Today is time to leave Airlie beach and Whitsunday. We had a great time here and spent 3 days sailing around Whitsundays Islands on a Trimaran and snorkelling at the Great barrier reef. It's so beautiful, I can't even describe the colours and shapes on all the corals and fishes, we saw huge turtles in the water and wales from the Trimaran. We had one stop to whitehavens beach. One of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The sand there is called silica and actually coming from an volcano, it's so soft to walk in and the colour is pretty much white,
The trip was amazing, but to stay on a boat for so long was a bit boring for me. I like to be active and move around. I'm not a fan of drinking games and goon and everybody was playing games and drinking goon in the evening, The views around us was unbelievable with all the mountains and islands, I just wanted to go running there!
It was really nice to be back in Airlie beach after 3 days. When we got back here my friend Helena from Sweden had arrived, It was really nice to meet her again, last time was 2,5 years ago in Sweden and a year before that she was over in Sydney and worked at the race track together with me. We stayed two nights in Airlie beach to hang out with her.
We chilled at the Lagoon in Airlie and had a BBQ with few beers in the evenings. Nice and relaxing before we are heading off on our next part of our cycling journey,
