We often get to see new places that sometimes they impress you a little more than expected but also some which are not what you were waiting for. And I personally confess that I've never been a fan of lakes.
The thing that I had to spend a few hours on the road, and then a few more hours hiking to reach a lake, which most of the time it used to be just a puddle with not too many beautiful landscapes, but only the sun when it was rising and then going down, making the lake look more beautiful than before..it was just not my thing. Not to mention that all the lakes have a deep and pretty scary story behind the name or the location where is placed.
I was always into mountains, peaks, waterfalls and even caves, the real wilderness of nature..until The Iezer Lake. And this one changed my perspective forever.
Who would believe that after spending 5 hours hiking and getting your soul already falling in love with the beautiful game of the weather together with nature would take your breath away? Well, I was already fascinated and completely disconnected from daily routines only by taking the route to this lake. And that made me get a new point of view about lakes. Especially when you get to see it on a random day and then in the next seconds you assist on the weather making it disappear together with you in the landscape. It's just a feeling that will never ever be described in enough words to make you truly understand the feeling.
And what about a lake that has the shape of your country? A natural glacial lake. It's pure fantastic. And imagine the sound of the wilderness with the eagles that can't be seen because of the foggy landscape but they are right there, because they let you hear them. Loud and clear.
I like to tell about myself that I'm always into a continuous evolution due to the things that I live, but most important - all the places that I get to visit and see.
Because when you travel, not only that you discover new places, but you also discover a new you. A you who acts differently depending on the things she gets to see and depending on the memories you create on there. Especially how you create them.
But then there are these places, where you literally don't need to do anything in order to create a special memory because you just get there and nature itself makes the rest of the mission.
And you wake up after a few minutes, hours, or even a day, standing in the same place, watching the same landscape, standing still, and dreaming away. Dreaming on future plans or just getting a little bit depressed that you will remember this place only from memories or pictures until the next visit. Missing it already..
But after I got to see The Iezer Lake something happened. Because I knew from the first second that the one who started climbing to the lake, won't be the same to the one who returns at the camping base. And I'll always be thankful to the nature for this change but also to the others that are going to make me evolve even more.
