As if we hadn't had enough adventures lately we went on another one, to the Magnetic Island. And we had the best time on the island! It became one of our favorite places on the east coast. Not only because we were staying in a great hostel where a lot of people we met along the coast were staying at the same time as well, but also because we experienced a lot! On the night we arrived we went for a evening walk to picnic bay look out, were we watched a beautiful and peaceful sunset. The following day we hired two small pink "barbie" cars and drove around discovering the island, with the speakers stuck on barbie soundtracks of course. During the day we went for a hike to Radical Bay, fed adorable wallabies, then went for another hike to the forts to watch the sunset once again. The view from up there was amazing, basically a 360 degree view of the island. And since the forts was located in a national park we saw wild koalas on the way.

When we got back from our adventures day we learned that the saying "the world is a small place" is very true. We were having dinner when we saw three familiar faces, but we couldn't really figure out why we recognized them. Then suddenly it stroke us that we met these three guys in Greece three years ago. It was so much fun seeing them again and especially considering we are on the other side of the world.

After Fraser Island we went on another amazing adventure, sailing the Whitsundays. The journey started of a bit rocky, the weather wasn't great.. really windy, huge waves, rain, you name it. But we just decided to embrace the weather and make the best of it, so we had a good time getting to know the people on the boat either way. The second and third day however was incredible! We went to the beautiful white haven beach, which was absolutely breathtaking. The sand there was even better than on Fraser Island, the finest sand in the world actually, it was so fine we were able to brush our teeth and polishing our jewelry with it. A bit weird, but it worked!

We also went snorkeling the reefs, seeing a lot of different pretty fishes, and guess what, we even found nemo! Later on a cute sea turtle swam by looking really relaxed. By then we thought we'd seen it all, but oh how wrong we were. After dinner when we were sitting on deck enjoying Whitsundays a couple of dolphins decided to come visit us. They put on a little show, and completed our adventure.

Recently we went to the amazing Fraser Island, which is basically an island made only out of sand. Fraser is 120 km long and 25 km wide, which makes it makes it the biggest sand island in the world. It is a big national park, with a great wildlife. As soon as we arrived we were stunned by it's beauty, it's one of those places you only see in pictures thinking it can't be real, but it was! But it wasn't all paradise, our guide scared us of with the fact that 12 of the 15 deadliest animals lives on the island, along with the wild dogs called dingos.

The only way to get around was by jeep, so we shared a jeep with three Canadian guys and three Swedish girls, which was a blast! We had a great time celebrating Julia's birthday and hanging out with the amazing people in our group.

There were so many incredible places to visit on Fraser, such as the beautiful lakes, for example lake Mckenzie where the water was so pure you could actually drink it, the hangover creek with really cold and refreshing water, the champagne pools, the Maheno shipwreck and a lake with spa fishes that would give us a free pedicure.

All in all we had the best time on Fraser Island, and we would definitely want to go back, but then we would prefer to stay at the 5 star resort instead of camping in a tent with snakes, spiders and hungry dingos creeping around. But at least we made it of the island alive! ;-)

...with Byron Bay! Exactly as people told us we would before we went there. So after Nimbin we went back to Byron Bay for another 3 days and so far, it is our absolute favorite destination. It is such a cozy and beautiful town and it has a really relaxed atmosphere to it. People were so friendly and treated us well. We also met our friends from surf camp, so we hung out with them a lot, having a picnic at the beach while watching the sunset and going out.

The following two days we were in Surfers Paradise. The town was like a perfect mix between Sydney and Byron Bay. But it seems that where ever we go, we keep bumping into people from surf camp, in surfers it was three Danish guys. We had a good time and are now on our way to Noosa.

Surfcamp in Spot X was really fun, even though it was pouring down most of the time. Both of us managed to stand up on the surfboards during our first lesson and that felt really good! The place itself was a bit odd, and it actually felt like we were living in containers.. However we met a lot of nice people that made the stay a lot more fun! After surfcamp we went up to Byron Bay and stayed there for two nights before we went to visit the mysterious city of Nimbin.. We stayed in Nimbin for one night and slept in a teepee. It was very beautiful, relaxing but a bit different as well, let's just say it is very hippie... Now we are back in Byron for three more nights and then we are off to Surfers Paradise.

After Sydney we went to a pretty little place called Coffs Harbour. We didn't stay there for long but we had a nice time kayaking in the creek and paddleboarding at the beach. But the best part was when we went to Emerald beach to watch the sunset. It was a really beautiful beach and national park at the same time with a lot of wild kangaroos. Definitly worth to visit before we left for spot x and surfcamp!

When we left sweden about a week ago we were pretty sure about our trip, even though we hadn't figured out all the details, we at least knew that we were going from Sydney to Brisbane. But when we sat down to create our route, we realised that we really needed help. This is where a guy called Mike from mad monkey travels gets in the picture, but instead of helping us out with the Sydney-Brisbane, he changed our entire trip and conviced us to go twice as far as we inteded to. So instead of going to Brisbane we are now going all the way up to Cairns. So basically the whole east coast.. But we are really happy about it, because we are going to see some amaaazing things along the way, thanks to Mike. So we celebrated with a bottle of sparkeling on the roof top last night!!

Taronga zoo is just across the harbour in sydney centr, loads of animals, so it took hours to make it all the way around. But we got to see the two most important animals, koala and kangaroo, even though we felt a bit guilty because we had just been eating kangaroo. But we had a fun day, feeling like kids again :-)

Today we went on a daytrip to a place called blue mountains, and oh dear god, it was breathtaking. It is like Australias Grand Canyon. There was plenty of lookout spots were you could enjoy the amazing view of waterfalls, rainforests and the famous three sisters. We did some bush walking, skywalking, rode with the steepest railway in the world (64%) and got a little aboriginal body paint.

The past couple of days has been amazing, we have been to both bondi beach and manly beach. According to us, manly was far better than bondi, even though there was a shark alarm, which was absurd to experience. When not at the beach, we went to see the opera house, and were just randomly walking around when we met this sweet old man whom we also met in the airport when we just arrived to Sydney :-)
