I bet you're wondering how I found myself loaded up like a mule, running around on Alpine mountain paths?
It's very simple: I was asked to go bivouacking (something I'd never heard of) and because any new experience can be valuable, I set off to find out.
But what is a bivouac? It's a temporary, outdoor camp. Bivouacking involves setting up camp in the evening and then taking it down the next day (at sunrise.)
The most difficult thing was taking the bare minimum without forgetting the essentials. I didn't know anything about it and wasn't equipped so my first instinct was to ask around for basic equipment like a tent, mattress, sleeping bag and backpack. Then I had to think about the essentials: toothbrush, weather-appropriate clothing, an external battery pack so I wouldn't miss a shot, and something to eat and drink.
