Great Barrier Reef Road Trip Day 1: Agnes Water Beach and 1770 Backpackers


Great Barrier Reef Trip Day 1: Holiday Inn Brisbane
Happy Easter Monday, everybody!!! I'm officially back from my 3 days package tour to the Great Barrier Reef, still in a stage of recovering from my holiday mood and getting some rest in my home sweet home. The road trip was indeed an awesome one with my traveling buddies and Sunset Safaris, except the long hours sitting and crampy tight hips. In that very morning of departure, we met up at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Brisbane and took off around 7-ish.

The double deck / bunk beds we slept on. We had to put on / take out the pillow case, bed and blanket covers ourselves, but at least, the beds were clean with no bed bugs.
