Reconnecting with nature is essentially reconnecting with yourself. It is a journey to self-discovery. A trip that can make you think about life and the world we live in is the one that will make you a better person.

So, where do you go when you want to learn how to love not only the world around you, but also yourself and the experience you have in this world?

Camp in the Scottish Highlands

One of the best ways to reconnect with nature and get back to the roots of human kind is to experience living out in the wild, even if it’s just for one or a few nights.

The Scottish Highlands can offer you an once-in-a-lifetime experience. With the splendid views from the mountains, Scotland appears to be a land coming from a fairy tale.

Once you step on that mountain peak and take a look at how far the land goes beyond your sight, you get a sense of realization. We are so small. The world seems to be hugging us from every side of the world, and all of a sudden, you feel at one with nature.

Explore the Wildlife of Tasmania

When you think of wildlife, Australia instantly comes to mind. With many activities that this country offers, you can always go hiking, or find a nice glamping spot where you will be able to explore Australia’s nature and wildlife.

Tasmania has a lot to offer to those who want to get a close look at some of the most diverse animal species in the world. Their hiking trails will allow you to experience some of the most breath-taking views in the world.

While going on this trip, you get to come face-to-face with some of the most beautiful species out there. You can see the infamous Tasmanian devil and lots of playful penguins in a variety of different sanctuaries and wildlife parks. Just make sure to be respectful of wildlife.

Lastly, don’t forget that going to Australia requires a bit of a preparation. If you plan on visiting a few different cities you should get familiar with the places where you will eat, sleep, stay active on your trip, etc. Caring about fitness and one’s own health on a trip can be demanding, but achievable with a good and reliable guide. Lucky for you, Australia is a great place for those who care about their own health.
