“I can't believe I'm climbing volcano for 2nd time too..... still remember during the climb at Mt. Semeru.. I swear to myself no more mt. volcano....... Rinjani.... please don't give me tough time “ this is the exact phrase Soi Fung aka Tang commented .
I still remember the Mt Semeru trip . I cannot believe the journey ended at the peak as I almost wanted to give up , 500 m before the peak .Yes you heard it correctly, it's 500 m before the peak. How did I survive walking 1 step at a time to reach the peak ? In total we walk around 20 hours not including the break at the camp site , our breakfast , dinner and lunch. Most of us ended up with blister on our feet or swollen feet.
We swear never to hike any mt volcano in our entire life. But why are we back again ? We like to suffer ? To test our endurance ? Or because we are addicted to the endorphine hormone release into our system ?
OMG ...I really cannot believe I signed up again.
