And then I went to Townsville by Greyhound Bus…

on the way to my next destinations we stopped several time sat some gas stations in the middle of nowhere…actually pretty boring..Nevertheless I got my first coconut from a palm on my way to Townville. After trowing a rock several times at a coconut it eventually drop from the palm and I experienced my self picked coconut.

I only came to Townsville to take a Ferry to Magnetic Island. But anyhow, I spent a day just discovering the small town and climbing castle hill. And of course by climbing I mean running to the top.
