Yes, life can indeed be a bitch sometimes. There are times when everything is overwhelming and you just want to go to a lonely island, keep everything and everyone out and sip your pina colada in your hammock.
But mostly a lonely island is not at hand. So where do you go to get your groove back?
For me it’s definitely on the trail. There are days or weeks that are so intense at work or in personal life that I just want to get out of town into the peacefulness of the English countryside and reboot my energy level. Thankfully, there are 100s of miles in front of London’s door step. I just need to hop on a train for 30 minutes and there I am, in the middle of nowhere. On a footpath through English fields and forests following the bridleway or the acorn.
