    I spent over a month living in Taiwan and there was no way I wasn't climbing the highest mountain in the country. It wasn't hard, but I did it in one day and had absolutely no regrets. The views were insane!

    Ah, your video makes me want to go back to mountains sooo bad! And seeing you doing some basic mountaineering I would really recommend you to attend some introductory courses of mountaineering, where you would learn important things about safety in mountains and in general all of the information about how to properly plan your trips, pack your bag, dress and etc. to make the experience more pleasurable. Then the trips would become half less exhausting, of course you can't really see the details of your hikes in the videos, but yeah I believe that mountains are something extraordinary and liberating and you should definitely try to reach higher places. But to do that we need to respect ourselves and the mountain so learning and preparation are super important. Climbing on snow is a whole other different experience that I would definitely recommend you to try and challenge yourself if you feel like you're attracted to more technical mountaineering and climbing!
    Best wishes from a very flat Lithuania :)
