Once again.. Hola :)
A last little message from
Besides doing my work, I made a few wonderful hikes and runs. I enjoyed the mixture of dense forest and wide views. Of cold mountain winds and hot bare valleys. And of busy towns and quiet villages.
Another favorite moment was watering the garden in the evening while looking at the changing colors of the mountains and the sky. And shopping with an immense choice of local grown fruit and vegetables. And waking up and noticing the sunlight falling into the room.
Happiness is in such small moments.
One thing is for sure: this island has many stairs. No, not just a few.. But heaps..! Some of the walking trails consist mainly of stairs. I could not escape from them, because to reach the door of my cosy home I had to walk up 220 stairs. That meant 440 stairs just to put a garbage bag in the container… If you would like to visit
