Lebanon, this name may bring anger and discouragement to some people, but for me, it brings pride and euphoria to my soul because of its wonderful nature biodiversity.
On the 22nd of November I decided with a bunch of friends to go camping in a cave in Hamat.
The camp site is located directly after the tunnel that leads you to Chekka aka ”Tunnel Chekka” on your left hand. The location can’t be reached by car but it doesn’t require a hike either, you will need 1 minute to arrive. The cave from the outside is breathtaking however there is nothing that special from the inside, but when rain hits you, believe me, you won’t care about the inside as much as you want to be safe and not be hit by a lightning!
Do I recommend this camping location? Sure! For the brave hearts only!
When we arrived to our camping spot the weather was great, clear blue sky, shiny sun, however we knew that a storm was coming so we took advantage of the weather to go on a small hike and discover the hidden gems there. (Not to forget to take some inspiring pictures too)
As the sun was setting the weather started to get chilly, we started a bonfire, sat around it, ate some yummy marshmallows and listened to country music.
Nothing can beat that feeling, the feeling of being free, of having nothing but a small camp fire and a tent and still feel like you own the world.
The only thing that was passing through my mind at that moment was this bible verse:
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?” -Matthew 6:25
Cheers to escaping the busy life we live everyday only to go and get lost in the woods so we can truly understand the meaning of our being.
