Australia: The Overland Track 2011 - Update
|Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake|
Unfortunately, the flight over was not kind to me. I awoke ten hours into my final leg, to find my back had seized up. For those that have not had back pain, it is difficult to comprehend, but it is not just your back that suffers. For days afterwards I was experiencing pain in my legs and arms which is particularly worrying after a long haul flight. Sleep was also an issue, affected not only by the pain, but the time difference as well. Add to that the guilt and anxiety I was feeling for potentially ruining Paul and Maria's trip, I was experiencing the odd panic attack as well!
