Soulshare: Communing With Nature

For many people, nature is now enjoyed within the frame of a beautiful picture posted online. There are millions of pictures on social media, picture sharing sites and other online spaces of waterfalls, deserts, mountains and the like.

Few of us take the time to appreciate nature as we should, by actually going out and being in it. For those who don’t have the luxury of living within walking distance of a few trees, here are some ways you can make an excursion out of it.

Cast a Line

If you live in Northern Australia for instance, fishing Melville Island can be a great way to appreciate nature. The waters there are full of great fish, and if you don’t like getting down and dirty, all you have to do is book a trip on one of the many resorts available to tourists. Consider yourself a local tourist, and jump right in.

The best part about being a tourist in your own home (namely doing fishing tours Melville Island style) is that your eyes will be opened to things that you didn’t see before. Things that we take for granted such as the view or the awesome weather becomes a crucial part of our experience, and thus makes the whole excursion that much sweeter.

Strap on those Boots

No matter how urban your locale is, there will be some natural trail somewhere within an hour’s reach. Look it up online and get yourself ready. Be realistic about your fitness condition: just because you hit the gym everyday doesn’t necessarily mean you would be a fit hiker. Think about how much you want to walk and then find a hiking trail that matches it. Take a backpack, water, protective clothing and go take the walk. If your idea is to appreciate nature, don’t try to scale a mountain; go walk in a forest instead. That way you will get to breathe in the extra oxygen and absorb the good vibes of unspoiled nature.

Pitch a Tent

If you are a regular camper, then good for you. If you are not, then you might want to go to a pre-existing campsite, which will feature taps to get water and toilets. You can take your own food, dispose of garbage responsibly and at night, listen to the sounds of the forest. You can teach yourself how to make a campfire, how to pitch a tent and how to survive a night without electronics and WIFI because most campsites are out of range of mobile phones. If you have been camping before and want to try something more, then camp in a forest or on a mountain al naturale.

Dream Holidays Can Come True

There have always been certain places that we either see on TV or in a magazine, and we long to be there. There are those moments when we decide that we are going to go there when we grow up.

When we are working and when we start earning for ourselves. Some of us keep those dreams in mind and work towards achieving them, while some of us forget about those childhood moments as the years pass by.

We get so busy with our lives that we don’t realize we haven’t taken any time out of it to enjoy life for ourselves. But the person who finally does get there, in the end, posts a picture on social media saying ‘childhood dream finally comes true’ with an extremely elated smile on their face.

What Are Some Of These Dream Destinations?

If you ask the general public what that one place or country that they would go to if is given the chance for free most of them would name the most popular holiday destinations like Australia, England, and USA. Because these are the countries that are famous for their tourism. And it’s not just the major cities in these countries that people are trying to visit. More and more people are wanting to go visit the smaller and scenic towns in these countries, for example, the port city of Geelong in Victoria, Australia or the city of Cotswold in England. These places are ideal for those who want to have a quiet holiday just absorbing the amazing views these cities have to offer. And when it comes to the Cotswold and Geelong accommodation, there is nothing that can beat the accommodation that these small towns have to offer.

You can get anything you want from cosy and private to luxurious and loud. These little towns have everything that you can ask for. Sightseeing during the day to exciting night life for people of all ages to enjoy. There is something on offer for everyone. You can go as a couple or a family and you will still find plenty of entertainment for all age groups. The hospitality is great with the townsfolk always having an inviting smile on their faces, and always willing to help. And when you are on holiday in a strange city this kind of welcome can make you feel at home.

So never let go of your childhood dream to visit a certain place. Always keep it at the back of your mind and work towards it with the aim of getting there one day.
