Travelogue 15: ‘january sails 26.01.03’

Eight years ago today, when I was still a carefree backpacker, I posted this despatch from Western Australia. I had just stepped off the tall ship Windeward Bound after a three week voyage around the south west corner of Australia: Fremantle to Albany.

 

It’s a part of my trips that I talk about with most affection, the greatest sense of achievement and a feeling that experiences like this helped set my visit to the country apart from a more general (though enjoyable nonetheless) trip to Australia. If digital cameras had been the norm back then I’d have many images to add to this post; alas words will have to do.
