I’ve always been in love with beaches. Sun, sea, surf – what’s there not to love?
That was why Mauritius was easily a dream destination.
I remember heading to Langkawi (or Penang?) when I was in the awkward stages of teenhood and telling my mother to not pack my swimming costume. I mean, hey, I was already facing body issues, no way was I going to swim in front of a group of people! But, oh boy, the moment all of us were gathered on the beach, I went WHAT THE HECK, WHO CARES? and jumped into the water with my t-shirt and shorts. (And sorely regret it after when I realised that I didn’t have anything to change into to head back to the hotel.)
I have since made better life decisions. I think.
Ah anyhoos, recently I have had the strangest inclinations. Call it growing up, external influences, a sudden need for change – whatever – but I have been attracted to mountains as of late. I mean, how can anyone not be, looking at the majesty of their being?
And I have the strongest desire to start hiking them.
Here’s a few that have caught my attention (and are making it to my bucketlist!)
*the following pictures aren’t mine, obviously.
I’m hoping to go on an adventure at at least one of these by the end of this year. Hopefully it’ll work out, inshaAllah! Any of you darlings have any tips for this newbie? 🙂
Oh, and I guess I’ve got to start training from now then.
Lots of love,
