March 25, 2004, 14:30: Cairns, Australia - Pete's Backpackers
It turned out the reception at the rafting company gave me the wrong time for my ATV trip, and consequently, my pick up time was way too late for me to actually have made the trip. They offered me a refund for that portion of the trip, but I'm still really disappointed, this was to be one of the highlights of my trip. I even went outside 10 minutes before my scheduled pick up time to ensure I would be on time. Now I don't know what to do with myself the rest of the day - this city seems to revolve around day trips here and there, and at 2:30 pm, I've missed my chance to catch something else to entertain me for a while. There's not much more that I can see or do here, and I just feel like leaving now, as I only stayed the extra day to make the ATV trip. The reception at Pete's Backpackers here doesn't re-open till 3:30, and I won't be able to borrow one of their movies until then. It's laundry time.
I have some pictures from Rafting.
