What is it about nature that you love?
I feel part of something bigger, connected to what really matters.
What is your favorite thing to do in nature and why?
I like to walk around and take photos. I take trips to the waterfalls, into the mountains, to the sea. I play sports. There are so many things I love to do. It's hard to choose just one.
Basically, I love going anywhere that I can hear the sound of nature uninterrupted by the noise of the city!
What is your advice to someone who isn’t active enjoying the outdoors today? How can they easily get started?
Considering that we are part of a big system called ‘Nature,’ getting outdoors is a lot like being better connected to yourself.
Start walking and breathing, turn on all of your senses and embrace nature. Really take it in!
