Off we go again
Hello again, and happy weekend! We're a few days into our trip now, and I think we're settling into the routine we have. This morning we checked out of our hostel at about 10, and started wandering around. It's much rougher when you've got all your possesions strapped to your back! We came down here to the internet place again, and there's this really adorable street festival going on. All sorts of booths selling things, and music... we wish we had a little more time to see all of it! In about 2 hours we're going to grab a taxi to the transit center to check in for our Greyhound bus. This afternoon we're taking a 2 hour drive up to the little beach town of Maroochydore. Sunshine here we come ^-^!
Yesterday we went on an exploration mission around town. We walked around and saw lots of cool things. Like purple trees. There are purple trees everywhere! They are really pretty, here:
We were the textbook image of tourist, cracking out our cameras... then this guy wandered out of his house and kind of looked at us, so I very smoothly said, "we don't have purple trees in Canada!"... So he laughed and said that yes, they were very cool, but I think they must be somewhat common because he walked away laughing.
Later that evening, Kay decided that her hair was really annoying her, so the brave soul let me take scissors to her hair. I pretended to know what I was doing... and now she has bangs!!!! Hehe... it was definately not the original intent, but I think we evened them out alright ^0^!
And there you have it! I've got a lot more photos where those came from, but I can't possibly upload everything. You'll get to see them all when I get back home! Now... I have no idea what the internet situation is going to be in Maroochydore, so you may or may not hear from me over the next few days, but I'll be thinking of you!
