Great Keppel Island and Airlie Beach

I just arrived in Airlie Beach this morning, after spending a totally relaxing three days on the beautiful Great Keppel Island.

If anyone of you ever go to Queensland, I really recommend taking a couple of days and go there! I had a single tent (and when I say “tent” I mean more like a room with canvas walls, housing a big bed, a cupboard, two chairs and a fan), and spent my days on the beautiful beaches and doing hikes around the island. I just loved being totally on my own, in solitude, with the exception of random conversations with the YHA staff and other visitors to the island…

Airlie Beach isn't famous for its beaches – but that's not what I'm here for anyway. Tomorrow I'll go on a daytrip to the Reef, to snorkle and take in the beauty of the underwater world! And you'll never guess what I'll do this afternoon… I'll jump out of a fricking plane! LOL
The guy at the hostel reception talked me into it – after all I've always said I'd like to skydive, and where is the scenery more stunning than over the Whitsunday Islands?

That's my news so far – I've got exactly one week left before I have to head home. Try not to think of that, though. šŸ™‚
