Joy at Mont Joly

BRAZIL | Friday, 5 July 2013 | Views [361]

Last Year, I intentionally quit my job to do some different things aiming to get to know the world I live in better, to try to know me better.. I planned an intense 6 months trip mostly through Europe and Asia, mixing different activities. The idea was keep being active, get to be in different systems, work on my french language skills, give a part back through volunteering, and try to be in the present. Always permeated with lots of nature, arts and trekking. I spent a couple months planning the trip skeleton, but also left some room for surprises, for things I did not know before leaving. Like my best trekking day ever. During my french studies in Chambery, a city in the Rhone-Alpes region, I got the gift of making a new friend, as passionated about nature and mountains as me. He knew the region well and suggested our first trekking itinerary: a day trip  to the Mont Joly view point. The area is a sky station in the winter and a nice trekking opportunity in the summer, offering 360 degrees of astonishing views in clear days.  Well, I had no idea of this last part until we were there, since I refused to see any pictures.. This was indeed,  the most remarcable surprise activity of the whole trip. Maybe because the day was so beautiful and energetic, or the sun was so alive and vibrant, or the Majestic Mont Blanc was by our side most of the time or due to the multitude of wild flowers in the way or still because of the  opportunity of sharing all of these with others.. But Certainly, because of all of these factors combined plus the unique opportunity of being there, experiencing the sun with all the others. . At that day it was very clear that we (the humans), the Mont Blanc, the other mountains, the wild flowers, were all under the same sun. The awareness that we are all part of nature and that we all seemed to know that, took me to a very fulfilled state. All I wished was that everyone else could have a taste of that or other similar moments, that we all could feel that we are part of nature and how important that is, for nature itself and for us all.
