Impromptu Hike



I got out of the train, saw a couple looking at their phone and their tablet, obviously tourists.  I walked up to them asking if I could help.  It turned out that they were looking for the War Veterans Cemetery.  Right before I got off the train, I was thinking to myself that I should walk around and take some pictures, seeing that I already had the camera out with me.  I offered to lead them to the cemetery myself and once there I decided to walk the hiking trail all the way home –in my high-heeled boots, up and down the trail, let me add. If I’d taken the minibus, I could’ve been home in less than 10 minutes.  Instead, it took me 1.5 hours.  Painful though my feet are now, I’m glad I did what I did.  Because…. look what I found!

I like your spirit: go do it on the spur of the moment. Always good to be spontaneous! All the best, Bonny

Lesson learned, walking shoes and the camera go hand-in-hand. In return for your generosity there is this beautiful photo. So simplistic... Thank you for sharing your story.

Definitely worth the sore feet for the adventure, the feet will recover you can never have that moment back.
