THe glory of a story
Thursday we struck off about 9am, heading to the Grande Dixience Damn, at the head of the Val d'Hérens in the canton of Valais in Switzerland. At 285 m (935 ft) high, it is the tallest gravity dam in the world and is part of the Cleuson-Dixence Complex.
Once there we took the trolley to the top, enjoying the phenomenal views from the top. After walking along the top of the dam, we took some time to explore the trail that runs alongside Lake Dix. We didn't venture too far, just far enough to take in some of the incredible flowers that line the walkway and climb up the side of the mountain.
After enjoying time at the top, we then all walked down the winding trail down the side of the mountain together. It was a beautiful journey, although the day was very cloudy and hindered some of the view we would have enjoyed with more sunshine. It was still magnificent from start to finish.
So why do I spend time documenting and sharing the various aspects of our trip on this blog? Well, when I clarify my own passions, some of what becomes clearest to me is my love for travel, photography and writing. When I do the sweet-spot exercise to tryi and pinpoint a job that would put me in my bliss, what comes to mind every single time is being a travel writer. Will I ever actually be a professional one? Maybe, maybe not. But as I take steps to work myself closer and closer to my passions, I have come to realize that I do travel now. I do lose myself in the wonder and love of my photography right now. And I can share my experiences with others around the world right here on my own site right now. So with the philosophy of 'intention, attention, no tension' ...I have set my intention, I am paying attention in the ways that I can...and doing what I love...well that is no tension. If it's meant to be it will be. If not, I am having a blast just living life. I hope you find ways to do the same, whatever your own passions are!
