Roo Hugs

I was awoken at 2am by something grabbing my head. I peeked out of my sleeping bag to find this kangaroo hugging my face.


She kept trying to cuddle me and I just wanted to sleep. I've never had to shoo a kangaroo away, but I thought she may attack me (they're good boxers, you know) and so I was trying to be as gentle as possible.


The next morning I learned our farm was actually a kangaroo orphanage. *ah* it all made sense. And this roo 'Crystal' is notoriously needy.

My adventures across this globe continually reaffirm one thing: That our world, and its people, are amazing.

I've shared these Experiences in photo-filled stories since 2006, and now I'm also sharing lessons to equip others like you to travel simpler, connect with strangers, and embrace serendipity.
