37 kilometers. 23 miles. Not much. If you’re driving. But if you’re walking entire time … then this is something completely different. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. Because now we have those special memories and we put our bodies to some sort of limits, since we never tried walking such a long distance and we weren’t even sure how will this look like at the end.
It was Thursday morning, August 15th. My grandma told me not to go, since this is a crazy hike. My mom shared her opinion. Since they both know my dad so well and you can be sure he will not pet you during any sports activity and he will make you push your limits even further. But since I’m just as stubborn as he is – I knew I can do this. No way I would quit and admit I can’t do it. That will never happen!
Hiking is good for your relationship. We spend whole day side by side of each other. Ok, this wasn’t anything new – but we were never in such situation for 8 hours. You get cranky, annoying and moody so easily when you’re facing “un-normal” situations like that. You’re tired and you just want that road to end as soon as possible while you’re dealing with last kilometers. But we did so good! We had fun, we laughed like crazy entire time and we had a feeling of connection on a completely different level, since we shared this experience together. We talked about so many different things that may never crossed our minds in “normal” situation, but of course you’re going to talk about gazillion things when you have nothing else to do for 8 hours, except talk, talk and then talk some more.
I love it how he helped me with anything I needed (even if I didn’t ask for it) and he was just such a sweet boyfriend. He knows how to push my buttons sometimes, but at the same time – I know how much he cares about me, since he never fails to show it.
We were so sore when this picture was taken. I had a problem with my ankle, and his knee hurt like crazy. So at this moment we were ready for some cold drink, nice movie and soft bed. It wasn’t easy breezy, but I would do it all over again. It was amazing. It’s perfect test for any relationship – either you’ll realized that you have nothing to talk about anymore or you’ll feel more close then you ever were after that day.
Have a great day,
