    ... fully appreciating what hiking can be - a great way to consolidate friendships and enjoy experiences together.

    We stayed that night in a "hostel" that was unlike any hostel we've experienced so far, and much more like a real hotel, except that we shared a room with a 70-something year old American who smelled of old man.

    Having a few extra days on our hands between applying for jobs, we decided it was time to get out of town for a while and explore this wonderful country that we'll be staying in for the next year. And what better place to start exploring then a mountain.

    ... A LONG walk out up these terrible stairs, of course Tom thought it was no big deal and followed me out. I think one of us is in shape and the other definitely is NOT. LOVED the glowworms, you could see them on the roof and in some spots they were close enough you could see the threads they send down to capture insects for food.
