Wow, where on earth is 2019 disappearing to? I swear it really is a year of ‘blink and you miss it’. After my last couple of posts (posted from Sydney) I got back home and promptly came down with the Head Cold From Hell. 😷 (Yes, it deserves capitalisation…) I basically quarantined myself at home so I didn’t infect any of my coworkers. What a great welcome back from leave! (Not.)
Anyway, I’m finally on the road to recovery and it hit me today… it’s just over 6 weeks until I’m headed to Hervey Bay for whale watching!! I was 😁 at the thought but also 😬 because guess who hadn’t booked a single freaking thing for her trip? 🤦🏻♀️ Yes, that would be this doofus.
Thankfully I have now started to get organised and booked my accommodation (through AirBNB) plus a couple of whale watch tours. I’ll be to be in Hervey Bay for 6 days/5 nights and with limited time I’m having to be choosy about what I can and can’t do. I really really REALLY want to do at least one whale swim though, so I’m being preferential to providers that provide that or who I know are really good tour operators.
Still making final decisions but it looks like I’ll be going with:
- Blue Dolphin Marine Tours (possibly twice! I’ve been out with Blue Dolphin before and it was a brilliant trip!)
- Hervey Bay Whale Watch
- Tasman Venture
- Pacific Whale Foundation
- aaand possibly also Hervey Bay Dive Centre.
And while all this is going on, I’m still trying to nail down my Canada itinerary for late September-mid October! 😱
I love travel but the planning really does my head in sometimes. 😅
