Bistritza - Zeleznitza 2022

We've been so busy this last week with some home repairs and improvements, that I had no time for my hobbies and the blog. We even had to cut our Saturday hike to a short and close by destination - the popular Bitritza - Zeleznitza trail and back. 

There is a reason why we rarely hike this so popular trail - it is too crowded, too close to the city and the feeling of detachment from civilization, traffic and people is kind of lost, when there are so many hikers, bikes and even baby prams along the trail.

To compensate for the levelness of the trail and because of our shortage of spare time, we umped our hiking speed and in the end were quite exhausted, but satisfied with the exercise. The weather was lovely, not too hot, the scenery - still freshly green, so all in all - it was a nice hike. However, I doubt we'll choose Bitritza - Zeleznitza any time soon.
