Bringing back some of the most popular travel posts from my old blog - The love to Italy
On Saturday, I finally went on my first trip outside of Milan. I had waited for this for so long. A bit tired of endless cities I wanted to get out of town into the nature so badly (last time was probably Malibu beach, that now seems so long time ago). So Monte Isola (also called Montisola), a village located on an island within the Lake Iseo was a perfect destination for that! On that island there's a mountain that a group of Erasmus people and other internationals decided to climb. At the highest point, 600m above the sea level, there is a single-nave church, that we reached after a little hike. Perfect place to lay down, have a picnic, a nap in the sun and chill. Also, born and raised in Estonia, mountains to me are well exotic! Estonia could as well be call The Flat Land of Forest. Don't get me wrong, forests are awesome!
Recently I've realized that hiking is damn wonderful! Views getting better and better on every step and it's just a perfect way to spend time away from the city noises. Also, still full on enjoying the fact that on Erasmus you get to meet so many internationals!
Fun fact: 4 people out of a group of about 30 people were from Estonia!
So as always, here's the story in photos:
After 2 trains we headed to a small harbor to catch a boat.
