I was out jungle trekking yesterday – and all I can say is:
It was like one of the best experience I ever had in my whole life! I went up the hill, down the hill, jungle fruit hunting, river crossings etc. At one point, I actually had to cross a river by walking on small bridge made out of a fallen tree. While everyone else made their way safely to the other side, I accidentally stepped on a rotten branch – and I fell fashionably into the river! ¬¬
Anyway, nobody brought camera along with them – which sucks. I didn’t have my compact camera with me, nor do I want to drag my DSLR along with me. Even our cellphones were left behind because there wouldn’t be any reception at all. I think. (I wonder if anyone brought along some blemish acne cream during the trip. LOL)
Overall, it was a fun trip …..but I don’t plan to do it again in the near future. Maybe in a year or two later. Very tiring lah! My body’s all aching right now, especially on the hip side – where it landed first when I fell into the river. Ha! Ha! Ha! Oh, I broke a few fingernails along the way. There’s also a few visible scratches and cuts on my right hand – thanks to the thorn infested jungle plants and wild pineapples that grows along the paths.
Next time, I’m taking my cellphone (stuffed inside a water-resistant container, of course) so I could take a few photos to show off. :þ
