120 Mile Solo Hike. Asked An Elderly Passerby To Take A Photo For Me


I checked it right away but he struggled enough with the touch screen that I didn't ask him to take another. I think I was walking toward him to help him with the camera and CLICK. Too late. He was such a nice old man as well. He put so much effort in to trying to work that touch screen. Bless.

I Was In New York For The First Time In My Life


My wife and I spent almost 10 hours on a plane, crossed the Atlantic Ocean and flew 7,500 kilometres. We climbed the top of the rock to enjoy a view of Central Park. We had only one day in New York and this view will always be with us.

10 Years Ago I Climbed The Volcano Of Bali "Mount Agung" 4 Am In The Morning To See The Beautiful Sunrise


It was the very end of a 9 months backpacking trip, and I skipped an important and beautiful scuba diving lesson to do it. I had to get up at 3 am for the drive to reach the base of the volcano. My best friend and only travel companion at the time was too lazy to join me, leaving me alone with a Balinese guide that knew not a word of English.

We reached the end of the road at around halfway up the volcano with ~1½ hours left of steep hiking on wet rugged rocks.

In silence, the monolingual guide and I accented, and the higher we went, the more I realised how grossly I had underestimated the freezing temperatures at the top of the volcano - Not wearing any jacket at all.

We finally reached the top 15 minutes before the sunrise, inside a dense and moist cloud, giving us with a visibility of 5-10 meters (16-32 feet) and our cloth and skin utterly soaked.

#3 Can't complain too much about being on Maui, but... my trip to Haleakala: same fog; massive crippling headache from the drive up; bee sting on my ear, under my helmet (biking down); bee sting reaction spread to both ears and throat over the next couple of *weeks*. ...But the 500-year storm which preceded it, and which took out roads, closed schools, and left us housebound in 100+-degree heat and humidity most of the first half was worse (Autumn '02). However... when the storm passed, it was the most beautiful place I've ever seen, and I've been to some of the most beautiful places in the world. So I got over it.
