Pico de Loro monolith by lunuelsurriane

Photo of the Day: It’s the Climb

Imagine this: a cliff with a sheer drop of hundreds of feet and you’re holding on to a piece of rock near the edge. Fun? Yeah, we know. The thought alone makes our palms sweat like we’ve won a billion-peso lotto draw. This kind of nature adventure is not for the weak of heart (and, of course, weak muscles). Will we try it? You. . .bet. . .we. . .would. . .not! Well, in our minds, we won’t (are you out of your mind?), but it’s another story if we’d actually do it once we get there. We’ll probably do it. Traveling is partly about planning, more about seizing the moment. Just like this lovely lady, Lunuel Surriane Samonte (@lunuelsurriane, her instragram account in case you want to check other photos in her galllery), who, with her “to go to where I have never been” motto, shares the same spirit as Buzz Lightyear’s “to infinity and beyond!” and Charles Muntz’ “adventure is out there!” And, oh, by the way, we’ve featured photos of the Pico de Loro monolith and other peaks; photos showing the sweet success of reaching the peak. Lunuel’s featured photo, on the other hand, shows the sweet agony of getting there, an important aspect that must be celebrated. Travel, as we always say, is equally about the journey and the destination. Click the photo to enlarge:
