I’m not one for spontaneous adventures. As much as I do enjoy them, I’m someone who has to always have everything planned and scheduled out.
My friends decided they wanted to go on a spontaneous road trip to Elora. I was not for it at all, seeing as they wanted to go the next day or the day after. I was staying at my parents’ house for the weekend and I didn’t even have any of my things with me.
Eventually they convinced me to go, and we took the hour-and-a-half drive yesterday to the Elora Gorge. We arrived around 9:30 A.M. and to our relief, it was pretty empty. We went tubing and it wasn’t so bad considering the fact that I can’t swim. The view floating down the gorge was pretty astonishing and it was certainly something I’d never seen before. I didn’t take my phone with me because I didn’t want to get it wet, but pictures wouldn’t have done it justice anyways.
We went hiking on the trail after and it was definitely my favourite part of the day.

We ended up leaving around 5:30. It took longer to get home than it did to get there because the main road was closed and we had to take detours. Despite the sunburns, the mosquito bites, and the allergic reaction, I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Being back in Toronto means facing all the stresses and things I don’t want to face right now. I wish I could escape reality and be there again.
