TRAVEL EXPERIENCES: Mountain Climbing
Why do I climb?
Mountain climbing is definitely a different experience, for me. It challenge us physically, mentally and emotionally. (ofc + financially LOL) In my case despite of having an asthma, it is challenging for me to climb but there is something that drives me to continue to rise above my limitation and conquer all the challenges. Why? I do keep climbing to reborn, refresh again and again. There is nothing wrong about being born again. It is just to find your own self, to find the truth and what is important in your life.
(At the peak) First climb was at the Mt. Batulao located at Nasugbu, Batangas. (for more info visit pinoymountaineer.com) The first time was a surreal experience and of course I owe it to Ms. Gladys, my classmate. And ofc, the few members of Cavite State University Mountaineers. (More photos here FB/ Ghulli Ghush)
(At the campsite) Second climb was at the Mt. Pico De Loro situated at Ternate, Cavite. (Visit pinoymountaineer.com for more info) It was a birthday climb of my cousin Ann. We celebrated her birthday at the mountain with Ms. Anna, her friend and we ate Ensaymada as her birthday cake. We didn't reached the peak one and the monolith due to the strong wind because it was December and it was very cold. But it was fun and challenging at the same time cause we got lost LOL THANK GOD we found our way back.
(Peak one, Second time at Mt. Pico de Loro) So, my third climb was at Pico again and this time YAASS! I reached the the two peaks. What a view!? I think that was the Boracay De Cavite as you can see on the photo and the Crocodile Island in Batangas, if i'm not mistaken.
(Monolith or the Parrot's beak as they called, the peak two) and YAAASS! I made it to the top. see! Me and Ma'am Nora holding each other and were like flying!! FULFILLED! :like:
(Closer portrait at the peak two) Two thumbs up for the gay who reached the top of the world LOL Hi to Te Ann and Te Lyds who's behind me. If you will notice them.
(At the peak) My fourth time was at Mt. Calvary (Kalbaryo) located at Quezon Province. Im not sure about the exact location but it is also situated near Mt. Banahaw, info pinoymountaineer.com It was holy week when we climb at Kalbaryo and that was very mystical adventure. I was culture shocked, never thought of what is happening around me at that time. My heart was left there so I must go back there every holy week or might not just holy week. I can't tell everything of the story and I'm sorry for that but I will post a story related to this or just ok just in the near future. <3
