That water is so beautiful! Makes me think of an image from a game rather than real life because it looks so perfect.
That's Green Island, off the coast of Queensland, on the Barrier Reef. Queensland is rediculous, if you haven't been you should go. Seriously, everyone go visit Queensland ASAP. I spent nearly 3 weeks with my mouth wide open and I've never been so pissed off at having to go back home in my life. I actually looked into emigrating there. Sadly I don't have any of the job skills that makes that process easier, I'd need to find an employer to sponsor me to move.
Only down side: 22 hours on planes is not fun.
Sure, Queensland can be nice if you like hot weather, but be aware that it is also by far the most right wing state in the country. They have the honour of producing Joh Bjelke-Petersen and Pauline Hanson.
Really? Everyone seemed so nice and friendly and laid back it's hard to imagine them as right wing nutters. As regular nutters yes, but not right wing ones lol. I guess I'm just used to living in a part of the world where pricks are much easier to spot, as they wear their prickness with pride, 'coz they somhow think being a prick makes them awesome.
As for the heat, yeah its hot but it didn't feel as hot as I expected. The temperature was regularly in the 30's (celcius) but I've experienced temperatures in the 20's that have felt hotter. In Verona for example it didn't really get above 28 but I nearly fucking died (exaggerating, obviously) it felt so hot there.
