So why did we decide to climb?
Well for one, it was cheaper. Back then, we were poor college students who could hardly afford three meals a day (we literally ate baguettes and gelato every chance we got, not that I’m complaining by any means.)
And secondly, it was a nice way to burn off some of those calories from all the carbs we were consuming on a daily basis. And let me tell you, despite our frugality, we managed to pack on the pounds throughout our trip.
And once we made it to the top, the views were to die for.
