The Road Trip to Cairns
Okay, so last time this didn't work out so well and the girls' trip, or moll patrol, if you must, was postponed due to bad weather. But this time it's on!
On Monday we're driving up the coast to Cairns! Google Maps says that it is 348 kilometres, and will take 4 and a half hours.
All I know is that the time will really fly when we've got ABBA: The Greatest Hits playing at full volume. Yes, you read that right. Screw you, I'm not ashamed.
We will leave Townsville at about 9 am.
We will stop in Cardwell for a pie, because that's tradition.
I will finally get a picture of that incredibly pointy mountain whose name escapes me.
We will get stuck behind old people towing caravans.
I will make a note of awesome place names like Murdering Point.
It will only be four and a half hours away, but it will feel like a real holiday.
So until next week it's a break from writing. I'll be catching up with friends, drinking wine, and enjoying tropical Cairns.
What are your plans for the week?
