“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 70 – 13th July – Monday –FIB Heineken, Benicassim - Music Festival.
Arrived early enough to be the 3rd van there. First were Gary and Leslie from Scotland, then Crispijn and Hanne from Belgian. After us came Liam and Carly from Australia and then Phil(lippa) and Lee from Hertfordshire. All of us managed to chain 4-way cables to get some electricity, but our fridge is still not performing. After helping Phil and Lee erect their Gazebo in high winds, we spent the evening (until dawn) drinking with them; a hilarious, down-to-earth couple with our sense of humour.
