Backpacking and Bipolar II. Taking Manic Depression on tour.
So after a five hour drive (short by Australian standards I’m led to believe) we arrived in Hope Vale. We stopped once for fuel and once at Baron Gorge. I’ve included photos of the new manor-house and some photos from the top and bottom of Baron Gorge.
I was a little bit worried that a move of this scale would upset me somehow or make me anxious but I’m pleased to say that having spent a day unpacking, a day out visiting waterfalls and having met my future employer (hopefully) I’m feeling like this was absolutely the right thing to do. There are a few niggling worries but isn’t there always? Life’s looking pretty peachy about now.
I found that the multiflex pass I bought through STA travel, who organised my flights, isn’t 3 flight changes amounting to one full trip (Aus to Hongkong, Hongkong to London, London to Manchester) but is instead 3 full changes. I’ve rearranged my flights home for November and if I can afford the return flight to Australia I’ll be going home to see my family in Nov. If not – I’ve got two more date changes available to me. Bonus!
Here’s the new place:
