A trip to the reef


We spent the last week in Palm Cove, Cairns. It was great to get away, relax and enjoy some time with the extended family. There were some rainy days but it forced us to have some down time. The great thing about Queensland is that it isn't freezing when it rains like in Sydney, rather it's still warm and balmy. We enjoyed many rounds of 'Settlers of Catan' and caught up on some movies whilst sprawled across the couches.


We squeezed in a few sunny days at the beach which is always good but the highlight for me (and everyone else) was definitely trekking out to the outer Great Barrier Reef. I've always loved getting salty in the ocean and there's no better place to snorkel in Australia. Experiencing the coral and tropical fish first hand in all its glory was a blast - an adventure that everyone should experience at least once in their lives!
