5 Tips for Climbing a Mountain

Climbing Mt. Pulag was my first joiner experience. A joiner is when an individual or group organises a tour that a fixed number of people can join for a fee. The fee usually includes meals as well as the transportation expenses and the services of a travel guide. I don’t consider myself the sociable type but when a workmate, who is also a friend, invited me to join the trip with her friends, I decided to give it a try and I enjoyed the whole experience.

As a first timer, I did my best to prepare for the climb. The climb was scheduled for February, the time of Hanging Amihan, so I was trying to figure out how to survive in such cold weather. Here are some of the things I did to get ready for my first mountain climb.

A Short But Fun Road Trip to Atimonan, Quezon

We all want a vacation now and then to be able to relax and re-energize but sometimes, our busy lives just doesn’t allow for a luxurious getaway. Us girls also wanted to go on a vacation but our schedules never seem to match and we always had something to do on weekends. But we were all determined and constantly excited to discuss our plans for a weekend getaway.

Finally, we settled on just going on a road trip to a small resort in Atimonan, Quezon. It was a 6-hour ride, far enough from the city but still near enough not to exhaust us from the travel time. Picking a date to go was tricky at first, but I guess our determination and positive thinking paid off because a couple of days before the weekend, all our schedules synced. So, we met early morning, on a weekend, (despite some mishaps and a sleepless night of packing our bags) for our quick adventure. It was a very quick one indeed but it was all worth it as we came back with more than just fun memories of our trip.
