Triglav

So we’re moving out this Friday again, on our annual masochistic circle jerk, where we accurately measure every gram we put on our backs and drag it for dozens of kilometers through terrain that is, safe to say, not exactly designed with ergonomics in mind- Trying not to wonder why.

aIMG_2953The 5 of us are headed for the Triglav reserve this time, located in Slovenia. If you’ll have a looksie, you might understand why we chose the location. We sure as hell didn’t pick it for convenience, with the via ferrata and rainy climate. But, we’ll be going by car so if things get awkward, we can always backtrack and drive to the nearest beach to make up hard-core stories while sipping cocktails. Of course, we’d have to find ourselves a rock for a few photos.

Speaking of which, I’ll be the photographer again. Since a year or two, the guys allow me to pitch in my camera as “common weight”, which also includes food, tent and cooking gear (in short, stuff that we use commonly) which means that they all invest in my photos. While this puts quite a bit of pressure on me, it’s also a pretty big confidence boost- Apparently they like the photos enough to put some effort into making it easier for me.
