Small Wooden Bridge Sarajevo – Childhood crossroad spot

relaxing
Relaxing

This "Small Wooden Bridge" in Sarajevo just takes me directly to my childhood. The bridge, the weeping willow, the memories. Now it's even been renovated.

When I was a little girl, this small bridge was a spot I had crossed so many times that it became one of my favourites. It doesn't have a name, but standing on this bridge offers one a view on many important spots.

It's just an example and proof of how some insignificant spots cam become so important for one's perspective.

It's like a shortcut on both ways of Skenderija, depending on if you are simply taking a walk or just trying to get to the tram, bus or trolleybus station quicker.

Just next to the bridge, there is a big, beautiful weeping willow. 

Back then, when I was a girl, it looked soooo big, it looked sooo strong and I felt sooo great reaching it.

On this small bridge I used to climb to see the river below better or to catch the weeping willow branches, which often freaked my grandma :- ). Yeah, I still do that. Both climbing and freaking others out by climbing :- )

This bridge has just been renovated so it's even a better spot for taking crazy photos as this one.

A daylight photo of this bridge puts the willow in focus and an evening one, with all the city lights and  shadows, makes for a great view and a great spot for a quiet break with the river murmur.

The bridge makes those 10 footsteps a flashback to childhood.
