I tell people I wander to wonder.
I find solace, peace, time to think, space to be me out on trails and on the water. Doses of exploring nature, touching tree bark, petting moss, smelling flowers, watching insects from a crouched position I am not sure I will be able to get up from (completely certain if I do it will not be with any sort of grace) are as essential to me as fruits and veggies and vitamins and hugs from humans.
I am a curious person and can find something new to marvel at wherever I roam. Walks are never routine and there is always something I am going to get excited about. My explorations vary from what some would call nature and wild to urban parks and suburban green spaces. I may be walking along a rail trail near my home, stopping for a quick walk in a park on the way home from work, tackling sections of various long trails, or I may be finding new-to-me nature in another country. Besides being outdoors, the thing that ties all of my adventures together is plants and nature. Through HORTtravels, I share my horticultural findings, my marvels about the natural world and their connection to our world, as I see them.
So delighted to have you along with me on these journeys.
