Valentine Adventure (Canyoneering)

Happy Monday, dearies!

I hope Valentines day was not giving you a hang-over (of any sorts). 😀 Because, it did give me some. tehehe..

But this hang-over is so worth it. Got this from our canyoning activity last Saturday. Here’s a teaser.

Canyoning or Cayoneering as defined in my dictionary is the sport of exploring canyons by rafting, swimming, climbing, etc.

We just did that!!! And yeah!  WE SURVIVED!!!

The Team

It was a five-hour trekking, cliff jumping, swimming, crawling, climbing. It was quite exhausting but it’s worth the adventure. Look at these happy faces.

Say, “We survived!”

We’re not able to bring our cellphones and cameras because we didn’t have a waterproof bag for them. So we rented a Go-Pro but it turned out that it was not really the original one, thus the photos are not really good. Plus, our guide who was also our photographer didn’t know how to take a great angle. But anyway, they said, “the best moments can never be captured”.

Our experience is worth this muscle pain I’m suffering right now. I can’t explain just how exactly I felt upon jumping on the 20ft waterfalls. I was like, “Gush, when will I land?” hahah

Though I did not jump on the 25ft and 30 ft falls, I am still proud of myself. It’s not easy to face my fear, they’re too big.
