I've lived in Australia now for 3 months and so far have not done much by way of exploring the world around me.
I made up for that yesterday. A nice 4.8 mile trek around the lake near my work. There was marshlands, forest, bush and wildlife in abundance. It was very nice and refreshing to get out of the city (or at least feel like I was out of the city) and explore all of nature's wonderful gifts.
Will I do it again?
It was quite brutal and I thought I was going to absolutely die of dehydration (got quite hot and I didn't take a water bottle) so I would definitely reconsider undertaking that particular route at lunch time again. Especially as I was 20 minutes slower than I thought I would be! I would consider it for a weekend adventure as there are still so many other trails to explore in the park.
Hurray for fitness!
