Does your week outlook feel like this photo - the weekend a speck in the distance? Maybe it's time to change jobs...or use your downtime at work to research/book that next holiday! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If this photo inspires you, it was taken on my recent trip to Magnetic Island and is the jetty at Picnic Bay. It might have been a cloudy day, but it was still beautiful. You don't have to have 'perfect' weather to get out and explore. We're lucky here in Townsville having, on average, 300 days a year of sunshine - this was obviously one of those 65 other days. I didn't mind though because we had chosen to cycle nearly 20km to get to the ferry to get to Magnetic Island. Why cycle when you can drive you ask? Because it costs almost $200 return on the barge to take your car to Magnetic Island from Townsville! We were only staying on the island for two nights so I didn't see the point of spend such an enormous amount of money, and so, the bicycle challenge began. Walk-on passengers on the car barge only pay $14 each way - and you can take your bicycle for free! There were three couples on the island; one driving, one bussing and us cycling. Of course, the car arrived at every destination first, but surprisingly, we beat the couple bussing every time! And it wasn't even as difficult as I thought it'd be. I was strangely relaxed on our bicycle holiday. This trip has definitely inspired me to take more bicycle holidays!
