The Tatra Mountains; my first adventure!

In 2006 I got the chance to go on my first adventure! I was working towards my Duke of Edinburgh award so a group of my other school mates and I signed up to climb Mt. Rysy in Tatra Mountains in Poland. Poland is a beautiful country and although we spent most of our time hiking and rock climbing we managed to still have enough energy to go out into the mountain towns.

I’m afraid I wasn’t able to capture any photos whilst on top of the mountain because I was too busy dealing with the difficult terrain. Looking back at my 16 year old self I don’t think I realised how lucky and great of an achievement it was to attempt this climb, but I do remember having an amazing time. I do believe that this was the start of my adventurous spirit!
