Jason’s first impression
Dear friends, family and whoever else read this,
Instead of writing my first impression of Australia, I would like to take the time to write this instead: It has been a pleasure knowing all of you and I wish you the very best in whatever it is that your future holds. I say this because by the time you read this I will probably have spontaneously combusted. I don’t think I had enough money to get me through three months here anyway…this place is Expensive!
Simone’s first Impression
HOT! Geez this place is hot and I like hot, but the humidity is almost unbearable. Coming over from a nice cool New Zealand into 90F and 70% humidity has been a shock to the body. We picked up our spaceship (camper van), encountered quite a few unhelpful people and made our way up the east coast from Cairns to Port Douglas. Hopefully the people get nicer and the weather gets a bit less humid, so far I’m not sure why I wanted to come here so badly. Perhaps I have built up Australia so much in my mind that it wont meet my expectations?
