Tomorrow I fly up to Cairns for nine days/eight nights for the real holiday.

While I love my family very much, time spent with them is not a holiday as I will always stress around them, as a result I'm really looking forward to the next week.

So, anyone have any suggestions on what I should do up in Cairns? Mostly the plans are to be lazy and relax, but I do want to do some stuff while I'm up there. If I'm lazy and do nothing for the entire time I will end up regretting it, so I want to have some activities.

One thing I probably won't be doing is visiting the reef. The way my back/neck has been means that time on the water will probably make me seasick. Not something I really want to do.

One thing I have pencilled in is to visit Kuranda via the Sky Rail and the Kuranda Scenic Railway. From what I've read, the railway only has two trips a day, while the Sky Rail is continuous, so what I'll probably do is take the railway up one morning, spend however long I want to spend up there, and then take the Sky Rail back down.

Anyone else have any "must do" options?

Holidays!

I'm on holidays for the next two weeks.

I'm visiting my parents from Sunday the 14th till Saturday the 20th, and then I'm up in Cairns until Sunday the 28th.

My plans are to do as little as possible in the warmer weather.

I may or may not be looking at my feeds, depending on the availability of internet (especially at the hotel in Cairns).

I'll see you all on the flip-side.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams that tie two hearts that will never die
And near the flames
The shadows play in the shape of the man’s desire

This desert rose
Whose shadow bears the secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

And now she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing’s as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
The rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Whose shadow bears the secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of hidden hearts and souls
This desert flower
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of love
