G'day mates,

We're going on vacation tomorrow and until Sunday. We'll be in Cairns, Queensland. It is almost all the way north and very close to the Great Barrier Reef National Park.

I haven't been to the beach much in Australia since we're still "settling in" and we try to make our weekends more productive than relaxing, so I'm really looking forward to this.

I found a casual job at a cupcake shop. Don't get too excited it is nothing glamourous, in fact there is a really stupid hat and lots of cleaning involved. I am still looking for a more serious job but it is a tough time of year around christmas, there's very little hiring they tell me. But I also got tired of sitting at home so it's nice to get out every once in a while and earn a little moolah. I will also be volunteering at our local food cooperative starting next week.

But enough about work, I need to pack for the beach.

Yay, Cairns! Not much of a beach town, but do make sure you make it to the Great Barrier Reef as well as to some of the surrounding beaches - my favorite is the Mission Beach.Ah, and say hello to the ol' Wool Shed :)

That's so awesome! Again most of cooking is cleaning. Particularly baking. I think is great!
