican town. Which is a nice change from the big city of Sydney.

 

cheers and happy traveling.
