We went for our first hike since the operation this week. Hiking on crutches or "bushwalking" as it's known here really is as difficult as it sounds and far more of an extreme sport than hiking is meant to be!
It was great to be out in the woods again doing what we love. I had to be a LOT more careful about what was on the trail, including vines, slippery patches of leaves, the edge of the trail drop-off, tree roots and small lizards. All in all, the trails are well maintained here so we had a nice little walk to a lookout and back again.
We had a great time checking out the scenery and going for coffee afterwards but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone else who can only count to fifteen if you're still on crutches.
