What is your camel trip?
I read Tracks the winter of 2015 after purchasing it in Uluru at a camel farm while exploring Australia’s Northern Territory. When lending it to a friend, I noted a few lines I’d highlighted and thought I’d share them.
Tracks is a personal account of Robyn Davidson’s 1977 solitary Australian adventure from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean. As the front cover blurb states, “One woman’s journey across 1,700 of Australian outback.”
The following quotes appear on the last page before the postscript.
“The two important things that I did learn were that you are as powerful and strong as you allow yourself to be, and that the most difficult part of any endeavour is taking the first step, making the decision…Camel trips, as I suspected all along, and as I was about to have confirmed, do not end or begin, they merely change form.”
The author’s words reflect what she discovered about herself on this adventure and, I believe, are applicable to all. What is your camel trip?
I’d welcome your comments. Hope you enjoy these photos from my travels in Australia’s Northern Territory.
