Sometimes you have the opportunity to meet people who can completely blow you away; floor you in a remarkable sense.  Sometimes these people are good for you and sometimes they are not.  Either way, these people, these Hurricanes, are an important part of life on the road.

Nhulunbuy: My Tropical Paradise

Nhulunbuy is almost as remote as you can get. Built into the coast in Northern Territory, it is surrounded by the famous Arnhem Land and was once completely owned by Rio Tinto. Arnhem Land itself is a vast wilderness in the northeast corner of Australia’s Northern Territory, defined by rocky escarpments, gorges, rivers and waterfalls. White sandy beaches are beautiful but treacherous, inhabited by sharks and stingers as well as crocodiles, and, on the occasion, angry locals.
