Great Barrier Reef

 
Morning Sunshines! 
As I mentioned in the latest blogpost I went to the Great Barrier Reef last weekend. Due to it's greatness I decided to make a separate post about it, and here it is! So, the trip started friday morning. I had to wake up at 5am to catch the bus in to the city where we all from EF were suposed to meet at 7am. 7.35 the jurney started for real and we left Brisbane for Bundaberg (the southest connection to the Reef) 
 
Driving to Bundaberg takes about 4.5h but for us it took way longer. On our way we stoped several times to pee and fule the bus but also to visit a Zoo. The Zoo was very small but offered Australia's most typical animals. That's right, kangaroos, koalas, crocodiles and snakes. We were able to cuddle with the koalas and feed the kangaroos and we had also time to hold a snake and watch when they fed the crocodiles. Funny experince! 
 
 
Hungry, hot and full of hope for the next day (reef day) we arrived to Bundaberg, and what we tought ment "let's chill by the pool, eat and go to bed" was all wrong. After dinner we went to a beach 10 minutes away from our resort, there, in the total darkness we walked along the sea looking for turtles. The guide told us to look like a pile of stones to not scare the turtels away,,, it was difficult but we found a turtle and manage to not scare it! We gathered around her to see when she lay her 120 eggs! Weirdest thing ever but really cool to have seen! 
 
Finally it was saturday and reef day! Once more, early in the morning, we woke up and after a 2h boattrip we reached the reef! Time for snorkeling! 
 
It was amazing. Even though the Reef this south isn't as bright and colourful as in the north, it was amazing. It was full of life, fishes everywere and they didn't cared that you swam by, you became one in the stim. The best thing was to swim with the turtles, that was absolutley the best part and the greatest memory I'll take with me from the trip. To see their massive body swim around so smoothley,,, lit, it was lit! 
 
We hadn't that much time to snorkle which of course was sad but the water was a bit cold so for my body it was enough. After lunch we had the opportunity to walk aorund on Lady Musgrave Island. It's an Island made out of only coral so the trees and greens that lives on the island is very special and uncommon. I think it might be one of the most beautiful islands I've ever seen. The white beach made out of corals, in contrast with the green trees and blue sea looked just like a view in a post card.
