A three-day trek in the mountains of Chiang Mai, Thailand? Loved it. A rugged and intense workout, it made me feel like I really earned those landscape gems of perfect waterfalls, manicured paddy fields and quaint mountain villages.
By now, a porcelain bowl in the ground and a bucket of water to flush isn’t so shocking to me. My odds of hitting my shoe when I squirt are 80 out of 100. Yay! I’m getting pretty professional.
A village home stay with an outhouse isn’t horrible in the light of day. But at night with no light? That’s a different story…
Did I mention, this outhouse doubles as the shower too? I spent my first night squatting in the dark and taking a cold water bath by the light of my perched flashlight.
Rugged adventures! I love them, but feel like I should earn Girl Scout badges for them.
