Painful days but worth it – ATV ride and a fall in Cairns

Hello Friends,

As you would have already seen from my diving pics in Great Barrier Reef, I had an awesome weekend. It was not all sweet but then how can be things interesting with no down side to them. So it all started with this bucket list of mine. And here I am all happy, content but every inch of my body is shouting at me after this weekend. It is so sore and painful that every time I move my hand or legs or neck, it reminds me of the adventure I had this weekend ūüėČ

So how did I get this sore as diving doesn’t make you this sore after all not when you have been diving for a while. Here it goes – I did have a big day driving ATV around the farm before I did my diving and before the second dive I fell badly on the floor face down. I did try to compete with the expert there and jumped my ATV over many hurdles and kept getting faster and faster. Even scared the instructor when I flew my ATV just a few inches away from his ATV and he almost stood up and got ready to jump from his ATV to save himself. And I am not sure it was my fault or what that I did take all the force on my hands to save my face and of course no scar on my face but hands are almost useless ¬†other than typing on the computer. Yesterday I was struggling to cut even an apple. ¬†How did I fell? Don’t even ask as it was as a matter of fact very funny incidence the way it happened and gave every one around a reason to have a laugh. The wet suit was very small and of a different design so like first dive I had to get help to get into it but unfortunately a very big guy came for help and lift the suit (me in it) and chain opened so fast that the very next moment I was on the floor facing down. Thank God I was few inches away from the door otherwise you would be looking at my Terminator kind of melting face picture ūüėČ

Item Number #13 – Try at least 10 different cuisines

It was amazing to have French Tomato-ey Ratatouille on Friday afternoon in Sydney with a friend of mine and Creole Jumbalaya with Voodooz Conrbread with my buddy in diving on Sunday night in Cairns. Different cusines in different places was something I enjoyed the most last week I must admit and this bucket list of mine made sure that I remember to try something new when I was on my diving trip to north of Australia in Cairns. Cafe Nice in Circular Quay, Sydney, not only provides you with taste but a very nice ambience with price that fits in budget. Sounds very delicious right, I know. Also Voodooz in Cairns has a very traditional Cajun (New Orleans Style) food. Also I did try Portuguese burger and it was very yumm
