… not always like it. I found this well written account of Jamie about his trekking experience of the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal. He says-
When most trekkers get to Jomsom, our nominee’s starting point, they’ve already been trekking for two weeks and they’ve just crossed the 17,000 feet+ Thorung La. They normally complete the Jomsom stage in about 4 days. Our bloke took a week.
His legs simply don’t work any more.
Bits of him ache that he previously didn’t even know existed.
Even I have wondered on so many treks that why do all my vacations involve walking from morning to evening and then trying to relax so that I can walk some more the next day. But then I think trekking defies logic! After every trek, I look ahead for trekking some more.
PS. I saw the reference to Jamie’s post first at Indiamike on a thread discussing how to get your significant other let you trek!
PPS. Cross posted at Blogharti too.
