It was cold and rainy road trip to Estonia. But oh.. whatever…
Holidays never finishes because of a bad weather , right? Early morning i woke up, with beautiful intentions for a small getaway from my hometown. This was a 3 days holiday weekend and I decided to have a road trip 🙂
“ROAD TRIPS ARE THE EQUIVALENT OF HUMAN WINGS. ASK ME TO GO ON ONE, ANYWHERE. WE’LL STOP IN EVERY SMALL TOWN AND LEARN THE HISTORY AND STORIES, FEEL THE GROUND, AND CAPTURE THE SPIRIT. THEN WE’LL TURN IT INTO OUR OWN STORY THAT WILL LIVE INSIDE OUR HISTORY TO CARRY WITH US, ALWAYS. BECAUSE STORIES ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN THINGS.” – VICTORIA ERICKSON
First day i thought that what should i do ? It’s not my type of weather. Do i really drove this far for meeting the rain ? That’s crazy ! But suddenly, i realised – c’mon, weather is perfect and all the taboos are in my head . So i decided to enjoy every little second of this trip. If i where honest (it’s irony) i would have been told you that all those days i had a terrible mental toothache .. Funny right: rain, toothache, oh and of course, i almost forgot – full moon !
Can you imagine? I was going crazy !
Beautiful landscapes during the road trip of Baltic States astonished me with calmness and collateral beauty. You know, when we sit at home we don’t see all the magic in the nature. It’s BEAUTIFUL ! Large rye fields around, also storks trying to find worms in them. And roads . Roads are very calm and straight. Well if you ever put your head up while you are in the car seat, you would notice elephants, faces, flowers and a lot of beautiful things that sky is trying to paint for us from the clouds.
So, it was heavy rain as i mentioned before. Sitting at a rental flat was not an idea for small vocation. Suddenly i decided that i need to find where to buy a rain coat and where to rent a bicycle in this kind of weather it was quite hard. I managed to find both. And the journey started. Driving in the rain with bicycle, was like a dream for a kid. I remembered my childhood and this experience drove me away to the past , when i was little girl, running in the rain without any doubts. With a lot of dreams and purposes which i thought will never disappear. But driving in present, now, i realized that i am missing those dreams and ideas which i had when i was kid. Why do people forget what they wanted in their childhood? Why most of people stop seeking their dreams? This was my main thought that day .. Why , and where it dissapeared?
I felt freedom together with rain and wind which was blowing towards me. I drove near the sea and she was really harsh and wavy. So time flew.. The day was about to finish, and i came back to the flat where i could get a warm cup of coffee and some snacks. I took a shower and washed away all the thoughts of a day and i felt clean from within . My soul was calm and peaceful. After that i fell asleep very fast.
Next days was a bit stressful for me , because of the toothache . But time went very fast, so after visiting a bit of city, it was time to go home. Packing is my favorite thing but not when you don’t want to leave. Despite the weather this vocation was a good mind training . I am grateful that i had these kind of memories from this trip to Estonia. And of course, driving back was the best road trip for now. Weather changed to better one and it was hard to leave. In Latvia i was driving passing by the seashore, and through the trees i saw brilliant sea. I just needed to stop there – and I did. The view was mesmerizing. Sea waves where calling me to dance with them , so i ran to jump into the sea. Water was lukewarm , refreshing . This immersion under water was like consecration. I was so happy . I couldn’t stop jumping together with the waves , well.. it was more like our dance together. It was only me and the sea. I will always love the sea, for me it’s so magical, and i feel best near it.
That’s it .. I was back in the car , smiling all over. Happy as a child. With all the dreams back in my head. I was about to go home. Road was same, flat and calm. Not too much cars, not too much dynamic. When i reached home i was really tired, but nevertheless i always unpack my stuff and only after this i get a shower and jump into the bed. Nighty night all you beautiful dreams. I hope you will come true..
