I’m Brando Yelavich, I’m currently riding a pushbike from west to east across the centre of Australia to lead by example and empower others to take care of their own mental wellbeing. Along the way I’m stopping at schools and sharing my message with as many people as I can. The best way to live a happy life is to learn about yourself and to do the things that make you happy. For us all nature is fundamentally important to our wellbeing, make sure you get up, out and into nature because the way I see it, it's just as important as food, water and air. Treat yourself like someone you love and live today as though tomorrow will never come.
Waking up in a room was much warmer than the last two mornings in the tent. Dylan was still asleep when I went to fetch our clean washing. It was so flithy before we washed it, especially because a lot of my clothes were covered in blood from the poor kangaroo. By the time I got back he was up, so we packed our gear onto the bikes and headed off back to the traders to get a few things and say thank you and goodbye to Pete. I got a bag of flour and some oil to make camp bread! I had the biggest grin on my face when I walked outside and told Dylan, I was already imagining pulling a hot flat bread off the fire and coating it with peanut butter. I had the most kiwi breakfast you could imagine (two steak and cheese pies) that was going to get me through the day!
