Bat fit challenge #8 : Get outside!
So this weeks challenge for a healthier life is to get outside and of course write about it.
I'm a person who loves being outdoors. Unfortunately there have been far too little of that during the winter, but I'll hope I will change that. When I have the time, I prefer to walk in the forest before the bike paths and roads around here. So here's a map over the forest close to our house. This is an orientation map; all paths, larger stones, houses etc is on this map. The white and light green fields are forest and the yellow are meadows . And the blue are wet :), very simple.
These walks in the forest are something I need to be happy. When I feel a bit moody I take a walk and come home as a complete different person. Johan says it's visible on the outside, my shoulders are lower and I glow. About five years ago the wildlife population changed remarkably around here, there is lot's of predators out there, bears and wolfes. I don't mind meeting a wolf as long as it is one. I don't wan't to meet a bear again even though he was more scared of me than I of him. And the last I wan't to meet is a wild boar, they can be very agressive. But those animals can be very curious and follow you around. Sometimes I use to clap my hands or stomp my feet, when I feel uncomfortable, because it's better that they know that I'm there than to take them by surprise.
This summer I will fill the fridge with blueberries lingonberries cranberries, fungus and hopefully, cloudberrys. All of this can be found were I walk (the map). And I only have to walk up the hill on the other side of the road to find the blueberries.
