Be careful what you wish for, they say, and boy are they right!
I was thinking that all I want for Christmas and the new year is to be able to spend time with my husband. Except...
that seems to include hiking!
How bad can it be...right? I mean, I love walking, and I love the outdoors. So we got hiking gear for Christmas. Korea is full of mountains. Big, beautiful mountains. And little teeny, tiny, old, bent-nearly-in-half Korean people climb the mountain every day for fun and exercise. If they
can do it, surely I can!
So, we get all dressed up in our hiking clothes and head out. It's a beautiful walk (about one mile) to the trail that leads to the mountain. I'm all toasty and warm in my new clothes. No problem.Then
we get to the trail leading up the mountain. This is where I stop walking. J turns around and says, "yes?" I look at him and say, "that's right; mountains go UP, don't they?!"
I hate UP. And so do my thighs. They didn't like their Christmas present at all. But...we did it. We made it. Well, maybe we didn't go all
the way to the top, but we definitely climbed, and I've got the pictures to prove it!!
