    Life is just on the other side of fear

    August 19, 2015 ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Looking back years ago from now, I would never have thought I would do the things I've done today.

    Fear is a funny thing, holding you back from real living.

    Monday I saw the rainforest at his best. For 7.5 K I actually flew over the Barron Gorge National Park. Just metres above the foliage of skyhigh ancient trees, looking straight down into the depts of the rainforest. Feeling free from fear and being able to really submit to this adventure, I think is the best thing this day has brought me.

    The same feeling came over me yesterday when I was off sailing the Great Barrier Reef. For I didn't bring my tablets for seasickness, I already heard some horrible stories and just forced my breakfast... I could feel my stomache turning just now.
    When we came on to the boat our funny host did an introduction, spreading seasicknesspills for, as he said; the backpackers like the free stuff :)... I decided not to take one.

    We sailed to the outer Reef and went snorkeling on two magnificent sights. I've never really had much up with fish. I just cant be bothered staring at fish or go to an aquarium. And to be honest I never really liked the idea of fish touching me. 😝. You can imagine I never really thought snorkeling was for me.

    Boy, was I wrong! I had seen some coral before but when I finally got used to breathing throw the tube and the fact that I was floating in this deep ocean, I found this reef as one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
    Sadly, I wasn't able to take pictures so you would have to believe me on my word. Like you probably heard before the variety and colors of the fish and the coral, and even swimming within two metres of a shark, I can't descripe, only one word came to me then: majestic.

    While waving on the sundeck, overlooking the wide ocean, the sun sprakling on the waves, I sincerly loved it, like I never thought I could.

    Walking trail

    August 14, 2015 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Ik ben gisteren toch een beetje eigenwijs geweest, ik kan namelijk heus wel tegen n beetje zon 😁.

    Het was gister heerlijk aan the lagoon en ik ben ook heerlijk ontspannen 'thuis' gekomen gisteren maar ik had toch mn oogleden verbrand, verkoolde knieholtes en n beetje opgezette lippen 😂.

    Vandaag dus maar WEL goed ingesmeerd en n beetje uit de zon gebleven.

    Met m'n pet op ben ik naar de Botanisch tuinen geweest, fantastisch gekke plantjes en bloemtjes bekeken en heerlijk door het tropische park gelopen. Waarna ik begonnen ben aan het (kortste) walking trail. Laat de naam je niet van de wijs brengen, zoals ik deed, het was een klimpad en geen looppad... Wout, ik heb vandaag dus ook legday gehad en kan morgen misschien niet meer lopen van de spierpijn. Ik had wel een mooi uitzicht en wellicht kan ik morgen weer in de zon 😄.

    De meeste foto's staan op mn camera maar ik heb er een paar genomen als bewijs:

    Travelling through time

    August 12, 2015 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    I don't know exactly what time it is, with you, here on air or where I'm heading. I don't know exactly how many hours I've slept or been awake today... Fact is; I'm having breakfast. It must be morning somewhere. 😊

    But I can't complain: I'm sending you this message over n lovely sandwich while charging my phone and believe it or not on some sort of WiFi.

    I have not communicated, not a single word with my neighbour for he fell asleep almost 10 hours ago. Which I can't say I mind. Still i feel strangely close to him since we slept next to eachother, constantly moving in de same directions so we won't snor directly into eachothers faces. And all of that under the self made sky of stars by Emirates.

    ...

    I promised you to tell nothing but the truth: WiFi did not work after all and I forgot to tell you that we did had quite some turbulance, I almost had to get rid of my midnight pizza. But I did not panic! Maybe because of the gardian angel around my neck or the fact that the guy next to my had a tattoo on his neck that said lucky. Couldn't be a bad thing to sit next to someone who is apparently very lucky. 😜

    Not just there yet...
