Climb every mountain...

...or just this one.

After yesterday's post about having nothing to do, I went hiking today. It was only a 12km hike, but it involved climbing to the highest mountain in Kosovo, Gjeravica / ─Éeravica. At 2656m, that's 428m higher than Mt Kosciusko.

Travelling there took about 3.5 hours each way, and then it was a 5-hour return hike to the top. There were many wild flowers, snow drifts, glacial lakes, and spectacular views at the top. There was also blood (not much), sweat (a lot) and tears (almost).

I will be in a world of pain tomorrow.
