As an aficionado of travel and adventures, I have always been vocal that if I have plenty of money, I would splurge it into travelling rather than on shopping. Going to different places and connecting with nature give me a sense of hyperreality and an escapist feeling away from the hustle and bustle of city life and other stressors.
Trekking is currently one of the adventures I’d love to be involved more. Beating the rocky and steep trails is a challenge I will not, let’s just day, step down from.
Two treks in two days equal one unforgettable summer escapade. First day of trek was at Anawangin Cove in San, Antonio, Zambales. It took our group around 30 minutes to reach the top. Definitely, the activity was tiresome but you will surely forget the exhaustion once you reach the top of the mountainous part of Anawangin.
From Anawangin, our group trekked to Capones Island in Pundaquit, Zambales the following day. The way up was easier and the time was shorter compared to Anawangin. To see the overlooking view of the island, the last step is to go up the light house situated on top of Capones Island.
Finishing the trek felt so surreal and seeing the picturesque view brought me to a state of elation. If there’s one thing I learned from the trek, it is to overcome fears. Being afraid only makes us stagnant. I think it is fine to bring out our adventurous side once in a while. Consider the overwhelming natural view as your priceless reward.
