But it’s in the nature where I find my real peace and re-connect with my inner self better. One of the best experiences of this kind for me is going to the mountains. It doesn’t matter whether they are very high, nor which country they belong to. If I feel like I need a break, which for me means stopping my mind and moving my body, I take a hike. Here’s why.
