scotland part 2

Standard

Nature holds the key to our aesthetic, intellectual, cognitive and even spiritual satisfaction. – E.O. Wilson

Keep close to Nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean. – John Muir

Nature, cheaper than therapy. – Anon

On with my photo series! On the second day of our Scotland trip (we slept extremely well!), we decided to explore the nearby forest. There was a nature trail that led to the Avich Falls by River Avich, which was about a mile away from our lodge. As I posted these pictures below, the memories of our walk and our quality time together as a family came rushing by. I wish I was there again, it was truly memorable. I came across a meaningful quote the other day, ‘Collect moments, not things.’ I am that kind of person.

The love for things will fade once the next best object comes along, but precious moments stay with you forever. And when life gets you down and people stress you out, those memories provide you that escapism. You have those moments which have turned into memories to look back upon, they make you smile. I hope to return to my hideaway in Scotland again someday, far away from everyone and everything, save my nearest and dearest. Life is tough at times, why not escape now and then? 😉 Will be back real soon with more stories to share, stay tuned ok!
