You know you’re in North Queensland when you drive by a giant mango.
Oh and lots of coconut trees.
There’s so much to take in, often I just have to stop to take it all on board.
Sometimes it’s simply a matter of breathing deeply and embracing it all, just as I’m doing here with Uluru on my shoulders.
It’s all about living in the moment, where ever we are.
That’s what this trip has been about for me.
From the simple joys of waking up to the sound of birds, to bitterly cold mornings that turned into gloriously warm spring days, every destination has held its delights.
The Campground has nothing yet it has everything.
Not to mention cold drinks and cooked meals across the road.
It could be another world, yet it’s still the same country I call home.
The red earth and dust has been replaced by coral reefs and sandy beaches, blue skies and an ocean of never ending possibilities.
Today we were lucky enough to be able to walk to a lighthouse island that is usually inaccessible.
It was the only day of the year where the tide was at its lowest enabling people to walk across to reach it.
That’s what I wish as we continue our journey. That no matter where we are we look for the unusual and the possibilities of life, knowing that anything is within our reach.
Nothing is perfect but with the right frame of mind we can always find the extraordinary, even in the ordinary moments.
I have to admit that not much I’ve seen on this trip could be classed as ordinary.
I look forward to catching up with all of you and to lots of reading when I get home in two weeks.
Till then stay safe and keep enjoying the journey.
