Here in Western Australia, the COVID pandemic seems more or less under control. Sounds of noisy cars and loud motorcycles are back: non-essential travel is permitted once again! As the city hassles and bustles around its common activities, I observe this change and think deeply, especially on Saturday mornings, when I take time to myself to walk around the waking city, ending my walk with a hot latte.
I began to miss my walks in the bush, as I used to go regularly in Melbourne. With time on my side for another few months, I thought is a good time to try something new.
A friend offered to take me to join this walking club, that she has been a member of for quite some time. I signed up for one of the more challenging walks, 12 km at the Darling Scarp walk trail (if that tells you anything!). It really was a trek that is not an obvious one – or at least so it felt when I am not in charge of the route.
A little about the club
According to their website (http://www.wwc.iinet.net.au) the club has around 150 members and I can say is a good place to meet very interesting people! So if you are anything like me, recovering from isolation and feeling overwhelmed at the returning to normal life process, plan to make new experiences and visit the forest!
Anyone is welcome to join; the first two walks are free. After that, there is a small fee, but considering the effort, the organizers put to keep everyone safe and the routes interesting – it is well worth joining.
This walk may seem a bit off from my usual solo adventurous travel experiences… but I can say in these times it is hard to meet new people. It is also good to try new things, that was my intention.
Wishing everyone a very nice weekend! You can expect more frequent communication from me in August. If you enjoy watching my videos and reading my blogs do subscribe, like and comment – that way I know you’re with me. 🙂
Looking forward to hearing from you! 🙂
