Bumblebee Girl on Mission Possible

This is by fare one of the best trips I’ve taken.

I was the first one to be picked-up and the bus was of a very good standard. While driving we got a lot of information about the area and outside the city our guide Travers told us about cane sugar farming etc. and all the way he gave us insightful information – rather impressive.

First we stopped in the Wildlife Habitat in Port Douglas. It was more like an extended leg stretching in wonderful surroundings and we got refreshment like fruit platters etc. We could also attend a class about the koala, snake etc. but I preferred to see all the animals and have time for it since I’ve been though a lot of these speeches now 🙂

After Travers made sure we got a rain forest walk so “us jungle surfers” got a jungle walk too and and he really knew what he was talking about and the walk was so beautiful.

We were driven to the pick-up point for jungle surfers where we also got lunch and the rest of the group was taken to a beach/rain forest walk.

The jungle surf was unique and the crew told us about the vegetation all the way though. They made sure we had an extra bag on our harness to private stuff like cameras and medication if people needed that. We each got a helmet with a hero name on and I got “Terminator”:-D
I loved zip-lining through the rain forest between the majestic trees like mahogany and the view was epic from the top of the trees. The guides  took pictures but it was too expensive since they were pretty dark, but it was not a problem since we’re allowed to bring our own cameras and go-pros. I loved zip-lining through the rain forest between the majestic trees like mahogany and I’ll highly recommend it. We had a couple around the 70’es and they did it too even hanging up side down like the rest of us.

We’re all returned to the pick-up point in one piece ;-D where Travers picked us up and then it was ice-cream time. I’ve in my wildest dreams never seen so many choices in all homemade ice cream. I chose the passion fruit/ginger/banana and it tasted really good.

Next stop was the crocodile cruise and even if I had been on one in Darwin this one was different. The boatman/guides daughter was with us and she spotted things before us and knew a lot. The guide was very knowledgeable and showed us several crocs and even a couple of baby crocs (very cute).

Then we unfortunately had to return to Cairns but the trip back was really nice because we stopped at a couple of good places for a quick stretch and stunning views.  I was so fortunately to sit in front and learned a lot from Travers. He’s an inspiration so you’ll have to look up Jungle Tours when you’re in Cairns and ask for Travers.
