A young man was heading to a destination (Surfer Paradise, GC see top right city), circa 2008
I was trying to get the right angle to take my own picture that would show a long journey with a big dream. A nice guy from Great Britain greeted me and helped me take this picture that shows the journey perfectly. He then said, "All the best."
