The World Unseen

Whenever I go elsewhere - climb mountains, trek to see the hidden lake, walk far to the nearest MTR, pass through boats like they're bridges, climb the make-shift stairs, it reminds me to travel all I can while I'm still young.

The steps are steep, the platforms are wobbly, the roads are not paved, these things add to the experience, to the adventure. Yet when you're experiencing pain in your knees, at loss for breath (not from wonder but from poor cardio), it's not fun. I'd get that sooner or later.

Travelling is my way of postponing adulthood. It may seem selfish but the world has been really beautiful and all I have to do is see it and marvel in its beauty.
