Last week, I shared 13 pictures of my school’s Action Trip at Legok Kondang, Ciwidey, Bandung. I promised that I will share another 13 this week and here are those 13 pictures along with a bit of information on each picture.
We woke up early in the morning because we had to start our little hike early. While the kids were getting ready, the owner of the lodge called out to one of my students who loved photography. He told her that there was a spot where you can see the golden sunrise. We all went there immediately.
I have to say that these pictures are something that I can say as Sunrise Without an Effort. I had plenty of beautiful sunrise pictures but those pictures were taken after a long hike and often after a long midnight walk as all those pictures were taken on the top of certain mountains. Here in Legok Kondang, all I did was walking for 2 minutes from my tent and voila…the stunning sunrise view was there.
After the beautiful golden sunrise session was over. We gathered the students. We brief them a little and warned them how they need to stay on the trek and not playing around. There were more easy trek than the dangerous ones (even the dangerous ones weren’t that dangerous) but we were dealing with teenagers from grade 6 to 11. The ones we worried the most were grade 6 as some of them tend to play a lot.
We began with a steep climb. Some teachers were out of breath and asked how far it went. I think it was about 15 to 30 minutes and then they were no more steep climb, I told them. There were still some light climbs but I couldn’t help laughing when one of them joked by saying “From now on we shouldn’t trust Novi’s words“
When I went hiking, I usually walked faster than most of the other female hikers. That time, I had to control my speed so that I didn’t pass the boys and left the girls behind. It was so hard to walk much slower than I used to…but I managed.
Those are the 13 pictures I took on the third day of our action trip.
I know I should only share 13 pics to match the rules in Thursday Thirteen … but I will add one more with an excuse that this isn’t my picture, this was taken by my students. I love this pic as it had story of togetherness behind this pic. I love hanging out with students.
