The Adventurer Chronicles 3

Day 3

sunny 25 °C

19/2
I was shocked to find myself sharing a dorm with a millionaire whom has already retired at the age of 30. He was really just living the life travelling the world and exploring new places and doing new things. I wondered when he will get bored, if ever.

Today, I will have to double back to Las Torres and head uphill towards my next checkpoint at Chileno. It wasn’t going to be a strenuous hike, or so I thought. What was planned to be a leisurely stroll back turned out to be a painful uphill hike with my backpack, through the blazing heat. I took a shortcut to Chileno that brought me through the hills and muddy soil. I should have known shortcut doesn’t always mean the easy way. At least I didn’t have to hike back the way I came and a new route would be more exciting.

The scorching heat made it difficult to hike for long periods of time and the route didn’t have as many streams to replenish my water supply. I found myself constantly stopping to take a break and felt weak as I didn’t have much to eat. After an arduous climb uphill, I finally arrived at Chileno, which was nestled between the mountains and the river. It was a very pretty site, with the massive river and lush forest surrounding the area. I barely could stand on my feet when I arrived and immediately asked for something to eat. That night I had the most satisfying dinner I had in those few days, a warm lamb chop with rice on the side. I really needed that meal.
