Sometimes it only takes two very special girls to show us how brave and strong we can be as individuals.
Little Miss 9 and her friend climbed the rock near to our hostel and I couldn't have been more proud.
And then, if that were not enough they clambered up over 200 steps to climb the mountain near to us in search of some caves.
Yes they were hot. Yes they were tired. Yes they wanted to give up. But they didn't.
And found the caves they did. Well done girls.
They definitely earned their ice-cream that day.
All in all a good day and the girls came away with a bunch of eucalyptus leaves in preparation for some crafting days ahead.
And I did learn one thing from this little adventure. As much as the view is super amazing from the top of the hills, there is no way I would ever want to live there. I couldn't imagine climbing up that many stairs every day!
