I was never the explorer myself. I only get to travel when my family does. Primarily, because I am sheltered. Being the only daughter of a conservative family, I wasn’t able to experience my teenage years as freely as everyone. Yes, I can go out. But curfews and other boundaries are strictly being implemented at home. As such, you can just find me at home lying on my stomach on the big couch we have, or on my bed reading a book.
I brought such practice even after I move out. It’s not that I am lazy. I just cannot find the interest to go out and explore. I only do when I need to buy some stuff from the grocery. Even that I manage to let others do for me most of the time. I am not exactly an introvert. In fact, I can be outgoing sometimes. I just cannot find the right attitude to do this constantly.
Anyway, I went to Grand Canyon last weekend. It was my first time to travel alone. But I was itching to go somewhere and it is the nearest good thing from my place. And guess what? I was instantly starstruck-ed by the place. People may think that it was just miles and miles of brown and sand. But if you’ll take time to check thoroughly, you’ll see that there’s more than meets the eye.
The rock formations are simply outstanding. They give so much character to the place. I didn’t climb but I wanted to. Since I was not prepared, I’ll leave that to ‘next time’. Nevertheless, the more I looked, the more I fell in love with the place. I even took photos of the magnificent structures I found.
Have you been there? I’d love to hear about what you think. Let’s share pictures and maybe you can advise me on how to proceed for my next trip there!
