From the top of the mountains

I am writing from the top of the mountains. I wanted to end my sabbatical year the way I started it: walking.

So I left my on-going packing boxes activity and I took again my backpack. I put on my shoes and I went for 3 days through the Vercors highlands. This time, no villages around, I had to prepare my trek thoroughly. I am carrying my food for 3 days in my bag. I also have 2 detailed maps and above all I know exactly where the springs are. I know which one are still flowing and which one have already gone dry.

It is so beautiful up there! At 1600 m high, I am evolving between the sky and the earth, my horizon is blue, green and yellow and seems to open over infinity. Sometimes I hear the raptors crying above me in the sky, sometimes the buzzing of the flies only. The weather is nice and warm, fortunately a fresh breeze is blowing.

The first day, I feel the exhilaration of freedom, the happiness of the walker and gratitude for the beautiful year I just spent. I think again about all the new experiences I had, all the people I met, all the things I learnt, discovered and shared. I am thinking of my family and friends boundaries which became stronger. I think about all the people who hosted me and I have vertigo just thinking about the number of different places where I spent at least one night this year!

 

So? Are you following me? In the next few posts, I will share with you my trek, my pictures, my writing and my thoughts.
