I took the lead today, navigating without a map. This was the tourist trail of Adelaide for Clement, and cycling in extremely known territory for me. Past Mt Lofty – the highest hill behind Adelaide. Past Cleland National Park where you can pat the koalas. Past the city, along the river, along the beach. It’s unreal being here. It doesn’t feel part of this world trip, so familiar is everything, but it is. It is the end. The final chapter of this life-changing journey.

Mt Lofty

  1. Hooray!! Congratulations! “It is the end” , rings with a finality of achievement. What a journey, I have enjoyed seeing the amazing diversity of landscape, the vast distances, from high altitudes back down to the coast. I hope there is a book to come, or video footage?
