Pyrenees mountains: Adrenaline, Formigal, La Vuelta


The second and last day of our little escape in the mountains ended at Formigal, one of the most famous ski resorts in the Pyrenees. Adrenaline mixed with mountain oxygen pumped every vein of my body while the chairlift was taking us to one of the picks. It's something I hadn't done since I was 9 years old and although I don't have problem with the altitude, there is something scary yet so inviting when you feel almost like a bird. The day ended with one of the finales of the famous bicycle race of La Vuelta where all the people gathered up to cheer and support famous racers such as Spaniard Alberto Contador and this year's winner from Colombia, Nairo Quintana. It was another day that I'll definitely remember forever :)

El segundo y último día de nuestra pequeña escapada en las montañas terminó en Formigal, uno de los centros de eski más famosos de los Pirineos. La adrenalina se mezclaba con el oxígeno de las montañas y llenaba cada vena de mi cuerpo, minetras la telesilla subía cada vez más alto. Es algo que no había hecho desde que tenía 9 años y aunque las alturas no me dan miedo, sentí tanto el miedo como una alegría enorme por poder sentirme como un pájaro volando. El día terminó con una de las finales de La Vuelta donde todo el mundo aplaudía y apoyaba a los famosos biciclistas como Alberto Contador y el ganador de este año,  el colombiano Nairo Quintana.  Fue uno de los días que recordaré para siempre :)

Drugi i poslednji dan našeg kratkog boravka na planinama je bio rezervisan za Formigal, jedan od najpoznatijih ski centara na Pirinejima. Adrenalin se mešao sa planinskim kiseonikom i prodirao kroz svaku venu mogu tela, dok nas je žičara podizala sve više i više. Nemam problem sa visinama ali nisam sela na žičaru otkad sam imala 9 godina, a ta mešavina straha i uzbuđenja jer nešto što nisam mogla da propustim. Uostalom, koliko puta u životu imamo priliku da se zaista osetimo poput ptice? Dan se završio na jednom od vrhova gde se u tom trenutku odvijalo finale jedne od etapa čuvene biciklističke trke La Vuelta, a ljudi su se masovno skupljali ne bi li navijali za Španca Alberta Kontadora i ovogodišnjeg pobenika, Kolumbijca, Naira Kintane. Bio je to jedan od dana koji ću definitivno pamtiti zauvek :)

  1. Oh, Tijana, the views are breath taking! You know how much I love the mountain and you just made me dream about visiting the Pyrenees. The peaks look soooooo mysterious and pretty. Lucky you for having the chance to visit this magical place, I am sure it was magical. How cool you stumbled upon the bicycle race! You look so happy, as usual. Love the jumping photo of Ulises!

    1. Ta rečenica o prozoru u svet mi se urezala u glavu i moram da ti kažem da mi je to jedan od najvećih komplimenata jer znam kako se ja osećam kada gledam svet kroz nečije oči i sanjam o još većim i daljim avanturama :) Taj kraj je nešto neopisivo lepo i ne sumnjam da bi uživala :) Hvala ti, mila <3

    1. Nemaš pojma kako mi je drago ako stvarno odajem(o) takav utisak, pre svega jer je zaista tako :) Ovo mi je takođe jedan od najdražih komplimenta ikad i srce mi je puno što sam okružena nekima od vas sa kojima mogu da budem to što jesam i da se pritom razumemo na nekom dubljem nivou :) <3

  20. que alegria! :) Svi u zraku....ma predivne su mi sve fotografije i svi ti skokovi, i tvoj i od muža i od svih na ovoj zadnjoj slici, da taj zajednički obiteljski je posebno sladak:). Vidim da ti planinski zrak odgovara, a i mjesto je stvarno kao iz snova.

    Baš dobro da ste čak i dio utrke vidjeli, vjerujem da je navijanje bilo zabavno. Mislim da nisam nikad gledala neku biciklističku utrku, ali svaki sport je na svoj način zanimljiv i kada je prava publika uvijek je pregršt dobre energije.

    Što se krajolika tiče, ne znam što me više oduševljava...pusta prostranstva, planine, livade, ili te preslatke kućice, divne građevine i kameni most. Ne znaš čemu bi se prije nadivio!

    Mislim da se nikad nisam vozila na nekoj otvorenoj žičari, sigurno je zanimljivo. Znam da se visine ne bojiš, tako da ...sigurno je vrijedilo pogleda:). Ova sportska kombinacija mi se jako sviđa, fotografije su kao i uvijek sjajne, super izgledaš, baš si kao iz nekoga časopisa!

    1. Da, da, alegria je prava reč :) Hvala ti najlepše, stvarno smo maksimalno uživali, a kako i ne bi na takvom veličanstvenom mestu :)
      Da, desilo se sasvim sličajno da smo izabrali tu lokaciju. Nisam ni ja nikakav poznavatelj istih, ali tu i tamo pokupim nešto jer je ovde to veliki događaj, a eto, sad ću se svake godine podsećati tog dana kada sam i ja imala prilike da vidim jedan deo :)
      Krajolik je tako živopisan i uređen, ma prava bajka :)
      Žičara mi evo i sad uliva strah, ali preživela sam haha. Uostalom, doživljaj je neopisiv. Nekim ljudima je to kao ništa, posebno skijašima pretpostavljam, ali eto, kako je to nešto što se meni retko dešava, bio je poseban dan i u tom smislu :)
