Welcome to Katie's Travel Blog. This is really Jenny-doesn't-get-to-travel blog where I (mom) keep track of Katie's adventures so I can have some vicarious enjoyment! Here's a look at what one globally-aware kid from little Santa Cruz, California gets to do these days if her mom's willing to keep working!

Day 13: Sand Tobogganing, the Tasman Sea and Off to Cairns

Wow, she does look kinda waxy!
Today they take a coach from Shoal Bay back to the airport in Sydney.

They can fly to Cairns at 1:30 and arrive at 4:30 where tomorrow, they will snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef. I wasn't sure if they would hit the dunes yesterday or today but the itinerary said today. Turns out it was yesterday and Sheila posted a few great shots!

She also shared a few other photos from the last few days. From the climbing and repelling trip to the Antarctic Center and fireworks in Sydney. These kids are living large and will have stories to tell us through Christmas! They only have a few more days!

The photos below are Sheila's pics except the one I swiped from Eloise's Instagram on the right!

From the People to People Itinerary:

Welcome to Cairns, a coastal cosmopolitan city nestled in tropical northern Queensland amid two of Australia’s most treasured World Heritage destinations, the Wet Tropics Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.
  • Challenge yourself to try sand boarding and race down the sand dunes that can be over 90 feet high!
  • Travel back to Sydney to board your flight to Cairns this evening.
  • Interact with local Aussie families over dinner and enjoy this unique opportunity to be immersed in local culture and learn about life in Australia. 
At the Dunes. Some of Mad Max was filmed here Sheila reports.
How fun is that!?!
At the Antarctic Center. 
Just before the repel down the mountain!
I have no idea where this is...
Fireworks over Sydney Harbor.
