“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 140 - 21st September, Monday, Turkey. Bayram day 2.
Spent the entire day snorkelling, swimming, chatting to Tom and Pat about the likelihood of us all getting on the ferry, waiting for the power to return to check the internet and then inventing meals to cook from the remaining items in the van.
