“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 76 – 19th July – Sunday – The Killers
Went to the beach in Benicassim with Phil and Lee and caught up on some sleep before heading back to camp in preparation for the last night of live music. We decided that because The Killers weren’t on until 1am, we wouldn’t go in until a bit later and drink at the van instead (the beer is €7.50 per litre once inside!). So after a few sangrias we made it inside with Liam and Carly and some more Aussies from a few vans up (pictured completing some bizarre ritual involving tying your T Shirt round your head!?). Excellent night and loved The Killers. Joined Gary and Leslie at their van for a nightcap before crashing about 5am.
