Away from City Life Part 1

Finding peace away from the hustle and bustle of city life. 
These pictures were taken at Macritchie Reservoir during my first ever 12-15km trek. Surprisingly enough, i wasn't as out of shape as i thought seeing that i was still the hyper energizer bunny after the whole trek. Tsk. ADHD kid...

The weather was perfect.
The view was breathtaking and photo-worthy. 
The company was an absolute delight.
One of my fondest memories to date 
 Loved every single moment spent in the tranquility of the forests and the captivating waters.

The scenery was absolutely gorgeous on our way up to the tree top walk and i dont think that i captured the full beauty of nature with camera albeit i am still an amateur photographer and my photo skills are not drools worthy yet. But the photos really dont do justice. You'll just have to see it with your own eyes and basked in the environment to truly experience what im talking about.
It was my healthy activity for that week and i enjoyed it.

Thats all for part 1! Will update on part 2 soon
