Just like any young man, I always tried to search for activities that would make me have real fun. So I hit the road of adventures and start looking for myself….
I always heard of camping, always seen it on TV, read about it, but never really done it. It seemed a good start. I started sniffing around to know what it takes to do some camping……I was given a whole list of equipments, tents, sleeping bags and a lot of others stuff….man, what if I get them and don't like it! What am I gonna do? Luckily, I have some smart friends, who suggested that we go for one night camping but we never sleep, we stay awake all night. By doing so, we need no tent nor sleeping bags! We collected some items, (tea cattle, some food, a radio) and went to a mountain near an area called Ashrafiet Al-Wadi…. We gathered woods, lots of it, set up the fire…….and stared at it for hours!
Next time, I decided to try hiking, since we have no wild animals, it would be fun! I went with my school friend Hosni, we joined a group of hikers, it was near Kassab. We headed with the group to a beach that is only accessed by going around a mountain on a very narrow road over a cliff!
We hiked for 2 hours before we reached the beach…hmmm, just like any other beach I had ever seen in my life, except, the other ones have some facilities! We got there; we found out that we didn’t bring our bathing suit or any drinking water! I carried a huge hiking backpack and believe me, I had all sort of crap and not one single useful thing! Come on...nobody told me that I won’t be needing my laptop nor my darts board! Duh!
Finally, I found myself…. I was aware that I’m not into outdoor activities, and found out that I really like foosball……it’s so exciting, competitive, challenging, fun, yet you never get sweated and can be played in a cold room with a cold drink! and I still managed to win…Hooray!
