Spain Photo Diary: Mountain Climbing

IMG_1421

Hello my lovely readers! You know I’m getting caught up with sharing my photographs when I am only 3 weeks behind, and no longer one full month! So, about three weeks ago I climbed the Morro de Toix Mountain mountain in Calpe, Spain. I stayed in Calpe from August 1-14th with my German summer camp, and they were honestly the best two weeks of my life. And out of those two weeks, my favorite moments were watching the sun rise from the mountain (I got up at 4:30 AM!) and then reaching the summit about 1 1/2 hours later. Watching the sunrise and seeing the view from the top gave me some amazing, indescribable feelings. Sitting on the mountain, I thought, “These are the moments people live for.” And since coming down that mountain, I have not been the same. Working hard to see such a beautiful view has inspired me to go on more adventures, and see many more places. And I’m so thankful to be working as an Au Pair this year, because this job will give me the chance to do just that.

I hope that these photographs convey at least some of the empowering emotions I felt on the mountain that morning. I highly recommend making your way up if you are ever in Calpe. Start early to catch the sunrise from the midway lookout, and then head all the way up before it gets too hot. The whole hike took about 2 hours going up, slightly little less going down. It’s a tough one (at some points literally rock climbing, and holding on to ropes over steep cliffs) but completely worth it. Enjoy!
