Soča river – my emerald beauty

This summer has been generous to me. It has given me a lot of water:  lakes, rivers and the sea. :) And the queen of them all is Soča river. I have been waiting to stand in all her beauty for months! :)

It was a beautiful Saturday and I was the driver. This is an important information, because I looove to drive. :) I wanted th trip to be loaded with the water so first we went to the lake predil in Italy, close tothe border. Passing Bovec, Mangrt, the pass Predel and the border I saw the lake, that was showing off through the forest on the hill. We took a half an hour to walk by and in the lake. There were quite a few people sunbathing and swimming. Each of them in their own way of spending time by the lake. Mine is to feel the water, being quite (I actually can do that :P) and enjoy  the colors.

Afterwards we went back to Bovec and rented bikes. This is my favourite way of spending time … in the nature on a bicycle in a good company. I wanted to see, feel and touch the most magical little places of the river, so we went toward the village Soča. Of course there had to be a surprise: a puring rain. :D We were completely wet and had to wait under the trees by the road for the rain to stop. So funny, indeed! :) We didn’t give up and drove approximately 60 km along the river. It was breathtaking. It may sound cheesy but when I am standing in the Soča river, it has a healing effect on me. :)

Surprisingly it was not so cold, so I could dive in the river to my hips … The fact, that I could hardly feel my soles for some time, is insignificant. ;)

I promised her to come back this summer … I will let you know, when I will keep this promise.
