It is fine to get lost, I guess. Maybe that is why I was so excited to start this journey, besides fulfilling my European dreams, I simply just don’t know what I want to become at this very moment of my life. This trip also provided me with a feeling that I could just escape the reality that’s been waiting for me in my homeland; a lot and even myself expects me to have a clear path in my life, but all I have is a goal and still figuring out how to get there.
Anyway before you all get lost inside my thoughts, I will have to say that yes, it’s been pretty crazy in my mind lately. But whatever, all I know is that I could tell myself that it is fine and everything would get better. It is how it’s supposed to be right? So this is my trip, I tried to make it flow smoothly and like the lakes in Switzerland, constantly being beautiful as if they are crystals in your eyes.
Switzerland is a country known for its breathtaking nature, for me, it’s even a country that exceeded so much of my expectations! Finding peace was the first one that I’ve discovered in this country, on where feeding my eyes with its overwhelming sceneries and listening to birds chirping were already enough for me to have a great day. I’ve realised that maybe I (or maybe you as well) could fully find peace within myself if my surroundings can calm my whole system down. But I guess, I am not the best person who can give you an advise on this subject matter, because only you could feel that certain amount of peace in you, no one else.
Getting lost, yet feeling blessed is the most important thing that I’ve felt in Switzerland; I even remembered my mom constantly saying “We’re so lucky, I can’t believe I could see a place this beautiful!” Because it is true, that is what the country provided us, a feeling of contentment with a constant thought that there will be a surprise that we will encounter from the nature for the following seconds that will pass by. So I kept on walking and walking, I know that I am getting tired, yet a part of me says it’s only for a while that I will be in Switzerland, better make the best out of it.
Maybe as of this moment you’re wondering when will I share a place and tell how much to go there and what to see there, but sorry this blog entry is not the best place for those questions. However, speaking of wondering, a place in Interlaken, Switzerland, named Harder Kulm or best known as Interlaken’s Home Mountain, actually made me think that the nature truly adapted to so much to the rapid change of this life to provide the people for its needs and wants.
There may be higher mountains to go to in Switzerland, but it’s just amazing for me to reach Harder Kulm. Going up there with a train and seeing a fully developed area on top where you could view the skyline of Interlaken provided me with a lot of questions like, “Are we destroying the nature?” or “Are we disturbing it?” Of course I did not get a clear answer for that so I will just share one thing, no matter what the answer to my questions is, being up there is beautiful, it’s purely beautiful that when I was on top I honestly did not know what to say.
On top, I have also encountered a lot of old people, one was even celebrating her 80th birthday, and that was the time that I told myself that this is the life that I’ve always wanted, a feeling of familiarity but knowing that there will be a sense of adventure along the way. I will always want to have a peace of mind, but in order to grow I will also need to embrace the chaos and find a light in there. To tell you the truth, writing a blog entry about my feelings is still quite strange for my own self. I do not know where to start and end, in spite of that I just want you to know this, look on the brighter side of this world, I know it is hard, but everything is going to be fine, like this blog entry, it is just the start for me, there will still be a lot to follow. So go on and let yourself grow and improve and embrace every moment of your life, because like Switzerland each of our lives are wonderful and it is worth travelling for.
