Sunday Mornings with Zalt: Sun, sand, sea, and the darn blood suckers.

Rate this Entry
Ahh..holidays, nothing like one without relaxing on the beach with the sun and the calm waves of the beach in summer (yes its summer in Australia <img src="images/smilies/smile.png" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />). Then there's the darn mozzies (or what you might call &quot;mosquitoes&quot. Those darn little buggers come at you in hordes, attacking you in every little open patch of skin they can find on you. <br />
I'm currently on holidays in this place called Cairns, its located near the equator, so its summer all year round. Its a fabulous place, until now, I've been scuba diving and snorkelling in the great barrier reef, forest hiking in one of the oldest rainforest in the world. I'll post up some pics of my underwater shots when I get back home, the underwater life is absolutely stunning.<br />
Two things that annoy me most during my stay in my resort are the darn blood sucking mozzies and....the fact that there is no wifi meaning I have to get on sl using my 3g, whichever has terrible lag, oh and did I mention the fee of roaming data ;_;. <br />
I went hiking in the 'Daintree' rainforest yesterday and I got bit 10 times in the first 5 minutes I got out of the car. Crazy? Nope, I realized when I got back home, my socks were bloody, the cause? Two little bloodsucking leeches draining my blood. :/.<br />
Fear not, I am currently on my way back and will be home with my blazing fast wifi and will be back in my A-Game in sl pvp &gt;<img src="images/smilies/smile.png" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> ill see you there!

    Ohhh yeah, my socks were soaked with blood at the back, lol I didn't even feel it though. Leeches aren't that bad, I mean they use them for medical purposes :9

    I love Cairns and the Daintree (: but Aeroguard is a absolute necessity! I'm on holidays myself, thats why I havn't seen ya in game and why I'm still level 38 (eeep!). 5 day bike ride from Wangaratta to Bright (north-east Vic), and it is so exhausting that I fall asleep before even thinking about SL lol. Nevertheless, I'm sure I'll be seeing you noobs early next year. I love Uni, we get lik 4 months holidays

    Hehe daintree and the great barrier reef were absolutely ....well my mind=blown. For some reason mozzies seem to love my blood :/, even with a handful of repellant, I still get a few bites here and there. They bite me through my clothes, goodness, persistant lil buggers heh.

    If you want to be bit even more go to Camp Chief Little Turtle (BSA summer camp) near Ft. Wayne, Indiana. I remember when I once went there: the first thing I was told was "Welcome to mosquito hell"
