Bopping around Europe (actually at this point it is creeping creakily) is WAY fun and the vicissitudes – aka electronics – of daily life recede into the background. We are back into town life for about a week before the next hiking trip and I find many little details have fallen by the wayside – like scheduled posts that didn’t happen. Eeek – that is all I will say about that.
Our first hut-to-hut trek started by taking a cable car, a small bus-like carriage hanging from large cables, up out of the rain! Steep! and though I am not crazy
about heights I was totally grateful not to be hiking that mountain! We just stopped all the action and stayed at the first Hütte we came to – Gablonzer Hütte. We found a corner table and I spread out my art journal and started playing. It was quiet in the dining/common room and we sipped at our drinks, nibbled at some food and stayed there for a couple of hours before dinner.
The hardest part of this trip is finding time and quiet to journal and do in-real-time posts. Being on the move is just that – moving. I have no problem sitting among the gabbling german-speak after dinner with relatives, making backgrounds or gluing and taping, but…
BUT! I have found it takes a steely resolve to put your head down and write or paint…even with those closest who understand what’s up.
