During the expedition week in October, I faced a wide variety of challenges in an unfamiliar environment in Minkami, Gunma. This trip has undoubtedly expanded my comfort zone, as I experienced a range of activities, including canyoning, rafting, rock-climbing, geo-caching, mountain biking, as well as multiple team building activities. In this expedition, I got out of my comfort zone when I performed mountain biking, rock climbing, and canyoning.
Mountain biking got me out of my comfort zone, as I rode a bike with a different braking system as well as a different type of suspension system. In addition, I rode on steep courses in the mountains, as well as extreme hairpins, which was a new experience for me. Even though I had lots of fun and was able to manage the courses, the experience was challenging and indefinitely got me out of my comfort zone.
