From One Side to the Other
EN: We began to experiment with the fretsaw and the only downside we could find so far is that we can't stop: I get loads of ideas and Valentin would cut the wood for hours. Which is just great for me:) In the old times, children would learn at school how to use this tool. I didn't catch those times, so I'm happy I'm learning now. If you have kids, just buy a fretsaw (it's not expensive) and have some quality time with them.
EN: Although the weather forecast was predicting siberian cold and we did indeed have ice flower on the windows, we went for an adventure, to reach the Giumalau peak. I only knew it from the geography lessons, so I was excited to mark it on the real map, not only on the paper one.
EN: We were lucky to climb on a sunny weather and this, combined with the breathtaking view, made the ascending more easy.
EN: As we were getting upper, the snow was getting thicker and the quietness deeper. Such a special feeling of fluffy, pure snow. And the crispy, fresh air...
EN: When we got close to the peak (which wasn't Giumalau, because I decided it was time to go back after 4 hours of climbing, by which 2 were through 1 m snow), the weather suddenly changed, the wind got stronger and the landscape was surrounded by thick fog.
EN: It was my first mountain climbing in winter time and I really enjoyed it:)
