“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

Day 48 – 21st June 2009 – Sunday, Fuseta, The Algarve.
Ant got up to perform some routine checks on the rear brakes this morning at the same time as looking to make sure the noise we had been hearing was nothing to worry about. The good news is the noise was nothing to worry about and the brakes are all fine, but the not-so-good-news is that he noticed one of the brand new CV boots has split on the driver’s side and so we need to get hold of a new one before we do too many more miles on these unmade roads. Went to the beach to think about a plan.
