Outdoor leadership was a really amazing exploration among all of the exploration. It was an exploration that we going out to camp in the forest and I have a lot of fun.
On 26th of March, we went to Mondulkiri. We leave school at 8am and we have a long ride from our school to Mondulkiri. We arrived Mondulkiri at the evening.
Wow! That was me when I step out from the bus. You don’t know that feeling, if you are not in the situation. It’s really beautiful out here.
The weather here was just perfect! But let see what is the weather for the morning
___ Wednesday 27th
Wow! The weather was just killing me! It’s very cold out here!!
I can say that it freeze my whole body, from my head to my toes.

Trekking for hard and long way make my legs sore. I was so excited with all this nature, but this is was my favorite part. Our tour guide help us to the place where the elephant live and they help us cooked our lunch. You never know what will happen, but I helped them cooked! Yeah, I can say that this is one of my big accomplished for the trip because I’ve help them a lot with cooking.
After the food done, we ate all together at a big and long table. We all have fun together during lunch time. The food was amazing! Everything they use is all from nature, No Technology. I was amaze with their work because they were so creative. They are one of the indigenous people that are really friendly. I never think that indigenous people act this kind and I’m really appreciated them on their work.
After we finish everything, we trek back with safe and sound!
New environment always difficult for me. During this trip, I’ve a struggle time with my sleeping. It was hard to sleep in tent because it’s a small place. In wilderness is full of animals. I can say that it’s a place for animal to lives. One of my struggle is when many insects enter my tent without permission! Well, if they ask for the permission I would not let them in and they will just sneak in the same :(. During the night time, we turn on our light to keep it bright and that when the insects enter. We try to kept our tent close, but they can still sneak in without me knowing the reason.
Overall, this trip giving me a lot of experiences and lesson. What lesson that they trip giving me is when I need to take care of my tent, when I cooked food in the wild without technology, when to take care of myself during hot day and long trek and last but not least is when we enjoy together.
All of this can apply to my life. We never know what will happen on us in the future. What if we stuck in the forest and what will we do to save our life?
