Sometime last week as I was procrastinating studying for my exams, I thought up the idea to travel to the Blue Mountains and go "bushwalking". My boyfriend seemed up for the idea, so we packed up a picnic, layered up in the warmest clothes we could and set way for the Blue Mountains.
- it recommended 10 minutes walking either way
- we didn't want to walk down and then back up a thousand stairs

We very quickly learned that no, it was no something easy and the name 'The Giant Staircase' if anything was a severe underestimate of what we decided to attempt. We walked down the steepest stairs we had ever seen and it was never-ending. Neither of us wanted to give up so we soldiered on, not wanting to do anything 'half-assed'. We got to the bottom of the trail after about half an hour of climbing down stairs and we were exhausted. The worst part about this was that we still had to walk back up.

The drive was quiet as the weather turned horrible and my boyfriend fell asleep so I had to drive in silence- something I hate.
We were home, we survived the exercise and we had a wonderful adventure. Showers, food and sleep were all we wanted once we got home. It was nice to do something different and I'm looking forward to thinking up new ideas of adventures my boyfriend and I can go on together.
Thanks for reading!
