Sunday 12th

I had a slow morning with Glenda and Eleanor before saying goodbye and meeting my friend Lucy in town (who I know from when I first volunteered at Wollangarra in 2015).

After figuring out a plan for the day, Lucy drove her car to where we would finish the day...

Stepping off the Spirit of Tasmania and into Devonport I was a mix of emotions. I was glad to be able to get back on the road again; it was great to relax a bit and see friends in Melbourne but I felt as though I had been sucked into the city and lost the momentum of t...

Tuesday 31/10

My friend and namesake Dan O’Brien met me at Fraser’s house in the morning. Dan has previously worked at Mittagundi, the sister organisation to Wollangarra, and was the one who had organised my massage the night before. Today he would be walking with me th...

Camped on the edge of the Nepean Highway, it was inevitable that I would be woken early by the stream of traffic making its way to myriad destinations to begin a new day. Despite this I still managed to snooze through two alarms and wake up late. Overnight it had raine...

It’s interesting, even though I’m constantly on some type of road or path being passed by cars and getting stopped to talk to well-wishers, for the majority of the time I feel quite disconnected from civilisation. I have also begun to notice the difference between peop...

I woke up to a house quickly emptying of my hosting family, so made sure to get a photo before I was left to my own devices. Then after a quick breakfast I was away and heading to the Main Street of Barwon Heads to meet Catherine, whom I know from Wollangarra, with who...

Waking up to cars, trucks and buses passing metres from my tent, I packed up and got on the road the earliest of the whole journey this I morning, by around 7.15 am. It took some time for my muscles to warm up, but I stopped again in a cafe to charge devices as I would...

Sometimes we have good days, and sometimes they’re not so good. Today wasn’t really all that bad, but more than a few things happened that certainly curtailed the incredibly high spirits I had been maintaining.

Things looked good this morning, waking up on the beach to...

October 25, 2017

Today was a fairly routine day, if you can call spending the day navigating the undulations of the wrong side of the Great Ocean Road on foot routine. But in short, the scenery continues to outdo itself, the right shin continues to ache, and life goes on in a spectacul...

October 25, 2017

Waking up in a warm double bed was amazing, but I wished for just another hour of sleep. I breakfasted on muesli and the last of the yoghurt that my friends had brought me, then went over to Charles' office of the Skene Creek Beachside Caravan Park where I was staying....
