Got some holiday pics, finally! I had a good week away. I got a bit sick though. The first night on the Ghan, I was feeling really tired with a sore throat etc, and for some reason started crying uncontrollably. Result being, the staff were so concerned about me that they upgraded me to a sleeper cabin, from my "day/nighter" seat. It was sooo good being able to lie down, but bad that I had to get sick to get it
Spent a couple of days in Darwin. Couldn't do much as I was struggling badly with the heat. I managed to get to the [email protected]
and spent half a day there in the airconditioning... and won a jackpot of $40!!
Then I got on a bus out to Kakadu for two nights. I took a tour out to see waterfalls etc, which involved a couple of walks. I was sooo tired, I couldn't do the first one, and barely managed the second. I also took a cruise the next morning which was MUCH more enjoyable. I got some fantastic photos, and it was so great to get out into nature and visit animals in their natural habitat!
Here's a couple of the pics I got...
Apart from being sick and tired, the only other bad point was having things stolen. Just some yoghurt from the fridge (not a huge deal) and a really great beach towel that I loved, that was upsetting
Can't stand people who steal!!!
I ate heaps, and didn't record a thing in my food diary, although I took it along. For some reason, on my second last night, I got the idea to order a bowl of wedges. Now imagine the largest bowl of wedges that you can..... it was twice as big as that!! I got through more than half, which was a big mistake... I was still tasting the damn things two days later
At least it's out of my system now and I think it will be a very long time before I ever want a potato chip or wedge again haha. Amazingly (after the fluid has gone) not a whole lot of difference on the scale after all that, woo hoo!
