Day 38 - The Joy of Kids

I had a restless night's sleep - so close to the finish and have picked up a ripper of an illness. The mocker is always real - I only bragged on my birthday about keeping my health relatively together during the walk - having not had any real sick days.

There was a moment when I went out to get some more ice and was faced again - if you will believe it - with my biggest issue of the trip. Racism.

Day 27 - The Beauty of Travel

There was no specific route I had in mind - I was going purely on feel and rhythm. It's one of the most unique feelings - no panic as you wonder where to sleep just raw excitement - contemplative on where the road will lead - focusing on the trip not the map.

Day 23 - Technology: The Game Changer

Here I am sitting in the middle of nowhere in India speaking on my mobile phone to my family in Australia via Whatsapp for free. Technology is an obvious game changer in the way we live our lives - having a significant influence in all facets.
