My husband and I went trekking a week ago. I’m glad he was with me because although I love nature, I have no idea how to survive once I’m out there. He packed lightly but I was surprised to find several sneaker bars, a sulfur soap, a first aid kit, plenty of water, binoculars, whistle, head protection and many more items that only exist in survival kit for newbies.
As for the said trek, it was a very tiring 3-hour climb and an hour and a half 4×4 rough ride back and forth. It was painful and although the view was pretty magnificent, I don’t see myself repeating the trip any time soon. I’m glad for the experience, that’s for sure. But to go through it all again? I’ll have to think about it in 3 or 4 years.
