Once I came home from London I had 4 full days of work and meantime I had to pack for another exciting yet waaay different trip.
This trip was a dream coming true, since I wanted to go to the mountains for a reaaally long time and now I got the opportunity so I used it.
We stopped in one school near Zakopane, left our things there and took most necessary ones and went into the wild!
First goal was Morskie Oko.
Sitting and chilling there was a true bliss. I was surrounded by high mountains, wild nature and amazing people. What could be better?
…and went further on our main goal – Rysy. Rysy is the highest peak of Tatra Mountains in Poland (2.499m), other, even higher peaks are situated in Slovakia.
We did not managed to get there, actually. We gave up since it started getting dark real quick and it was freezing. We came to the conclusion that it would be too risky to go any further, not even knowing exactly where and how long it will take. It was a hard, rocky path, which was really uneasy for me considering my anemia, cold and tiredness. Yet we made it to The Black Lake below Mount Rysy (Czarny Staw pod Rysami) and a went a bit higher till we could clearly see both Morskie oko and Black Lake together. Way down wasn’t easy as well, it was dark and the path was steep.
There are too many pictures and making collages it kind of useless since it doesn’t show the beauty of it, so here’s a slide show:
After spending night in Morskie Oko Mountain Hut, we packed our bags and decided on our new destination, new peak to reach – Kasprowy Wierch. Kasprowy Wierch is 1987 m. high, so it’s not that high as Rysy. You can reach Kasper Peak by cable car, yet we did it ourselves. Path was easy at first, yet to reach the very top of it you had to sacrifice all strength you had. It was uneasy for me, I had not much water and backpack was getting heavier with every step, sometimes I would crawl, had a lot of breaks, enjoyed other Tatry mounts. That peak is probably the most popular one, since it’s not that high in comparison, yet still gives amazing view and is easy accessible.
We got to the top, I was one of the first to reach (surprise, surprise:D), we were sooo hungry that we decided to go and eat before capturing and savoring a moment. -.- (food there tastes better tho)
Weather was horrible. Well, sun was shining, but the wind was really cold and strong, I couldn’t feel any warmth. My pictures aren’t the best, but here’s another slide show of them :
On our last day we went to Gorące Potoki – water park with thermal pools. I learnt how to swim so I was more than happy! Now I hope I won’t lose my basic swimming skill until the next time 😀 it was very fun and pleasant, since water was soooo warm or hot.. It was everything I needed after two days crawling up and down.
We headed home after pool and dinner later, way back home was extremely fun c:
As for now I am cheering for the wonderful time I had. That was a really nice end of the summer and this trip was something like a spontaneous, blank space, which You could fill in with everygoddamnthing You wanted. This year so far was hell of the year and I am more than happy to welcome another chapter of this year which will definitely be life changing. And I am welcoming it with my very open hands and huuugge sunny smile.
