My mind is somewhere else, I’m daydreaming, not thinking of anything at all. An easy hike on a forest road and then suddenly there is something brown, something big coming out of the bushes. O o. It steps right in front of me on my path.

Ten meters away. I freeze. Is it a wild boar? A deer? NO a bear! Aaahh, a bear! He hasn’t seen me. What to do? Don’t panic, but before I can think of what to do, I turn around and walk slowly away. I hear him. Running. O o o. Away from me.

I look over my shoulder to get a glimpse. Yes, it really is a bear! A beautiful brown bear. I start shaking. Oefff. Haha, jeeej! I saw a bear!!

A bit nervous, but with a big smile on my face I go on. Yes, in the bears’ direction. Singing out loud. “Always look on the bright side of life.” is the only song that pops up. “Pidompidompidompidompidom”.
