You live, you learn

sweden_lapland2

The Fjällräven Classic, it’s been well over a year ago that I participated in this daunting trek. No, I didn’t finish the trekking, but I’ve finally made my peace with it. Had I known then what I know now, I would have done a lot of things differently. I suppose that is what life is all about: you live and you learn. What I gained from this experience is an even deeper reverence for nature. Swedish Lapland is impressive. A lot more open and barren than I thought it would be, but gazing upon Mount Kebnekaise and other snowy peaks in this photo, I can’t help but gaze in wonder. From the point where I took this photo we had a good few hours ahead of us before we stopped for the night. The distance was deceiving and it was a lot farther than we had calculated, but that’s what nature is about too…you have to keep your wits about you and pace yourself. Nature isn’t waiting for anybody.

    • I’d say go for it! The organisation is impeccable and the people very friendly. And not to forget the incredible nature, quite raw but invigorating as well. I hope to someday finish this trek. Thank you for commenting!
