I quote the author next:
"For years now, of my life’s goals has been to scuba dive at the Great Barrier Reef. It may just have something to do with growing up in Alberta, the most bland, colourless, and featureless place on Earth, but pictures of the reef always made it look like the most beautiful place possible.
A few months ago, I finally made the trip. Not to dwell on the negatives, but here’s approximately what it cost:
Flight to Melbourne – $1500
Flight to Cairns – $500
Hotel in Cairns – $150
Dive boat rental – $200
Dive cost – $120".Click on "See more" to read the end of the story.
