Man's heart away from nature becomes hard.

I read this quote somewhere a while back and found it significant in my life. The more distant we are from nature, the harder it is to see its complex beauty and appreciate it. As an urban girl, I'm more likely to hear the noisy sound of cars than to enjoy the wake up call of a bird singing. Hence, whenever I'm traveling, I make a special time to be near nature, whether its hiking on the wilderness of Africa, or walking barefoot on a beach at home and abroad. It rejuvenates my spirit and humbles me by reminding us all how insignificant we are in the scope of the universe. In the words of Kahlil Gibran: Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.

Here are some of my favorite spots from my travels

Love the quote and envy your travels! Beautiful photos.

I'm stuck in NYC, but I enjoy nature very much when I go home to the Hudson valley.
