Hi David,

  由於種種原因,你的原始旅程計畫只進行到了10/27便暫時中止,轉而在Broome這個西北澳第一大城停留一個星期─調整存糧、保養車子,以及最重要的─確認身體狀況。

  猶如去年的噩夢重現,這段旅程的第一部分帶給你的就是一次次的痛楚。第一天出發時,只有坐在車上靜止的時刻,看著窗外流動的風景,你才能稍稍有種遠行的振奮。但是每次的上下車動作,就像一刀又一刀的劃過膝蓋痛覺神經,一再消磨你的意志。乃至於第二天進入Kalbarri National Park,為了一睹Nature’s Window所走的那一公里─是的,僅僅是一公里,對平常的你來說再短不過的距離,卻已經足夠讓你的精神與體力消耗殆盡。

  I know, you start to think going home – because of the unendurable pain.

  對於一個病人來說,這就像一個警訊,身體似乎在告訴你,這段漫長的旅程該劃下句點了…但隨著一個個城市的往北行進,穿過南回歸線進入熱帶,漸趨炎熱的氣候,竟也開始讓你的症狀快速緩和,到現在的行動自如,所以你才會選擇休息一個星期。當然旅程中碰到的車子問題是需要處理的,不過你就是想停下來確認及思考,這段旅程,究竟想告訴你什麼? 是身體承受不住了,還是來澳洲之後變得怕冷不怕熱的你,終究不是需要藥物,而是要再次沐浴在夏天的光和熱之下?

  You don’t have the answer now, so am I.

  那麼,既然身體狀況還可以,那就繼續走吧。可預見的是,你該是絕無僅有的北行旅人,獨行的路段是少不了的。但在到達最北端的Darwin之後,還是要南下到Alice Springs,去原住民的聖地Uluru朝聖─旅程計畫可能就到此為止了。之後到達東澳的大城市,就只剩下一個Sydney跨年的event,準備收拾行囊回家…

  屬於你自己的旅程即將開始,也即將結束。就讓自己,了無遺憾吧!
