I arrived at Cairns at 5:30am.
I went through immigration and custom, then
I withdrawed cash, 300AUD.
Around 7am, Oliver came to airport to pick me up.
Thank you Oliver!!
He is Annika’s friend and this is fist time we met.
Annika and me met at Thailand when we leant Thai massage together at same place.
At first time, I couldn’t find any couch this time, so he could host me if I had no place to stay and offerd me to come to pick me up kindly.
He asked me where I wanna go some place,
I bought SIM card at first.
Today was a public holiday, so many shops closed, I asked him take me somewhere beach to see.
We got to called Coral beach, 15km away from Cairns city.
We walk on the side of the beach.
Do you wanna go over there?
Oliver took his slipper off and walked by bare foot.
“Do you wanna climb up?”
I took his hand and could climb up!
Whoa~, nice view~!
“Hey, look at that!”
“What is that!?”
He showed his face to take a breath.
He was floating and it seems funny!
I’m lucky to see him such a short distance!!
“Well, do you wanna go over there?”
I’m doing rock climbing!
And nice view~!!
We sat down and had a nice chatting 🙂
Oliver is very interesting person, he is student and runner who has a sponsor.
He live with very simple life, going to bed at 9pm and waking up at 4am, so healthy!
He also stayed at ashram for 6 years in Australia and met Annika at that place.
He even stayed at ashram for 3 years in India, and he got flight ticket for free from ashram.
Well, let’s go back.
Down the rocks is more danger than climb up.
Well,, he left his slipper when we climb up the rocks though, when we went back the place he left, it dissapeared!!
“Wow!! Someone stole your shoes!!”
“Yeah..but it’s ok..it was old..”
Whoa, he is like a hermit.
We went back to his car, then we went to his house as he wanna study.
Before go back, I was so hungry, that he took me to super market though,
Tada-! Main dish is Papaya!
He is began, so this is normal for him.
I wonder how he run in such a small meal.
After lunch, I felt so sleepy as I couldn’t sleep enough last night on a plane, so I slept on the bed for 2 hours.
I’m so thankful about that.
Then I did short Thai massage to him, then he took me to city as he also run around.
While he is running, I hang around.
Ooops! I have been this park 7 yeas ago!!
Long time no see, Mr. Muddy!!
This park is so spacious, colorful and many playing tools, looks fun for childrens!
I hope there is such a park in Japan.
I paid 120000yen(about 1600USD) for 3nights 5day tour 7 years ago.
I can’t believe it now.
Now I found that short trip is more expensive than long one…
Children are playing on the muddy sea.
Lagoon, free pool.
I just hang around the city, then Oliver picked me up around 7pm.
I wanted to eat something, but there is no proper place we could find, so went to small super market.
Oliver was not so hungry, but I was so hungry.
So this is the dinner.
Water melon, frozen yogurt, sparkling juice and chocolate.
Looks child’s food? But it’s took 10$ a each of us.
And Oliver was full he just ate 5 pieces of Potato tips.
No way~! What a small stomach!!
He is really healthy and like a hermit.
Well then, he dropped me off at couch host place.
Thank you Oliver today!!
And thank you Annika for introduced him for me!!
I said hello to Craig, my couch host, and had some conversation, then I went to bed around 11pm.(in Japan 10pm.)
When I tried to write blog, I fainted away as so sleepy.
But I woke up at midnight, then I wrote.
