I’ll be the first one to raise my eyebrows at somebody who has visited somewhere one time and throws around words like “perfect.” But you guys. I’m pretty convinced I spent the perfect day in the Arenal Volcano area in Costa Rica.
Philadelphians often speak of the Delaware River. It's a Philadelphia border, of course they know what it is! But adventures? I am not talking about tall ships or rubber ducks here, Philadelphia. Do you know how long the Delaware River actually is? Wikipedia tells me it is 301 miles long. That’s a lot of miles left unexplored if you only stick to Philadelphia’s portion of the Delaware. I don't blame you, I didn't really start getting out there until last week. But I do have two activities for you to try if you want to branch out river puns!
In the nature of finally getting out there and doing what makes me happy, I've got a hike for you as well as a bike. How exciting, no?
All winter, I was hemming and hawing and whining and crying about how I just wanted to go on an outdoor adventure. And how “Philadelphia sucks. There’s nowhere to go around here.” But I’ve been trying regardless, and while I STILL have yet to talk about bikepacking…I have been trying a couple of day hikes that leave me feeling pretty good.
So I've figured out that I love the outdoors. Maybe you have too! I've taken the leap to learn as much as I possibly can about all outdoor activities (although, if you read further, I just broke one of my rules). That's how this blog was born! Maybe you've decided this is something that tickles your fancy too. Here's what you don't do: look at blogs/Instagram/Twitter endlessly and wish you were as great as these people and whoa I will never be able to do that and I don't have any of that gear so why am I even attempting this what if I hate camping after all and why can't I breathe anymore?
Writing this run-on sentence killed a little part of me, but was necessary to make a point.
