I was looking at my old photos and saw some that invoked soul enriching feeling. It was my photos from hiking at the Black Forest.
This trip was a surprise from Mr T last Autumn and we stayed at the amazing Hotel Traube Tonbach. Though the highlight was in fact spending a couple of days in this marvellous hotel, the pinnacle of this trip for me was our hiking day at the Black Forest.
I love a hike. But hiking in the chilly weather sort of made me taken aback for a bit to be honest. However, it did happened and I don’t regret it one bit. In fact, this trip made me go for a winter hike without any hesitation.
Now the good part, what does hiking actually do for you?
3. It gives you a breather. There’s something about fresh air filling your lungs, it exhales away the hustle and bustle of our busy busy life. You get to know that hey, there is clarity around us when we actively look for it.
2. It reminds you of the beauty we of Mother Earth. When you hike, especially when it is a long one, you tend to actually open your eyes and your senses. You get to know that hey, you become aware of the things that are actually around you.
1. The most satisfying part of what hiking can do for you. It reminds you of your ability. All the good stuff we often forget we have in us: Perseverance, patience, agility, sense of adventure, sense of wonderment. All in all, that CAN DO attitude. You get to know that hey, I am alive and I could be the best version of myself.
Hiking is a great activity. Schedule it in all season. You might just receive the inspiration that I did.
