Bestfriends trip to Cairns

Hi my name is Lisa. For my bachelorette party we decided to go to Cairns with my bestfriends. We had so much fun in the town that no one wanted to leave. We had acquired our ticket through Virgin airways and the return ticket through Jetstar airlines. We had the best cocktails from the nightclubs in Cairns. I remember partying so hard that we were hungover during the wedding. I will get my ticket back really soon with my girlfriends.

Proposal at Cairns

My boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Cairns last summer. He arranged everything the visas, the air ticket, all the hotel reservations. He got the ticket from British airways on our way there. The return air ticket was from Virgin airways. Virgin airways had better plane service so we will definitely get an air ticket from them next time.The trip was well planned everything was right. We settled into our hotel in Cairns after a few hours of flying. The service of the place was great and the people were so accommodating. On the last day before we left my husband went down on one knee and proposed while having dinner in the hotel. Of course I said yes he is the love of my life. I never wanted to leave Cairns, it will forever be embedded in my heart. W will get a ticket back soon.
