As wonderful as the Jamboree experience was, coming back was difficult. I’d missed school for the entire month of January and now I had to make it up as well as learn the current curriculum. It was very difficult. Also, I had fallen in love with Australia and my greatest desire was to, some day, return. To that end, I embarked on another journey a few years later. That story will be forthcoming some time in the future.
Meanwhile, the memory of that adventure lingers on.
