Nature’s Pace was started as a website for walking and travel and a blog was added to share the experience of a 6-month travel trip to South America. Whenever I went for a walk, went travelling or reached a destination I was always contemplating nature and man’s interactions with it. So it seemed a good idea to give the website a central theme of nature.
The 6-month trip was a big motivation to give up trying to balance work and life and to take the plunge to pursue a passion for travel, walking, nature, culture and the outdoors. It was a chance to tackle a long-held aspiration to do a long-term tour, even though I had passed the 60 mark.
One aim of Nature’s Pace is to inspire you to realise your aspirations and dreams. Nature’s Pace is, in part, a journal of my travels and a collection of experiences. It is also a compendium of information about travel, destinations, walking, nature and this will make Nature’s Pace a useful resource for you. Why not sign up to receive my newsletter and learn when new information is contributed and new blog posts are added.
I imagine you will want to know how to overcome hurdles like “you can’t do that at your age?” or “where’s the money coming from?” Or “Am I healthy enough to do it”. It’s important to reassure yourself about safety, health and finding good accommodation and food. I didn’t have all the answers nor did I do everything right. However, a willingness to learn from others and from the experience came in handy. I hear from many people that they want to get off the treadmill of the commute/work routine and to get more freedom into their lives.
