The jungle birds woke us at 530am and we cooked some breakfast before heading over to reception to book our outer reef dive and wander into the village for supplies. I decided to spend my birthday dollars on a body board from the billabong shop (thanks Mungo and Rain. Xx) but won’t be using it just yet as we are still in box jellyfish season and I’m not that brave.
The heat and humidity is stifling, so a welcome dip in the pool and a few cold tinnies whiled away the afternoon. Such a hard life!
“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
