My legs were aching, and the heat was certainly not helping. I was hungry and my feet hurt like crazy. I was ready to hit the sack and sleep, but at the same time I was full of energy. We were heading towards the World’s End - a cliff with a 4000 meter drop. But in order to reach our destination, we were required to walk 10 km.
Until now I thought the border was going to have a fence with a guard, but there is no line or fence where we are. We have to cross a desert and then a river. I am having mixed emotions about this, mostly because it’s a place i’ve never been to before and now I know we are crossing illegally. I am holding Elena’s hand and carrying Mari while Mami looks for something to eat and Papi went with Andres to find a bush to use for the toilet. It’s our turn to cross the river.
Which is why I love the desert. The scorching heat on your skin from the sun, dry lips and the cold icy water hitting it going down your throat, hydrating yourself. The prickly bushes and trees hurt as you walk into it somehow, the dry dirt that is rough on your skin when you fall and hurt yourself leaving a multiple scratches with dirt in it. My hometown has so many
If I’d only knew that in half an hour I would be traveling what felt like 30 mph down one of the steepest parts of a mountain with adrenaline rushing throughout my body, I would have enjoyed the walk up a bit more. We had been walking up the side of the mountain for 15 minutes now. My friends and I were beginning to feel tired and had started to pant. I was from Florida were the land was primarily flat so I was not accustomed to hiking up a mountain. One of my councilors Jesse who had a medium sized brown beard and brown hair, told me as we walked up the worn down path, that once we reached the top we would stop and rest.
We knew no one had decided to ascend the mountain yet, so they had to be around here somewhere. I 'd figured after a while they 'd possibly went back down to Base Camp for more supplies or to contact
They looked almost the same age but there was one who seemed slightly older than the rest. They were stunned when they saw me. What was a person like me doing in an underground cavern? "I told you that you needed to fix the ceiling!" shouted the first witch.
We were headed to Minnesota. My mom, my brother and I. We were meeting the rest of my family to begin our so called expedition. Once we go to Minnesota is when the story truly begins. In Minnesota there’s lot to do, lots to see and lots to eat.
Since the possibility being transferred to a destination without people has been considered, sleeping bag and preserved food has been stuffed into my backpack. I decided to search for someone while wandering for a while and begun walking in a suitable direction. —————- On the 3rd night of coming to Andalugia, I was roaming about in a forest. Far from finding people, I could not even discover a highway. Without a concrete aim, because I kept wandering this way and that way, it might be justified to say that it’s natural.
We decided to head out to Ski Dubai over the weekend when we planned to visit my uncle. After visiting my uncle the entire family headed over to Mall of the Emirates for an outing. But only my cousin and I decided to go skiing since no one else was up to it. Whenever I skied without my instructor I would go half way up the hill not all the way to the top. The only time I had ever been all the way up was on my final lesson and I never really felt the need to go all the way up.
I decided that I was going to run cross country in the fall, something I never even considered before. The first week of practise, I anticipated dreading going on the long runs and suffering through difficult workouts. Instead, what found was the most supportive group of people in my school and even more surprising I discovered my love of running. Now in my senior year of high school, I have become a dedicated runner who finds enjoyment in the pain of pushing yourself to the limit. Cross Country has taught me many lessons such as the importance of commitment and determination, however the lesson that stands out is the importance of being open to new opportunities and overcoming obstacles.
