“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 252 - 11th January, Monday. Moonie Beach.

Today is the day campsites should calm down and get less busy. Apparently this is the day that Australians usually go back to work after their summer/Christmas holidays.

So far on the trip I don’t think we have fallen as much for New South Wales as we did for Queensland in the north. The people are less friendly and the campsites twice the price. The scenery is as green, but the towns are much larger and more built up. Maybe it’s because we are in the middle of school summer holidays here, but it seems that the Australians here are much less sociable than they were in the North.
