Wilderness Weekend Warriors

Today’s Blog Chain repost is of an article from Brazen Backpacker written by Emily Pennington.
The article that caught my eye is Wilderness Weekend Warriors which is more than just a clever piece of alliteration! The opening paragraph captures the emotions of someone who has escaped from a week of “work” into the unknown …. “…… and supernaturally aware of your surroundings, you begin to sink into the unfamiliar. The journey is afoot.”
Although Emily’s passion is backpacking she writes this article mostly about WHY she does what she does, the feelings, the buzz of the experience both positive and negative that can make us stronger and better people. Reminds me a lot of many of my own experiences in the mountains of the UK, the Alps, and regular trips to the Himalaya.
So do visit Emily’s blog, take a trip into some extreme mindful travel adventures.

You inhale. The feeling of new air mixes with unknown space as you first place one foot and then the other onto the path ahead. A lightness tickles your stomach, curling upwards and into your heart. It tugs at the outermost threads of your mind and trembles, massaging the gray area that arises between excitement and edginess. At once delighted and supernaturally aware of your surroundings, you begin to sink into the unfamiliar. The journey is afoot.
