I think I last left you before we got to Townsville. I have time to squeeze in a few more blogs before I leave for New Zealand so here ya go. Once we arrived in Townsville we got picked up by a really cool French lady named Celine. She worked nights as a nurse in Townsville but, she took the time to show us around Townsville and really make us feel at home. She had 2 great dogs that we got to walk and take care of while she was at work and she really took the phrase “Mi Casa, Su Casa” to heart. We saw a movie while we were in Townsville called The Town which I reviewed for yall in my previous blog. We went to a party of a friend while we were in Townsville and had a great time!
It was good just to relax and unwind for a while. Celine also took us to a really amazing watering hole where we went swimming. It was about a half hour drive and a 20 minute walk to get there but, once we got there it was totally worth it! There wasn't a single person there and the view was amazing! The water was so clear and refreshing. I really loved just relaxing out there and doing nothing. So we didn't “do” a lot in Townsville but that was totally fine and I loved just unwinding.
Celine was a great hostess and she was even a vegetarian! Not that there is anything wrong with that but, for those of you who know me know that I am about as far from a vegetarian as you can get haha. So it was interesting having meals with no meat whatsoever but, you know what? I survived! Lol. She also didn't have a TV that she used so it was kinda nice just to “get away” from that and NOT watch TV. It is odd how attached you really become to TV and technology. You don't even notice it until you don't have the option to use/watch it. But it was great and she was super. Ben and I definitely won't forget all her hospitality and owe her a big thanks!
Well that's all I got for now. Yall take care,Tyler
