“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 17 – 21st May 2009 – Thursday, Orthez

Although it was another ‘dead battery day’, we managed to walk into town, see the medieval Pont Vieux, take some snaps of a stag beetle feasting on some berries and walk back again. Weather is pants.
