My Very First Open Hiking Trip

The original promo banner I used to post on facebook.

I always had difficulty finding hiking mates. Maybe I am picky after all in picking them or the reality, nobody wants to hike with me. Huk huk. Some girls whom I hiked with said that I'd leave them behind if they hiked with me. When in truth I'm a changed person. I know now how important it is to stick in a group. They don't believe me. :(

So a few months back, I did something that I thought I'd never do. Organize an open trip to some of the mountains I've so wanted to climb since last year and promote it on Facebook. I wasn't looking for a "herd" to join the trip... just a minimum 4-5 people was sufficient. Max up to 10 people would be nice too... though I think it's a bit too many people to handle! (Had experienced handling 11 people on a trip to Bali and I didn't LIKE IT!!!)

Eventually I had some several parties interested in joining me. Some also tried persuading me to join their trip instead because they were climbing the same mountains on the same dates. Haha. And some just wanted to know how I get my local guide contacts in Indonesia. Huh?! I finally managed to get 4 people to join the trip and..... it just happens... that they were all MEN!!! Oh well... the trip must go on. The mountains are calling!!!

On another note, it has long been a week since I came back home from the hiking trip and I can't seem to move on from it. It was ah-mazingggggg and decided to blog about it after so many months on hiatus mode from it. Haha! #bloggermurtad

Till next post... (needs to arrange pictures and such...)... tata!

Saya pulak jenis plan hiking last minute, selalu rasa bersalah nak ajak orang sbb last minute sgt. Actually suka randomly ambik train to any towns - pastu cari nearest hiking trails. Mujur Czech ni kecil je dan gunung nya tak setinggi di Malaysia. Day trip is enough. Yeay
