In the Blue Mountains in Australia sits a waterfall, that if you stray slightly from the walking path and climb over a fence you can jump onto a landing and stand beside it. This waterfall has the best view of the valley, where thousands of eucalyptus trees grow in the hot glaring sunshine and billions of leaves mix with a gentle blue glow. Looking out at this view, with the waterfall behind me, was a pivotal moment for me. I felt I had truly arrived – physically, mentally and emotionally – in Australia, and an adventurous road lay before me. Possibility hung in the air like the blue haze over the valley, and I was ready for the next chapter.
