Lakwatsero Notes: The First Time Hiker

The feeling of doing things you long wished for for the first time, that's priceless! It will only happen once, so cherish every moment.

It was December 28, 2011 when I first tried hiking a mountain. It was in Mt. Daguldol, San Juan, Batangas. I can still remember the excitement as we boarded the bus bound for Batangas. I can still feel the joy as we arrived and registered at the jump-off point of Brgy. Hugom. All the pain and sweat that my body had gone through as we went along the trail, I can still feel it. And the very moment I set foot at the summit of my first mountain, it's one of my most treasured moment, forever in my heart.   

Surely I am forever grateful to the people who got me into hiking. Because of that first hike, a lot of doors opened for new learning, experiences, and opportunities. I met plenty of people, some just went by, a handful made huge impact, and there's one that totally changed me.

It was about 8 years ago, but everything seemed so fresh, as if it was just yesterday. I will forever treasure that moment!
