Hong Kong

One of my favourite places so far. Neon Lights and people everywhere. Chi Lin Nunnery was one of the most beautiful places we have visited. A place that is serene and quiet in the middle of a claustrophobic sky scraper city. Plus we learnt to use chopsticks. We were proud. I am now home and was greeted the airport by an emotional mother and a very happy best friend and father. I am happy to be home, there is nothing better than a massive hug from people you have not seen in ages....and I can now drink all the hot Ribena I want. x

East Coast Australia

We have been in Australia for a month now and are home in a week! We have been to Fraser Island and had a go at driving some 4x4's and also got to see Lake McKenzie.We did a castaway trip in 1770, where we camped on the beach for the night and the next day got a scenic flight over Middle Island,with a pilot called Bruce! One of the best things we have done in OZ! We got back from the castaway trip and then lovely Mike turned up and proposed to Alicia! All very exciting! Next stop was Kroombit, a cattle station where we learnt to Lasoo and crack wips, also having a go at the bucking bronco! Not so good at that! Then onto Airlie Beach where went on our boat the Boomerang for a tour of the Whitsundays. It was brilliant, helped out with the sailing and saw Whales and Dolphins. Whitehaven Beach was beautiful! We did a quick stop at Magnetic Island and now we are in Cairns! Yesterday we went to Cape Tribulation, the weather was rubbish but we had some good ice cream!!!!! Tomorrow we are off for a snorkeling trip and then onto Hong Kong where we shall be stocking up on fake designer goods!!!! x

We are currently in Noosa in Australia! It's lovely! We are staying in a hostel called Flashpackers(apparently this means upmarket backpackers!) and its AMAZING! The nicest hostel we have stayed in so far! When we were in Sydney it absolutely poured it down with rain, but we got to do some wine tasting in the Hunter Valley! Lovely! We have been to surf camp, spotted some hippies in Byron Bay, and celebrated Alicia's graduation in Cheeky Monkey's, a very well deserved 2:1 in Public Relations. We bought her a cap as a present, so she had to wear it out and this meant she had to partake in the silly backpacker games. The hat resulted in Alicia seeing how many pegs she could put on Kim's face. Possibly one of the funniest things I have ever witnessed. We spent a day at the beach and had a night out in Surfers Paradise, saw Koalas and fed Kangeroos in Brisbane and done lots of walking in Noosa aswell as spying all the rather lovely houses! We also went to a farmers market and ate all the tasters. We are off to Rainbow Beach tomorrow and then onto Fraser Island for a bit of 4x4 driving! Also............It's a few days early Sorrel I know but HAPPY 21ST!!!!!!!!!!!!! x

So finally managed to upload a few pictures! They are of general scenery, our themed night of 'tight and bright', Queenstown, the Franz Josef Glacier, cocktails in teapots and the legend that is the Fergburger, the best thing we have ever eaten! Currently in a very random hostel in Christchurch and leaving for Oz tomorrow! x
