World's mountains: from Scotland’s Highlands to Mount Fuji
There is something about mountains and their majestic grandeur that just draws us all to them. It’s not just their tall stance and sharp peak that seem to be reaching for the skies. They are symbolical in nature: they represent dreams and success. You look at them and you get these feelings of hope and drive.
You might think that mountains are all the same, but it’s not true. Some are greyish, others are of more brown shades, some are covered with forests, others are completely naked. But that’s the magic. Imagine the cold breeze that envelops Scotland’s highlands, the serenity of Norwegian Fjord, and the awe-inspiring greatness of Mount Fuji against the gradient blue sky. Feels like traveling? Because we are!
A cabin in the mountain with a lake view
What would we all give to stay in a cabin in the mountain with a lake view for even just a weekend? You know, just to get away from our busy lives in the city. Imagine breathing in that cold morning breeze that sweeps past the valley; and sitting by the fire, drinking hot cocoa just before bedtime as it gets a bit chiller at night, watching through the window the nightfall on the lake.
Or you are rather a trekker? Walking in the mountains for a full day, coming back exhausted, and having a drink with your friends or family under the patio of the log cabin, watching the sunset on the lake. That’s what’s good with mountains, you can do whatever you want, alone or with relatives and still have a feeling of fulfillment, by the cabin with a lake view.
