On second day of our journey to the top of Kyushu we made it to the summit at exactly noon. Followed by a quick descent we made the 10 km back to the parking lot on the same day.
What should have been a three day trip, turned out to be only two days of trekking. Here is the first day as a video. Enjoy!
Tired, I pound the stairs to the attic, fight through a forest of toys and old clothes until I stand in front of a huge white wardrobe. The door opens with a loud squeaking that shakes me to the core. Barely opened, I am greeted by a scent of seawater and campfire. Slowly my eyes sink to the contents of the wardrobe; Backpacks, mattresses, sleeping bags, stoves and our sporks. Suddenly, my fatigue is blown away, excitement and anticipation are spreading and the desire for an adventure grows inside of me.
