I and my husband have been more involved in personal activities ever since we got married. There was never a weekend that passed us by wherein we would eventually find ourselves lying around the house just being lazy, even after a long week full of pressures and anxieties mainly caused by work and business. We have agreed that, in order for us to keep ourselves relaxed and focused on what really mattered the most, which was family living, we needed some time off to enjoy each other’s company. However, both of us being the active bodies that we are found a common interest which were the outdoors. We both like taking long trips and short treks within areas within the countryside and these we did with much enthusiasm.
My husband really likes the idea of being able to bond longer within an environment that is just plainly conducive for such. It has actually proven to be effective given the circumstance that we rarely see each other for the most part of the weekdays. In this way, every single moment spent with each other meant a lot. We would normally get everything set the night before the trip, which would include our gear and other things. We always made sure that it would be as comfortable as we would want it to be, so planning ahead was always the key point. There is always that list of reminders that we maintain and of which we are guided by. Of course there are such essentials as foodstuff, clothing, beddings, emergency medical kits, communication gadgets and for each of us, a pair of reliable outdoor mbt shoes.
