When I first got out to Australia I had no plans and no clue what I was going to do, just that I had got out here and wanted to see what was on offer. I had a friend who had also been here for almost a year so as soon as I landed I made sure to get in contact. A few days later I was at a soccer, 'football', match when he called to ask if I fancied heading up to the Whitsunday Islands with him and of course I said yes! I honestly didn't know what to expect but I wasn't turning any offer down. He explained we'd be on a 3 day boat trip around the islands and stay 2 / 3 days in a hostel.
My expectations didn't reach reality on both sides. The boat I thought would have seperate rooms for each passenger and be slightly larger. It was one room made of 13 bunk beds for around 25 of us with 2 toilets either side that had make shift showers, you pretty much showered standing over the toilet.
I realised though I loved it and if that was how we had to live to travel around seeing amazing things some only dream of and making friends with people I think I'll know forever, it was well worth it and I'd do it again for sure. 
The views we saw definitely beat expectations. Actually standing at the view point for Whitehaven beach and even standing on the beach itself was breathtaking.

Secret trip to Hook Island, where we saw some little Sharks

Sandy Bums, don't care

A little side note to apologise for the pictures. Some have been taken from others and some aren't of great quality. I didn't know what to expect when I went but with each photo diary I'm hoping the editing and picture quality will improve and be much more pleasing to the eye.
