Nature’s way of teaching me gratitude

Hi beautiful friends,

Oh, what wonders did my eyes witness today!! The wonders that nature created on its own, and that no man should ever try and change it.

I started the day thinking we were gonna have nice walk, mostly thinking that we would fill this free time we have here. I finished it in owe for this extraordinary sights.

Meet “Plaiul Foii”, an area situated at the base of Piatra Craiului Massif, from the exit of Zărnești town, on a distance of 12 km.

Arriving there you will be welcomed by a Chalet, that keeps the name of the area: Plaiul Foii Chalet, which offers accomodation and a restaurant.

Its terrace, in which we spent an hour after the amazing walk, offers this magnificent and breathtaking view over the mountains. It is a great place to relax, eat a good soup and just soak in all the beauty of the place. The inside is beautifully designed, the food is nice and the atmosphere is relaxed, perfect for an afternoon or lunch. It wasn’t at all crowded today, at this time of day, so that was a huge bonus. Also, the sun was still shining strong, although a bit chillier than yesterday.

And the view.. the view is just spectacular.

Isn’t it amazing?

From the base of the mountain you can start off on different mountain routes, as signaled by the signs. Unfortunately, I did not take any picture at the site, but I found this online and I really hope it’s accurate.

We did not start off on any mountain route, as it was already 13.00 o’clock when we arrived and most of the routes were rather long, of about 6-8 hours.

But, once more, I promised myself, that qt least one time I will do it. I will hike, all equipped properly and my soul will tremble with joy. And who knows? Maybe I’ll fall in love with it and it will become a regular habit.

Although different in many ways, this walk reminded me of last July when visiting Milan we decided to take a one-day trip with Bernina Express to St. Moritz. It was such a unique experience back then.

And today, seeing that my own country has this amazing places, that are so close and come so in handy to visit, made me truly proud and grateful.

You only have to see the good in everything, to find joy and happiness, right?

I won’t say any much more. I strongly recommend you visit this amazing place. My feet are tired, but my heart is full.

“All good things are wild and free.”
