“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 266 – 25th January, Monday, Stockton.
Back down to The ‘Gladdy’s’ today to load the jukebox with all the Big Day Out favourites. Narelle made us all a wonderful roast dinner (known as a ‘Bakedy’ over here) which was devoured outside by the pool. Starting to feel human again now. The after dinner show was an awesome thunder and lightning storm, with THE loudest crack of thunder I think I have ever heard.
