We all have hopes and dreams. Some are easily attainable and some border on the impossible and wishful thinking. Often, as life happens, we give up on these dreams, accepting the fact that, just because we want them, doesn’t mean that we will have them.
On the other hand, there are dreams and wishes that we keep safe and nurture in our hearts. No matter how much time passes, and no matter the odds, we hold out hope that they will come true.
This is what Hallstatt is for me. It was a dream not I thought at that time, was nearly impossible for me to fulfill.
I was only 24 when I first saw videos and pictures of Hallstatt. From that moment on, I knew in my heart that I wanted to come visit it someday. I wanted to see the lakeside wooden houses facing the Austrian Alps.
But I knew that it was a pipe dream. I was a starving journalist then and my salary wasn’t enough to afford a trip to Europe. So I put the dream in the back burner, hoping for some miracle.
It took me 10 years before I could finally fulfill this dream, but Ofinally, I was able to achieve recently and the long wait, only makes the trip all the more sweeter and memorable.
Here’s a short video of what I saw in Hallstatt. More stories on Hallstatt coming soon.
