A Hike Through Guangzhou

27 maart 2017

You can be pretty confident saying your out of your comfort zone when your hiking up strange territory in the dark with a heavy backpack. That was a constant theme though out the trip.

At every step you where pushed twice as hard as you thought you could go and three times more then you wanted to. There were times when you wanted nothing more to go home and have a cup of hot coco and sit by the TV and never leave. But when you got there you felt like you'd conquered the world. This trip taught you to never given in, take everything in stride and plan ahead carefully. Either that or get stuck in a forest on the top of a mountain feeling miserable. What's more you don't just learn about yourself, you learn about everyone else. It can be hard to stay positive putting up a tent in the pouring rain or slipping down a slope slick with mud and grim. Yet many people try there best to keep up moral; laughing, joking, just trying to have fun. Make no mistake this was not a easy trip; you can ask anyone who went. But you came back with story's, memories and more blisters then you can count. Its all about leaving your comfort zone and finding it's actually does you good when you do.
