I met Anne and Nico the last day of their long journey in Australia. Anne spent 2 years in Australia and Nico one year and half. Each of them wanted to share with me a different story. Anne : ‘Australia … What a good country to meet someone you will love forever… I’m joking ! We met in Margaret River, best place to stay for a year and discover the Australian lifestyle. Good walk, good beaches, no one, good wine, good experiences …’ Nico : Nico wrote a poem. I unfortunately can’t translate it in English in order to not misrepresent the meaning and each word he chose. French speakers, this is for you. “A l’orée de tes jours Me voilà sac à dos $ Respirant l’avenir d’amour Nourrissant l’envie de mes mots J’arrive à Perth et reste Deux jours sans respirer Et des poussées à retraite L’aventure nous inspire La routine s’installe Et les rencontres se mêlent D’un coup je croise tes sommeils Alors nos rêves d’un râle Nous promettent le voyage Comme si sur ta vague La lumière sans ombrage Guidait nos pressages”
Since we started to travel it’s obvious nothing is the same as before. Indeed, we learned to be more minimalism. We’re living in a 4wd and we came here just with a backpack, so no room for anything superfluous. That permits us to be aware of what is very essential and obviously essentials thing we can count them with our hands.
