Discovery of this summer - amazing things are next to us

   Summer is a great time of having holiday and going somewhere far from a dirty, noisy and gas-polluted city. I like to make such an escape. Usually I went to sea to bathe in caressing waves, take sun baths, lie on the beach and have good time playing beach volleyball, but that summer I discovered a new way to spend my holidays. I stayed in my own Belarus and went closer to nature.

   This hub I start to write on a sheet of paper lying in a hammock and enjoying the view around me. The fact that such beautiful nature is around me is a real discover of this summer - I've never noticed it before. It's really true that we usually don't notice amazing things next to us, we are "blind" in some way, but I'm glad that I finally managed to put off dark glasses.

   I have spent about ten minutes trying to describe what I see around me, but it's indescribable. Luckily I have a camera, though I left both my cell phones at home not to be disturbed, so I'm sure that it's better once to see this place then thousand times to hear about. Enjoy! ;)

   The nature of this place impressed me most of all, but I don’t want you to think that I spent all these four days just lying in a hammock, NO! Besides me here there are quite a lot of people – friendly united company and we have a good rest which I would certainly recollect endless winter evenings. But about our rest I’m going to write next time (and certainly to share some pictures).

   So… TO BE CONTINUED...
