Before you get right into reading this, no this is not a hike about THE Grand Canyon, but a hike in the Australia’s famous canyon in the Blue Mountains. Now as you know me, any excuse to go hiking is a good excuse and when Justyna invited me to the Blue Mountains with her friend, I knew I had to go. I, however, didn’t expect her to sleep in and not show up at all, but as I was already geared up ready to go I decided to take on the challenge and go solo.
This was my first time ever going hiking to a remote area outside Sydney all by myself. I was pondering about which track to take and really wanted to climb Mount Solitary-a remote and challenging track for experienced bushwalkers only. The weather forecast didn’t agree with me as it was meant to rain and because of the track being rated hard, remote and involving exposed rock scrambling with both hands and feet, I decided to leave it for another time when I’m not by myself. A smart cookie, this one! I might have to find someone through Travello for this if Justyna keeps sleeping in. (Not the first time!)
