I have now made it to Sydney! The last few days in Cairns were very exciting. I went skydiving for the first time which was something that pushed me out of my comfort zone and ended up being one of the best times of my life. Later that night I explored the Cairns Night Markets which have a lot of cool food vendors and flower shops. The next day we snorkeled the Great Barrier Reef! I can’t believe I can say that I have done that. While parts of it were very beautiful, many parts were dead which opened my eyes to how important protecting our environment is (pictures from underwater to come). The next day we went to a Crocodile park/zoo! I pet kangaroos and looked at the Koalas. Additionally, I watched a crocodile attack show and a snake show. We then departed Cairns and flew into Sydney! I am so excited to finally be in the city. Last night, I walked up to the university and stumbled upon Gay/Lesbian Mardi Gras which was basically a huge party. I am loving the city so far!
