For this year’s Christmas and New Year holiday, the trade winds blew me up North to discover Cape Tribulation and the Far North hinterland. Together with my friend Steve, I rented a Toyota Camry Hybrid and we made our way up north. First stop was Mission Beach. We stayed at the Beachcomber Coconut Holiday Park for the night, which turned out to be quite remarkable in three ways:
- It was the first time I slept on my new Therm-A-Rest NeoAir Xlite. And I simply cannot believe how comfy it was. My previous mattress was an Exped Sim Lite UL 3.8 LW and, to be honest, there is no comparison.
- The camp ground was actually perfectly quiet.
- A cassowary came strolling in, just as we sat down for dinner.
The morning was really nice as well. Thankfully I was up early enough, so that I could enjoy a sunrise stroll down the beach.
