Default In a land without sheep.

Strange title, I know, but I thought me being of the country origin I am, it seemed appropriate that that would be the thing I should notice now more than ever, after my return to my country.

This may turn out to be a long-winded story, but maybe something we've been missing a lot of here, is life experience, and tonight, I realise that i've not relived my experience - in words, nor in thoughts - fully, ever since I have come back from that amazing world I was allowed a brief time and part in.

As some of you might have guessed or remembered, or as some of you might not, being new here, I am talking about my experiences of ten weeks, living in and aroud the communities and jungles of Borneo.

I thought I would just start by posting all of my journal entries from the time there (which details quite specifically the trek part almost day-by-day and the experiences I had in the jungle itself, and what it is like to live there.), followed up after them all by some reminiscent times, and things I felt while there, that particularly stuck in my mind. I hope to read and type up entries on a per-night basis... (Excluding tonight, i'm a little tired right now. )

I don't really know the purpose of this thread, perhaps it doesn't serve much past personal memory, perhaps I need to simply state this as a closure of one chapter in my life, and the opening of a new one - due to the fact I am due to leave for University in 6 days... but I thought this would perhaps serve people as an inspiraton a little (maybe even a deterrent. ) to going somewhere and doing something like this, as well as offering an insight into what life can be like. I'd also love to hear anything that people would like to say about this, or any questions about it.

By going somewhere, do you mean going to a jungle or third world or sparsely inhabited area? I'm thinking about going somewhere as an exchange student next year.

I like the idea of reading those journal entries Fkeu. You shouldn't worry too much about not being able to rekindle that jungle experience that you've had..It's something completely unique and you're really lucky to have experienced it.

how do you find these oppurtunities, I was looking for summer jobs in Africa, and I found some at a wildlife conservation place, but you had to pay money to do the job, which I simply can't afford with also paying for college. Now I'd be fine doing a job I didn't get paid, but I can't afford one I have to pay to do, especially since they don't pay to fly you over. But how did you find this jungle job living in borneo? I mean I found some in Australia but it would just be picking/harvesting on a farm, and not actually living ln the jungle.

It seems like everybody is moving forward. As if there is some final goal they can achieve and get to. I don't get it though. When I look around, it seems like I'm already there, and there is nothing left to do.

I wish I could take just one hour of what I experience out in nature, wrap it in a box, put a bow on it, and start handing out to people
