My semester-break

Hi there! I’d like to write about my 9-days-trip in Sydney and Cairns. On the first day, I went to Sydney, but my flight was cancelled at the time before eight hours. It was confusing that when I woke up in the early morning, and I received an e-mail. I was upset and I had to make another reservation because there was no alternate flight on that day. So, I advise you not to use jet star or kinds of LCC on Australia, at important travel. After I arrived at Sydney, I was overcome by busyness. Public transportations are available even at midnight, also I could use my contactless credit card instead of Transperth card. The city was huge, and similar to Tokyo. I used to rural life for two months, so it was surprising. On the next day, I went to Blue Mountains. It is famous for its beautiful scenery, and it was brilliant. I saw beautiful sky and mountains’ line, and their contrast. Also, there are two ropeways, and a cable car at Scenic World. For me, the cable car was the best, because I went through the tunnels and deep forest in high speed, and it was thrilling.









After Sydney, I went to Cairns to enjoy ocean and tropical rainforest. Firstly, I went to Green Island, and enjoyed snorkeling. I saw so many tropical fish over there and swam together. Also, the sea water was so clear, and I saw corals every direction. Secondly, I went to Kuranda. It is common to use ropeway and railways to visit there. In these vehicles, I enjoyed beautiful view for example, a great waterfall, a blue butterfly called Ulysses under us, and so on. At the village, I visited butterfly sanctuary to see butterflies closer. There are so many kinds of colorful butterflies; red, yellow, blue, green, orange, etc.










In this way, I enjoyed and feel nature so much in this trip after all. I highly recommend you begin preparing before a month. I hope your trip will be the best memories for you. See ya next time!
