Run & hike – Fragrant mountains of Crete

Breathtaking run & hike this morning near the village of Kallikratis

Could you resist to stop for a few moments of admiration in this magnificent environment? And maybe to say: Hello Universe! Wow! Scented purple everywhere – wild thyme makes my day!  Just run and run. Over a few twists and turns now on a long and winding road… Maybe I can reach out where the Earth meets the Sky… To take a look at the world from high above and you get the Big Picture!

Thyme is all around! And it is about thyme now…. so let’s go back and discover the path from the opposite direction! This is when you feel to be so much more rich and experienced by escalating your horizon and see things from a different view. And in a different light too. I short morning run ended up in a two-hour-long journey. What a start for the day!

To my Hungarian friends: Túl szép, nem lehet nem megállni! És az égbe kiálltani: Üdv az Univerzumnak! Bármerre nézek, kakukkfű vadon, s ez megszépíti a napom. Futás tovább, túl vagyunk már néhány kacifántos kanyaron. Talán elérem a helyet, ahol Föld és Ég összeér. Olyan magaslatokba, ahol felülkerekek a dolgokon… Hisz így tágul az ember világképe.

Minden sarkon, azaz kanyarban akad egy kis kakukkfű. Mint egy kis iránytű. Aztán irány visszafelé, s közben új szemszögből nézzük meg ezt a világot! A másik irányból tekintve újabb felfedezések várnak, így tágul és gazdagodik a világról alkotott képünk és új megvilágításba kerülnek a dolgok. S persze így lesz egy rövid reggeli futásból csaknem 2 órás túra. Remek indítása a napnak, ugye?
