“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 286 – 14th February, Valentine’s Day – Port Campbell.
Not the most productive of days. Both feeling a little subdued. But we made the effort to walk the beach and the jetty in the morning before the rains came and we were forced back to the van. Cooking inside the van in the rain and competing for the stinkiest farts passed the time in the afternoon – such a romantic couple! (I did get a card this year though - Whooohooo – there’s hope for me yet! Lol.)
