“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 84 – 27th July – Monday
We headed north along the coast towards Sete and drove along a thin stretch of land with the sea on one side and a lake on the other and decided to stop – along with literally hundreds of other mobile homes; they stretched as far as the eye could see down the beach. Unfortunately, the road didn’t quieten down at night, so sleep was a little patchy.
