“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 245 – 4th January 2010, Monday – and we’re off again.
Crossed into New South Wales and struggled to find anywhere to stop, passing fave surf spots such as Cabarita and Hastings Point and ending up at a hippy place near Wooyung Beach where the flies were simply relentless. Ant disappeared with his board, only to return shortly afterwards, still bone dry, with a face that said ‘not on your life’! So we ate, sulked, and slept. Such a comedown from the luxuries of Mundoolan.
