“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 96 – 8th August, Saturday – Comacchio (Po Delta)
Headed North East for the coast and reached the Po Delta just south of Comacchio. An amazing salt and fresh water flatlands by the sea. We are at a camper area as opposed to a campsite (much much cheaper, more basic and far friendlier). The area is alongside the Logonovo Canal and backs onto the ‘Salina’ (saltworks) where wildlife and water birds are promised in abundance.
