Hiking Through Easter’s Wilderness

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.

Sunday Drivers
What’s the point of having 4 wheel drive when you’re stopping every 10 seconds and not hurtling through the bumpy dirt trail?

Burn Baby Burn
Don’t hate us cause we’re Satan’s Spawn.

Moonlight over the trees.

Well, at least we know these hiking boot are as fire proof as they are water proof.

Skippy's Here
Time for the cleaners to clean off the scraps we couldn’t finish.

Wood Stockpile
Rest assured that we won’t be running out of wood any time soon.

Tourist Thing
You find a good scenery to take. You take your time to snap the photo. Then someone just had to pop right in and do that Japanese tourist thing. Priceless.

Macro Cave
We went caving. This is one of the better pictures.

Pointy Roof
Ok, that’s a lie. This is also one of of those better pictures.

Mel’s a city girl who hates caves. I couldn’t resist snapping this off.

It hurt. God it hurt to get here. But seeing it as it was. You know it had to worth every moment of pain.

Fly Away
Dozens of beautiful pictures of the cave and I had to snap this up. But you got to admit though, it would beat those limestone formations any day.

My Kingdom For A Fish
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.

Yes. We’re packing up.

The Endless Road
On the road again. With a map and GPS, so you know you’re in the middle of nowhere.

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.

  1. hahaha, the “Japanese tourist thing” made me crack up.

    Looks like you guys had a lot of fun! Lots more excitement for your Easter than mine, I’ll admit. We…did nothing. :B Though I did watch South Park’s “Easter Special.” How very religious of me.

    Oh, on a big side note, coming here from Google Reader is read by your site that I’m coming from Google’s search engine. It is trying to give me related posts, but since I didn’t actually come from the search engine, it views it as an empty search string. Here’s what I get:

    Seeing that you came here from http://www.google.com searching for “”. These posts might also be of interest:

    Maybe a plugin glitch? Not sure! Just thought I’d let you know!

  2. Haha, you should go out camping with your mates one of these days in the Australian wilderness. It’s definitely something worth doing while you’re here anyway. No more staying at home watching South Park during the holidays. Go out!! Have a ball even if I have to take you out myself!! 🙂

    I think it is a plugin glitch. It’s not meant for those coming through Google Reader. I’ll see what I can do with that little problem. Thanks for letting me know. 🙂
