Once again, the path took us to a small Karstic village near the Italian border, Vojščica. This time we joined an organized Sage hike 2019, which was already 13th in a row. Local Community Vojščica organized the first one far back in the year 2007, but three years ago, the organization of the hike was handed over to newly established Sport-Cultural-Tourist Society Farjovca, which takes care of the village development.

First, we must know from where did the name come from? Part of the route of the hike takes us along the slopes of Grmada, where on the rocky ridge of this elevation grows the plantations of sage. In a time of the hike, spring, sage is just in the initial stage of flowering and it smells incredible, which always takes over the hikers. And for sure it did, the sight on sage was just beautiful, and it was fulfilled with the unique view to the surroundings. At the same time, wild asparagus was seen through the whole route of the hike. As it grows high and mighty above the karst slopes. Many of the hikers were like small children running for their candy, to gather asparagus.
