Goodbye Australia, Konnichiwa Japan

sunny 27 °C
View Brisbane to Cairns on LaurenSho's travel map.

So we've come to the end of 3 amazing weeks, I almost want to cry! All it's done is made me want to stay longer, and travel more...luckily Japan tomorrow will be able to console me for a wee while at least.

Had a pretty fun night out last night, and finally NOT an early morning today! Just away to have a lazy day in Cairns (pronounced Caaaaannes if you're Aussie), we might even pick up a few presents for you guys (or I might just treat myself, haha) and the sun is coming out just in time for a wander around.

Things I've learned about beer in Australia:

- A schooner is their pint equivalent, and it's a little less than a pint - they obviously can't hold their beer as well as us Scots!
- A pot of beer is not as big as it sounds, it's actually just half a schooner/half a pint.
- Tooheys Extra Dry is tasty.
- Flip Cup is an awesome beer drinking game.

So we're gonna have a bit of a homecoming party the weekend we're back, and I challenge you all to Flip Cup!

We also had a bit of a go at Didgeridoo playing today, I'm a natural:

That's all for now folks, next update from JAPAN!
