“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 82 – 25th July – Saturday, Manses near Mirepoix

Now staying a third night, this place is awesome. Went into the medieval town of Mirepoix and found a mad doctor who removed Ant’s staples before taking €30 off us, telling us about his youthful antics with the ladies in Eastern Spain and then pinching me on the dimples!... I don’t think anyone’s done that since I was about 9 years old.
