This is the post in which you will be bombarded with photos. Additionally, you get a pros and cons list of the trip (tramping/trekking/hiking/walking) I went on in which all these photos were taken.
Pro: Beautiful outdoors (as seen above)
Con: Beautiful outdoors deciding to rain when it wasn’t supposed to.
Pro: Getting to read (and finishing a book- The Fine Art of Keeping Quiet) due to being stuck in tent because of rain.
Con: Tent leaked. Wet sleeping bag, wet thermarest, tent which could be advertised as ‘cold indoor swimming pool’.
Pro: Going on a scavenger hunt with 2 6/7 year olds.
Con: Being stuck in small tent with three 6/7 year olds who have far too much energy. Suffering through the world’s most excruciating game of Last Card (uno) that went on for far, far too long.
Pro: Rain stopping when we start walking.
Pro: Snacks (CHOCOLATE, muesli bars (that’s granola bars for Americans), crackers, nuts)
Con: Coldness persisting.
Pro: Beautiful camping site.
Con: No water at campsite.
Pro: Lots of grass to amuse aforementioned 6/7 year olds. They make slides down the hill and a grass museum with lots of things made out of grass.
Con: Deciding to read Never Always Sometimes only to discover that you’re on the last page. (This, I believe, is a disadvantage of e readers.)
Pro: More beautiful nature and no more rain.
Con: Lack of wifi.
Pro: Getting to the road end and having an amazing picnic with food from a supermarket and fresh fruit.
Do you like the outdoors? (more importantly, would you sacrifice wifi for outdoors?) What beautiful nature is near you? Does this look magical? (and there is only one answer to that) What do you do in your holidays?
