I'm on vacation from my studies now and that means that I have a lot of free time. Most of my vacation days are spent relaxing, reading, catching up on some TV series and meeting friends. But yesterday night was spent quite differently. I went on a huge hike in the biggest forest of my country. The hike was very very exhaustive: we hiked our way through the forest full of snow for about five hours 'till it was already nightime and then we had to sleep in a very very cold forest house but there were too many of us and some (including me) didn't fit in the house and had to sleep outside. It was freeeeeeeezing. We slept for about 5 hours. And after that we still had to make our way through the forest again to our train stop. That was hard work, guys. Nevertheless I couldn't stop smiling the whole time. The air was so fresh and frosty - the feeling when it filled my lungs every time was so energising. I really enjoyed finally moving my legs for such a long distance and not getting weak. And the nature was breathtaking. There was snow everywhere, in the morning the sun was shining and the skies were blue and we saw a lot of animal footprints. Even though I'm so tired and I think I might have caught a cold, I'm still really happy that I went on this hike and had a chance to get a break from the city dust.
