Was in Zurich last week. It is summer time and the weather was so nice for outdoor activities. So Mr. A suggested to go hiking. So we did.
The place we were staying was not near the city, so we took a tram to Zurich Hauptbahnhof and switch to train S10 to Uetilberg. The train ride took us about 30 minutes to reach. We didn’t know there was 2 different trains which for S10, one only serves until Triemli while the other one goes all the way to Uetliberg. So we got down at Triemli and boarded another train to go all the way up to Uetliberg, which wasn’t bad at all, because we got a new learn, and take some photos (will add on more photos after transfer those photos from camera).
As soon as we reached Uetliberg station, we saw a children playground on the right and a staircase that leads to the hiking trail on the left. The trail is definitely beginner (and child) friendly and we reached the top of the hill effortlessly. We could see one side of city view and another side of forest view. It’s like the best of both worlds, simply breathtaking.
Oh ya, there was a small tower that you could go up for a even better view, which we did not go up because you will need to pay CHF2 per person to go pass that revolving door and we did not have coins. So we took photo of the tower itself instead. 😀
And this Monday, we went Broga Hills, Semenyih, Malaysia. It was my second time there but it was the first for Mr. A. I don’t know why we (or just me) like suddenly so into hiking recently? I actually consider this as my first hiking experience together because it is another level of difficulty compare to Uetilberg. We were quite excited the night before and we wanted to go before sunrise (Google said sunrise was 7.04am).
Unfortunately, we did not have the proper gear like headlights for crack of dawn hiking, hence we started hiking only after sunrise. It took us less than an hour to reach the top (I didn’t reach the top at the first time) and the sky seemed like it was going to rain so we decided to call it a day. True enough, it started raining as we were going down and we had to find cover under a tree before we could continue, with many other hikers. The rain stopped approximately 20 minutes later and it just added the difficulty by a little, which wasn’t that bad. Hehehe.
I am liking hiking more and more, as I feel like there are so much more we could learn from it. My favorite learn from this learn is take small steps, and be determined, you will eventually reach your destination.
