Day 7. Let’s find a beautiful place to get lost
You know when you are hiking along a path and all of a sudden you start to squeak, squeal and squirm all simultaneously. That is called unexpected bundu bashing. One minute you are on a path and the next you are in a scene from ‘Jurassic Park’. Well bundu bashing (aka. off trail hiking) when that is your intension is actually quite fun. I’ve always had the desire to wonder through untouched areas- the ones that you can’t find on a well traveled path. Going off marked paths and into the unexplored areas can add an element of excitement to hiking. Going beyond what you know as you dislocate your limbs to squeeze through an obstacle course of branches makes you have a primitive experience, which is really fun because I am half human and half monkey.
