MY FIRST HIKING EXPERIENCE IN ABUJA

Hey lovelies!

Guess who had her first Hiking experience? You guessed right! lol Me. It was a beautiful Saturday morning, I was up by 5:30 am, I slept excited and woke up even more excited.

I met up with a group of amazing humans called Christ’s Creatives, a friend told me about them and asked if I’d be interested, I’ve always wanted to be a part of something like this and I thought why not ? Since we’re all for making Jesus famous. I’m positive you will hear more about this group on this blog.

The mountain we climbed was at Wuye, and getting there proved to be a bit difficult for me because I had never been there, so I had to make a series of calls until I found my way . I was a bit nervous at first because I hadn’t met any of the group members. First thing I noticed was that I was the only female wearing make up ๐Ÿ˜‚, please don’t ask me any questions, thank you.

We prayed, and the climbing began…

In no time, I was already gasping for air like a fish out of water. At certain points we stopped to take pictures and catch our breath. We finally reached the top of the mountain and the view was so breath taking (literally). I could see various landmarks in Abuja like the National Stadium, the welcome to Abuja monument, cars moving like a pack of cards, it was So beautiful.

I think the part I loved the most was where we fellowshipped. We sang and talked about God extensively, there was a Muslim boy in our midst, he met us at the foot of the bridge and climbed with us. He also spoke based on his own understanding, I believe some seeds have been sown in his heart, hopefully one day he’ll come to the true knowledge of who the real God.

Don’t laugh at me but I was actually scared of coming down the hill than climbing up ๐Ÿ˜ญ. I actually slipped and I almost fell, thank God someone was holding my hand.

We took more pictures on our way down and on the train tracks, it was hilarious because we kept on making jokes about the train coming. I legit met people who love pictures as much as I do, yes these people are here to stay ๐Ÿ’“.

Would I go hiking again? Yes! Maybe this time I’ll climb a tougher mountain. Have you gone hiking before?

    Haha. How did you feel when you realised that you were the only one on make up?
    I have gone hiking a couple of times before and it is always refreshing being in the midst of nature. Away from the hustle and bustle of the concrete city.

    I have only climbed the Idanre hills once and I couldn’t get to the top because it was so slippery that day. I really look forward to hiking more and it seems we have more of that in Abuja. So sad I missed this.

    Great photos!

    Iโ€™m pleased you enjoyed your hike. I remember my first time โ€“ I was shattered and all sweaty.. perhaps if Iโ€™d wore makeup Iโ€™d have felt as glamorous as you look ๐Ÿ˜

    I made a rookie mistake a few times when setting out for walks.. a little tip Iโ€™ll share with you โ€“ avoid denim. When the denim gets wet, itโ€™s just awful to hike in.

    I look forward to reading about your next escapade ๐Ÿ‘
