Who do you think you are kidding, Mr Ponting?

Greetings folks from sunny Brisbane, Queensland.

 The Ashes begins tomorrow, I am really excited. It has been hyped up massively over here, the Aussies attitude seems to be ‘we won everything before the 2005 series and we’ve won everything after’. The atmosphere tomorrow will be electric, and the English are taking over Brisbane already! Although I seem to get automatically associated with the Barmy Army, which I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.

 Since my last update we have been in Cairns for 4 days, and for the first time we had a bit of wind and rain. On Saturday we went on the Kuranda Scenic Railway through the rainforest, and then came back down via the SkyRail cable car, they were both very interesting rides. Shared the cable car with a couple of old American women and they were crazy!

 On Monday we went to the Great Barrier Reef, it took 1hr 45m to get there by boat and it was raining heavily and strong winds when we got on. That made the trip a very rough ride, they gave us travel sickness pills but unfortunately they didn’t work. I was ok though once we reached the fixed pontoon at the reef and got chance to do quite a bit of snorkelling and see lots of corals and different fish.

 Anyone watching the cricket, look out for me. I hope England make a good start so we can give some more stick to the Aussies!
