The beauty of Nature
The pantone of forest is, except green and only green, seems like endless sea of green. We walked through verdant places. Fascinated to see the beauty of nature. The leafy paradise is stillness beautiful and appealing, either constant forest trees, river and waterfall, or vivid wild mushroom, butterfly fly and birds sing. In the forest, you can hear quiet, feel peaceful, you can connect natural energy.
Hiking in the trip
Hiking trip is interesting. Every step, it takes you to see the nature in different angles. It leads you to discover a route to the destination. It exhausts your energy and sweating, but it is all worth because you will get there finally. Same as a life journey.

Wanderlust in Saxon
We stayed in a lovely studio flat for a week in Bad Schandau. Transportation is almost easy accessible from here to reach National Park area. A simple itinerary in Saxon suggests, 2 days hiking in The Saxon Switzerland National Park (German broader) & 2 days hiking in Bohemian Switzerland National Park (Czech broader).
How do we wanderlust in Saxon : First, take a little Kirnitzsch tram (timetable) to valley in the morning. Walk in the forest along hiking trail. End a wonderful day and see the sunset, return by a boat at River Elbe. Another day, we picnic on the top of mountain. Drink a cup of coffee next to the waterfall. Walk a little bit higher to the mountain top, finally enjoy a panorama view of Bastei and Lilienstein.
