Last Monday and Tuesday, I joined a camping trip planned by an Aussie.

It was a bush and coastal walk from Otford Station to Bundeena
through a royal national park, which was about 27km in total.
Seven people took part in it
(one Aussie, three Peruvians, one Laotian, and two Japanese).
We slept in a tent at a place near the beach at Matawalla
after we travelled 15km from the starting point.
From there we walked another 12 km to Bundeena,
and then took a ferry to Cronulla on the second day.

On the first day (the 27th), it was raining and cold in the morning.
Because of the weather, the path was muddy and slippery.
Sometimes we couldn't even find the track.
It was also foggy and we couldn't see the landscapes.
Everyone might have thought that today was the wrong day.

In the afternoon, it stopped raining,
but we kept walking on the hilly mountain path.
I can't remember how many mountains we crossed.

It was hard climbing up and down the mountains.
I felt the harsh ocean the rain brought.
I felt close to nature and the power of nature.

After a long walk, we finally found a place to sleep near the ocean.
We had 3 minute cup noodles after heating water on a portable stove.
Unfortunately, it was very windy so we couldn't make a campfire.
We set up tents and went to sleep around 9:30 since we were very tired. haha

Some people say they forget their fatigue from hard work
when they are able to see beautiful landscapes.
Yes, I felt like that, but my tiredness was still there. haha
The first day was very very different from my usual day.
To be continued...

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.
1. bouncer (on TV)
= a person employed to stand at the entrance to a club to a club, pub, etc. to stop people who are not wanted from going in, and to throw out people who are causing trouble inside
2. stats (on TV)
= statistics
3. hiss (on TV)
= to say sth in a quiet angry voice
