for all that it’s worth, you were worth it


 
Sometimes the weather’s just not on your side and goes against your grand plans of making a great weekend getaway. But every cloud has a silver lining as they say, almost literally this time πŸ˜‰

We were in Strandzha, a small-ish mountain in southeastern Bulgaria, but weren’t getting what we had hoped to be a nice sunny day. Instead, dark clouds were hanging low and it was rainy. The wind was occasionally picking up and it brought you chills. We were almost at the point of calling it a day but then decided to drive up this hut above the town of Malko Tarnovo as we had heard the view was nice. The plan was to turn back quickly if the weather wasn’t going to be cooperative. Just as we got there though, luck finally turned in our favor and through the clouds we were able to see the town from above.

Suddenly the wind died down and it stopped drizzling.

The ground was still wet and made the leaves even more colorful.

We decided to go for a walk in this beautiful misty weather.

It’s hard for this to come through the images I suppose, but the forest had gained this mystical feel to it.

It was eerily quiet and peaceful.

It lured you further and further in.

It was almost as if we were in a movie set, it was that great πŸ™‚

Looking up.

Looking closely.

The moss covered ground was so much fun to walk on… I do have a thing about moss, but that’s a whole other story πŸ˜‰

Not long after that the precarious weather showed its bad temper again and it started raining so we drove off, feeling lucky to have had that enchanting walk in the woods. The conditions were touch and go all day, but we managed to make the most of it by visiting remove villages along the border like this one.

Time seems to move at a different pace in places like this… I think these guys knew it full well.

  1. There is stillness and feels of melancholy yet seeing the village it just burst awaiting discovery and immersion of its culture and people. Indeed, it was an enchanting walk in the forest, these photos made me longed for the experience. Enveloped in the foliage, chills from the wind and misty weather – I might have stayed longer there. Thanks.
