Kelly tells me of the most incredible time she had chilling by herself and hiking in the wilderness on a tiny Island off Hawaii.
It had been a long week, and I needed to get right out of the burbs, and right out of Sydney! Inspired by Kelly, I took my city slicker self to Seaforth, to embrace one of Sydney’s most secluded and unknown Coastal Walks to Bantry Bay. As I hiked through the lush bush dotted with Australian Wildflowers, the sweet smell of their nectar and the peppermint trees calmed me. Breatheable Bush Medicine.
Working and living in a big, stressful city is challenging. Sometimes we need to escape! We spend most of our time at work indoors, and a lot of our weekend socialising indoors, eating and lazing about. Take a moment to take yourself and the special people in your life somewhere very natural and beautiful. You will feel amazing. It’s very good for you.
Bushwalking through the Garigal National Park was very quiet much to my delight, and as I hiked up to the summit, not knowing where I was going, but relishing the anticipation there it was. After all that climbing, herbal fumes and dodgy pathways I arrived at the big rock to take in the Awesome Vista and eat my banana.
Avoid being tread on more common paths such as the Bay Run or Eastern Beaches Coastal Walk. Go somewhere off the beaten track, be inspired to connect with nature and bring forth your progeny.
