Despite being a city boy in the grandest sense of the word, there is a part of me that still enjoys going back to the wild and just roughing it. It’s the other end of the extreme for me. Forget the overpriced $10.95 commercialised latte. Forget the free wireless broadband on the streets. Forget luxuries and things we take for granted. Sometimes we just have to leave everything behind and find out what we’re really made off.
Of course, that doesn’t mean I can’t bring my camera with me.
First you’re happy because you caught something. Then you’re anxious because you don’t want to stuff it up. Then pissed off because it’s not reeling in. Then disappointed because it doesn’t look like a fish. Then laugh your head off when you realise you just pulled out water weeds instead of a fish.
The thing is though, I have over 200 pictures from the trip and there is no way I can fit in every one of them. So what you could do is head on over to my gallery and then you can go through every one of them. It’s worth it if you don’t think you’re going to be heading into the wilderness and crawling through any caves. But hey, weekends like this, they are worth living through it if you can stomach it all. No point being a city slicker if you can’t enjoy what it’s like to have all the luxuries.
Some things in life are worth reminded of its value after all.
