Day three Gold Coast – Manly

[singlepic id=8 w=320 h=240 float=none]
I miss my partner, doing this solo is just not as fun. I arranged to stay at Port Macquarie Backpackers and highly regret it. This is by far the worst place I have ever been and the manager, Tony was mean and cruel. NEVER STAY HERE. On a better note, Michael at Gordon Street Cycles across the road was awesome and their expert team gave my gears a tweak and tune!

While I was writing that last bit, Nic called and arranged another lodging – at Aston Hill! Yay! Can get a sleep, thanks Nic!! I didn’t realize riding these distances would be so hard. It’s not hard on the legs, it’s hardest mentally. I think it’s the mental strain that requires recovery, and for me that means a quiet and gentle space, kind people.

I really don’t understand why some people are ok to go out of their way to be mean? I got yelled at by some drivers today, and this manager at the hostel was going out of his way to be disrespectful to me. I’m really thinking about this, did I invite disrespectful by first showing it? Or did he just have a bad day and I’m an easy target? I don’t know, but it’s no fun, I need to invite fun back into this trip, cause at the moment it’s not scoring very high. I’ll meditate on the respect thought and hopefully with a good rest tomorrow will be better! XxKristina
