“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 276 – 4th February, Thursday. Eden.
Drove most of the morning to a place called Eden. I’m sure on a good day it is a beautiful place which lives up to its name, but unfortunately we could barely see out of the windscreen for rain, mist and condensation. Spent the afternoon in the van catching up on emails, uploading photos and drinking endless cups of tea.
