I finally made it to Australia but I didn’t have a lot of time off the ship in Cairns. The big thing to do in Cairns is to go to the Great Barrier Reef to do a dive or even a snorkel. That really would have been fun to do and see. I did, however, manage to get myself into an espresso bar in between checking out the town. This was MUCH more exciting then getting a glimpse of the Great Barrier Reef (sigh). Bang is a swank little espresso bar in the small town of Cairns. It was really nice in there with friendly staff. They put an artsy spin to their espresso as shown above. Nice touch! We also had some Gelato. I couldn’t decide between 2 flavors, the Honeycomb Crunch or the Anzac Cookie, so I got both to share with the group. They were so good. I think the Anzac Cookie is a traditional Australian flavor because I have not heard of it before and it was the only one with a Australian flag on the sign. So if your ever in the town of Cain and are not going to see the reef (sigh), stop by Bang for a cup and some Gelato.
