... in the middle of nowhere. We were going slightly downhill at the moment, but when our driver put the van in neutral we started moving backwards uphill as if a giant hand was pulling us. The driver explained that the gravity there was stronger than normal and it wasn't mischievous ghosts.
As the sun was setting we arrived to the lake, which was dark and misty at the time but beautiful. It was great to finally be there.
