“Have you tried downhill motorbike riding?”
December 7, 2017 10:55am CST
When I was still working in the local government agency in 2014, I had traveled to far-flung areas, literally said. I had worked as a Community Facilitator in the Tinglayan, Kalinga, Philippines. The main aim is to help the local tribes to implement their community projects. In this area, it is expected that I should live a modest lifestyle. One thing for sure that I can’t dismiss in my mind is to travel with a biker in his motorbike to the mountains. The travel was fun and enjoyed seeing the beautiful scenery along the narrow roads. The most dangerous thing that I had experienced is to ride a motorbike downhill to the base of the mountain. ‘Why I said it dangerous?’ The local bikers usually turn off the motor’s engine and drive downhill like riding a roller coaster. It sounds fun but I think it is not desirable to travel without any safety measures. ‘What if I got injured with this kind of undesirable practice?’ After almost one year, I filed my resignation and tried to stay away from this kind of job. I wanted to stay alive and enjoy living without endangering my life. Did you ever experience traveling like this? Are you willing to work in the community with danger at stake?

I have never done that. By the way you are explaining it and seeing in the picture I would rather watch others. I would probably fall off and never be seen again. I will pass on that. I cannot even ride a bike anymore without feeling I will fall off of it. The scenery is nice though.
It was a nice work experience. But I can't deal with the nature of the job. It was a big challenge for me and I always thought that I can be flexible whatever the risk may come. However, it is a good decision to consider loving myself first than anything else.
