Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award Adventurous Journey!

- Credit to Hai Minh Nguyen 11I - 

As part of our Duke of Edinburgh International Award, we got the delightful chance to go on a five-day expedition to Dalat, concurring Mt Bidoup (2,287 metres) - or as some would put it, 1/4th of Everest!

Our trip began with the navigation of the treacherous terrains of Lotte Mart, desperately scavenging for appropriate sustenance to keep us going for the next few days. We had to cook our own meals - from scratch. If one were to strictly follow the dietary philosophy of ‘you are what you eat’ , we were fated to become packets of instant noodles and stale sandwiches for the days to come.

The rest of the journey mainly consisted of walking uphill for hours on end whilst carrying our temporary regret, the impending notion that there’s more to come tomorrow and backpacks weighing the weight of a small child. However, we also had the chance to take a quick dip (fully clothed and with life jackets) in a stunningly picturesque river by the mountains - a perfectly charming scene, ignoring the fact that said river was bitterly and bone-chillingly cold. It was up by the mountains after all.

Yet despite all the challenges that camping in the wild entails, for me personally it was still an oddly enthralling experience - bordering on bewitching in fact. It may have been the crisp mountain air in the morning or the whistling sounds of wildlife under a starry sky at night that enticed me to come back another year after having suffered through Bronze in year 10. Even though trekking does come with its difficulties , I would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to have an incredible once in a lifetime experience or simply skip three days of school.

P.S: The desperation and boredom due to a lack of WiFi and 3G lead me down the dark route of composing a meager poem which I was told I could include, so lo and behold:

Trek

Trekking. How charming! how endlessly fun!

We walked and limped and crawled and soldiered through

Rocky roads, prickly pine woods - heat of sun!

Until our distant rest we marched till two!

Backs burdened by an eager camper’s load,

Curevely crippled though with old age bent;

Fumbling , trudging , panting , crying pains untold,

We moped, moaned and meandered our ascent.

Yet with sour day’s sweet end on tip of tongue

We walked and limped and crawled and soldiered through.

Hell bent; a carrot on a stick we clung…

Euphoria! Bid our ordeal adieu!

Dare claim all that suffering insufficient,

The crackly choirs of our cries, abundant.
