Annoying Schoolies

Today we woke early and got on the road by 7am as Emma had another 6 hours to drive today. We got to Airlie Beach at around 1.30 and tried to find a tour to the WhitSunday islands. As it was schoolies week (when all the 16/17 year olds leave school and go on a mad party week) it was impossible to get a two day two night tour we ended up having to book two separate day tours. We still managed to get a really good deal as we had our backpacker cards and were due on a boat at 7 the next morning. We then had to find somewhere to stay but most of the hostels were booked out. We found a backpackers travel agency who booked us into the Airlie beachfront backpackers. The first night would be in a double room and then the next two in a four bed dorm. We dumped our stuff and went to the nearest pub for a well deserved drink. For dinner we got some chips and gravy but we were still hungry later on so got the cheep Tuesday pizza from dominos. We watched the film 2012 and then went to bed to be ready for the early wake up.
