Planinitza 2021

Our first hike with the new car - to a favourite place some 50 km from home - the village of Planinitza in the Cherna Gora mountain. We walked the 14 km trail to peak Tumba and back, slowly enjoying the warm and sunny day and the beautiful scenery around. We hiked the same trail almost to the date two years ago and the fact that spring is a month late this year was clearly visible.

I was a bit worried if we would be OK to make the hike, as on our way to Planinitza we passed through Pernik and took advantage of the open to all vaccination center and got vaccinated with Moderna. However, the medical staff assured us that an easy hike in the open air would be only beneficial to the immune system and there was no place for worries, so we proceeded as planned. And it is a fact - we felt no adverse reactions from the vaccine and now, some 24 hours plus after the vaccination our only complaints are pains in the jabbed arm.
