When I first started making plans of going back to Zakopane this year, no one actually took me seriously. Everyone thought this phase will go away & That I will eventually come to senses and think of how physically tiring it will be. But no. This phase is not gone, it will not be gone. For the first time in my life I actually feel like I WANT TO DO SOMETHING, I am anxious to do it, I am anxious to feel IT. For the first time in my life I am not worried about walking for 12 hours. I just want to see the peak and just focus on it, make it the only thing I see, the only thing that draws me forward. Then, finally, stand on top of the world. Get overwhelmed by sweet satisfaction. Then, the sweet walk of victory. Many people don’t make it through the very long trails and turn back somewhere along it. I wouldn’t be able to do that. If I make it my goal and I set the first step toward it, I have to continue.
When I actually finished the 6 day plan for our trip with my family, they were all surprised. This is one of the things I am motivated to do. I chose the very moderate, tiring, long but easy trails for us, because I know I am not ready for something more as a beginner, and my family isn’t either. This is preperation for something bigger.
Someday, maybe next year, I would like to hike up the highest peak of Poland, Rysy and the highest peak of Slovakia, The Gerlach Peak. I can take my sweet time.
Although, I did talk to some of my friends that are willing to hike up Rysy this year, so I might even go to Zakopane twice this upcoming summer!:)
Once I discover all of Tatras (Slovakia, Poland) more challenging beauty spots, I can move on to another country.
One of my dreams is definitely hiking in NZ and Peru.
Can I call this “my hobby” yet?:)

- austlaninwonderland powiedział(a): Zakopane is amazing! The hiking is tiring and once you reach the top you feel like you just conquered the world and it feels so good when you fall asleep that same night-best sleep of life :P ahaha *personal experience*
