Diving the GBR was definitely one of the highlights of this trip. In fact, the only reason why I flew to Australia before going to NZ was to dive the GBR. It did not disappoint.
I thought Sydney was hot until I arrived in Cairns (pronounced “cans” like beer cans, but say it with an Aussie accent). Unfortunately, my hostel didn’t have AC, which made my hostel in Sydney feel like the Ritz. *sob* It’s funny how your perspective changes from place to place.
