Blogabout Europe Makes a Wish
This video is from Bled, Slovenia, immediately after a swim from the shores of Lake Bled to an island in the middle. On this island is a church, and the story goes that if you make a wish and ring the church’s bell, that wish will come true. I’m the first to admit I’m a dreamer, so I was all for this wish granting. I just didn’t realize how taxing the swim would be, especially after five weeks of eating bread, drinking beer, and not doing any exercise. Halfway across the lake I had a mini panic attack, convinced I was going to choke on my hair and drown in an embarrassing freak incident. Luckily, I pulled myself together and crawled on the dock, completely out of breath.
