Strenuous to say the least

Its been a month since I am back from our travels and my knees and legs are only starting to feel better now. I received a copy of a travel magazine last week which indicated that the Hike my hubby and I did in the mountains was of a strenuous kind, and that "The chain ladders are not for the scared of heights, but can be avoided if necessary - There are two sets of parallel ladders, each with two sections (40m and 20m respectively). The gully is the other option, but we chose not to do it. I have put together a little photo clip of the hike for you to enjoy - it was a 7 to 8 hour hike of 13km zigzag climbing, which was a gradual climb of 450m. It was definitely one of the most difficult adventures that I have ever done, but I am glad to have done it. Will I try it again? NO! It left me with aching legs, bleeding and broken toe-nails, and the hamstrings that needed full time physio for a week. Kalimera to everyone - its happy Friday and I am about to go and have tea with a friend. Maybe a slice of pecan-nut pie will do just fine.

congratulations. i doubt my arms could support me enough to go up that chain ladder. i watched the video with mouth agape at how big and high it was, then blink and giggled when i saw "view piont." hee-hee. how did you end up with bleeding and broken toenails?
