Damaging Damascus

Hey everyone,

Well it's been a little while since I've written up but I have plenty of updates to do it's just that I have been busy.. well, the truth is that it's been raining non-stop so I've been camping in my tent reading.

I arrived in Damascus on the 6th and seeing that I'm meeting up with Suzanne on the 12th I decided to camp about 500m out of town on the trail to avoid accommodation costs. Seeing as I am going to be here a little while I've bought an esky and have been providing a little trail magic via cold drinks for hikers before they reach town.

This had the unfortunate side effect of my breaking my kindle because I didn't realise it was in my pack when I loaded it up with a couple of cartons of drinks.
I was crest-fallen at this mishap seeing as I had become quite attached to the kindle and it's become part of my nightly camping routine reading for an hour or so before it got dark, so I've ended up ordering another from Amazon to replace it and it just arrived today and I'm charging it up.

That'll have to do for this quick update, as the library is about to close but I'll definitely be doing more write-ups soon..stay tuned


  1. Pity about the Kindle. Glad you're dispensing trail magic for others.

  2. Kindling has always been an important aspect of camping.
