There’s one thing I like doing in airplanes -sleep! Get in, bulk up the seat belt and usually before safety instructions finish, I would be fast asleep… Just like that! But not this time… I knew that the view would be something. From lush rainforest, vulcanic crater lakes to the winding coastline of coves, bays and beaches, the entire region is impressive. As you get closer to the Far North of Queensland, the 900 islands dotting the 2900 reefs take your breath away. I can feel that I am about to be somewhere quiet special.. And I happy to enjoy couple of days in Cairns at Northen Greenhouse Hostel (by the way, I totally recomend it!!!), before sailing to the Great Barrier Reef.
