During the week of expedition week the experiences at that week were great!
I will mention about the few great moments during the week. First of all in for most the hike and the camp between the 2nd day we came to the camp and the 4 day we got back from the hike. During those few moments I was able to become more independent and learn how to take care of other people such when people needed help.
The experiences taught me to help more independent and when we had to make our own tent that helped me to become more independent. Which gave me important life skills. Finally I also wanted to talk about how this can connect to the life skills that I already know. 1st of all When we went hiking I knew it from the last year trip when we hiking. Where in groups we went to hiking for few hours which taught us how to collaborate and get to 1 place to another. However in nigata we had to go without any navigator or help.
When I was in middle of the hiking for at least everyday we had 5 hours of hiking. I felt extremely stressful for the 1st day of the hike since I wasn’t all use to at all and felt like I was going fall. But over time after few days after I got used to the environment that i’m in. I felt much conformable and felt like I can enjoy the hike more. I also learned many things such as making my own dinner and lunch and not always rely on our parents. Which was very interesting.
The risk I took during the trip was when I was going down hill when we finished hiking and the last day since there would a lot of steep hill where we could get really hurt and injured. That made us felt little nervous but when were at the end and going down to that hill I felt much more relief than when I first started.
The expedition week was a big meaning to me and definitaly had metaphoric definition to my trip. That is becoming a independent animal after a birth. This taught me how to do many things like becoming indepdent and self aware.
