Status Update: On The Road
Victorian photographer, Ben Differding, spent the best part of 2010 overseas. During Ben's absence it wasn't unusual to receive Facebook updates from him lost in the outskirts of Prague, flying down an Autobahn, or on a mad 48 hour dash across Eastern Europe. Fair to say it wasn't your typical package holiday.
He's back home now yet the all-hour spontaneous updates have barely slowed: last-minute dashes to Moonlight Head, overnighters upcountry, or in this instance, a pre-dawn 200 kilometre hit out with his running mate, Todd Rosewall. Fortunately they're both subscribers to the credo that 'it's the journey not the destination that counts', cos the 200 kilometre trip provided just 20 minutes of surfing.
Somehow I don't think that was a worry.//STUART NETTLE
