Failing was not an option this time.
The catering was extraordinary.
The weather played along.
The route was slightly less challenging.
And most importantly, I was not alone.
We had planned the trip for a friday, but changed that plan due to the recent heatwave.
On Tuesday at 6 pm we spontaneously decided to start that very evening. It was so freakin' hot that I wouldn't have been able to sleep inside anyways. Unfortunately, we thus missed the sunset.
It got darker really fast, and darkness can be scary on a hill.
Even tiny tea lights can work wonders for your courage.
Reading and sleeping.
Exposure time: 15s. It's pretty dark outside at night.
The next morning. Room with a view...
My new sleeping pad is pretty comfy.
Everybody's still sleeping.
The temperature was rising again. No sleeping bag required.
Childhood was fun!
A nearby memorial. You got to be thankful that we grow up in peace if you read all those names.
Breakfast. Sleeping outside is awesome. And scary. And awesome.
Update: This entry just won a prize. Yay!
