It's fantastic how a small gesture can change your mood. It was hard getting up with ugly, windy weather outside of the tent. But i somehow managed to put down my camp and reluctantly started the day. Soon the road started to ascend sharply.
This invitation made my day - i was on the verge of getting into a negative mood, but when i left the warm house i was as happy as can be, i greeted the wind with a smile and mastered the highest pass of this journey(1990m) with newfound confidence.
