A spontaneous journey through the wilderness of one's choosing in an effort to satisfy one's itchy feet, a need to be elsewhere, the craving for the open road, that space over the horizon...yes... something like that... you can't quite touch it so you have to go find it because it's you just know it's there...Or maybe it just feels good to go walking around ... :wink: Yeah. It's WALKABOUT.
See me waving 'see ya later' as I disappear over the horizon. :)
Usually the recount of the trek is exaggerated to add extra excitement and trill. The trek in actual fact is usually very dull.
Walkabout's really have no logical reason or appeal other than to combat boredom with adventure. Many people who participate in walkabout's are usually told their "crazy" and "are gonna get themselves killed one day".
dazza: Tell us about it
benj: Well, I was walking down past Eungella and saw this huge brown belly on the side of the road, didn't see it until I was right over it, bit me leg, thought I was a goner, but these hippies came by and took me to the hospital, bloody life savers, they are!
dazza: You're a bloody legend
Walkabout is basically the most amazing thing ever and only once you have experienced it will you know. It's like a cult and all the walkabout years are family.
ex 2:"Hey bra, I went up to the red light district for some nookie and this bad bitch wanted it, but I knew she wasn't clean. Treated that bitch to a Walkabout."
