Thursday, January 2nd we leave early for the airport to go to our third destination in Cairns, Australia. I’m very excited to go to Cairns because it is known as the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. We will be staying in the Novotel Hotel which is amazing! The Novotel Hotel has a sandy beach pool that looks like a resort pool on the beach. I can not wait to spend some free time relaxing by the pool. The hotel also offers onsite coin laundry services which will be nice to be able to clean clothes in the middle of the trip. When in Vietnam it was nice knowing when we would be able to do laundry so we could pack fewer clothes. After checking into the hotel we will have the rest of the day to explore on our own. There has already been talk about bungy jumping during this free time. I’m very nervous just thinking about jumping off a tower just attached to a rope by my feet but I’m a thrill seeker so down to jump. AJ Hackett is where we will be going to jump because it is the only place in Australia that you can go bungy jumping. At AJ Hackett tower it is a 164-foot leap into the rainforest over the Coral Sea and Great Barrier Reef. The jump will be scary but the views from the tower will be breathtaking. I can’t wait to be in Cairns!
