Growing up going on hiking trips and observing wildlife was a part of our education at school and something we often would do on weekends with family. As a kid it didn’t cross my mind that there are many people in this world that can’t just start a hiking tour from their front door and be back after a few hours of being in wild pristine nature.

As I got older and had access to gaming consoles and internet it got harder to make the first step out the door. Once I was out however I’d be back at it, jumping from rock to rock and balancing on dead trees. Now that I’m older I don’t do as much jumping and balancing, but like many others I still feel the need to go hiking, especially if I’m dealing with complex situations in life. It might not solve your life’s big puzzles, but it can give you the break you need to figure out your next move.
