We were going to go and do Dragon’s Back today, a popular hiking trail trail here that is supposedly one of the easier ones to do. I will be the judge of that and tell you what I think hahaha From someone who actually doesn’t like to hike and will whinge when there is even the slightest incline, you will get my honest opinion! 😜 I might have mentioned this before, but I only do hikes for the destination. If someone can winch me all the way up to the top, then I’ll take that option every time! 😂
We started doing the hike, and I was already ready to whinge. It was hot and humid, and there were a ton of people on the trail. Well, it is a public holiday, after all, so I already expected this. But still, it’s a different matter when you actually see it and experience it 😒
We then got to a fork in the road: we either do the trail or do the easier (and shorter!) walk to Big Wave Bay beach, and then just chillax on the beach for the rest of the afternoon. We did the latter 😂 It was really nice 😊 Although the beach didn’t quite live up to its name: it was flat and calm as. Not sure how surfers can surf here… Maybe the waves only come at certain times of the year?? 🤷♀️
We got home at around 5pm and decided to pick up some dinner on our way back. We walked past this shop that apparently sells yum cha items for takeaway! O.M.G. This just blew my mind. I can order my favourite items here whenever I want! And because it’s takeaway, it’s sooo cheap. My favourite yum cha dish is like less than A$4 for 3 pieces 😱 We’d normally pay at least double that if we go to an actual restaurant. I’m so happy we decided to stop by and check out this place!
And by around 8pm, we were both exhausted and ready to go to bed 🤪 We were thinking of doing the proper trail tomorrow, but given how tired we are right now, I’m not sure if this is a good idea…!
