Back to my roots


So you know you're entering fun new territory when you see signs like this for Cassawaries!! I was heading in to one of the oldest jungles in the world for a weekend off the grid. Welcome to the Daintree


This is Dave's house. Note the solar panels on the roof. Water is running straight from one of the creeks. We swam in many of the non-croc infested creeks, hung out on beaches with sea-eagles, checked out the mangrove flora and fauna.. and sampled the Wine Doctors resveratrol enhanced wine all while eating local produce and muggins here being introduced to fruit that tasted like creme caramel (called Abiu[s]).

Many of the worlds problems were solved this weekend in Cape Tribulation; however, as the solutions weren't documented in the moment, they have unfortunately been lost to mankind. I will have to go back up soon and chill wit' da junglists once more. Cheers Dave and Sarah...

Glad you enjoyed it.

Love the sign.

Hope Daintree never goes on fire, though your link makes it clear that there are already other greedy capitalist threats at work there.

Strictly speaking, they're probly not YOUR roots, but I bet there were lots of roots nonetheless! Sounds fantastic. Are there any human neighbours or just the wildlife?
