♠️ Solitude ♠️
Hiking is, without a doubt, one of my favourite activities. Going out into the woods, with no real purpose other than to reconnect and seek a pure adventure creates such a deep seeded happiness. We get so preoccupied while living in the city; our brains are busy with ambition, our thoughts are silenced by the sounds of car horns and chatter. Our emotions are drowned out by waves of anxiety. In the forest there are only thoughts of moving forward. The only sounds are those of the trees crackling, and the birds chirping. There is nothing there than you and the earth beneath you (and perhaps some wild company). Your gratitude spreads to the simplest tasks and endeavours; to your legs for trudging you forward, and your lungs for devouring the fresh air. I think hiking is, without a doubt, one of my favourite activities.
