One time my life was different, I graduated as a mechanical expert and i started college to become an environmental engineer, I was confused by having to devote my whole life to something that was not mine.
Currently it’s not easy to enter in the system and is already a fortune to have a good job,i was trapped, I needed to escape and one day of 2012 with three good friends (Vinicius,Jack e Nikson) organized a hike on a peak, the highest in our area, the Monte Generoso, with its 1701 meters it dominates the southern zone of the Ticino Alps.
We were poorly equipped, it was winter, and none of us had the hiking boots, but luckily there was little snow. We reached the point of departure at 9, we were excited to be able to see for the first time a 360 degree overview, but also the sense of adventure that is present in each of us had come to life and intoxicated us, making this excursion a real mission.
During the ascent we decided to leave the trail to go up a steep grassy ridge, the thoughts flew, swept by the cold winter wind, and after about five hours we reached the summit. There was a moment of silence in which each of us stood still to admire that vast expanse of snowy mountains, some looked really impressive and the desire to continue to explore this “new world” grew stronger.
The return to the car was not exactly the best, I had lost my car keys, Vinicius had lost his cell phone and Nikson had arrived late for work. The only one to come out unscathed was Jack, who with his infinite calm, awaited the arrival of my father who had brought me the spare keys.
