We’re going on a mountain adventure…
When researching on places to visit, we decided to take up the challenge of climbing Mount Kinabalu on the island of Borneo, in East Malaysia. We’ve always loved the outdoors and we’ve done some hiking and jungle trekking in the past but neither of us have actually climbed a mountain. Not one that is 13,455 ft high! Obviously we love the challenge and we’re convinced this climb will be a great experience.
In preparation for our hiking adventure, we’ve been doing lots of stair climbs and morning hikes. Every week we’ve been climbing up and down Jacob’s Ladder!
The view on the hill after our climb is always amazing. We get a free cardio workout with a breathtaking view of Perth city!
On other days we go on hikes around Kings Park. And this is why I love being outdoors. There’s so much to see, smell and enjoy. I’m so grateful that we have this mass of park space to explore and take in all of natures beauty!
So…we fly off next Thursday and begin our mountain trek on my birthday, 6th June. We’re hoping to reach the summit within two days. Although a little nervous, I’m also keen to celebrate my birthday on a mountain for the first time. Wish us luck! And stay tuned for a mountainous post about it:)
