Driving along the highway, further and further from Sydney’s structured reach we start to encounter the trees. Soaked and skinny, Australian gum trees start crowding in around, the night air is thick with sweet eucalyptus and a transient spring storm. We’re 4 hours late from our arrival time after taking 3 wrong turns. Yes, we had iPhones with working maps. It didn’t matter, in the presence of good company time slips past like high tides, lost in each others stories we went off map and got lost. It’s adventurous and tiring and memory making.
