Virtual Barrier: the Whitsundays
Just as I approach the 40% milestone (and another tree planted) I (virtually) make it to the Whitsunday islands.
The email postcard starts off by telling me:
Hamilton Island is located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsunday Islands. Imagine swaying palm trees, white sandy beaches, and easily accessible coral reefs. The Traditional Owners of the Whitsundays were the Ngaro people. In the mid-1800s, Europeans settled in the region as sugarcane farmers, graziers, and loggers. By the late 20th century Hamilton Island was turned into a tourist destination. Privately owned, only a third of the island is developed. The rest remains in its pristine, natural condition.
Plus it looks absolutely breathtaking.
I continue to make progress on this one, a little each day. 1317 miles feels insurmountable and yet I’m chipping away at it, more than 550 miles already completed.
Wishing you progress on your projects as well!

TLR: Still a thing
I don’t mention this one much any more. There’s no borders left to cross on The Longest Route and I started this challenge back before Russia attacked Ukraine. So virtually trekking Russia (which is all I have left of it) seems like a weird choice now.Continue reading “TLR: Still a thing”
