In today’s modernized society, interacting with nature and such is rather unheard of. Mainly because the rat races most of us are in deny us the time we want to go for a holiday or a break alone. And if we get that break, we’ll either want to just rest at home, or go to another country and enjoy the urban jungle there. We can see exotic nature too, but so much for interactivity most of the time. Adventure trips, whether long or short term, does wonders for both the body and mind. It gives you a minor work out and you can take the time to meditate within nature as well, thus clearing your mind to focus on other matters.
Firstly, I’ll cover the kinds of outdoor adventure trips that you can opt for. Generally there are 2 types, and in this rather short article I’ll only focus on the long and short term ones. To define a little more, long term ones are basically outdoor adventure trips which concerns spending overnight outdoors while short term ones usually last less than a day. You can choose either one depending on your schedule and what level of adventure do you wish to partake in.
Secondly, depending on what kind of trip is it, it varies with what you need to pack. For a long term trip, going lighter is the way. With the tent and other essentials already heavy enough, the last thing you need is something heavier to wear you down on what I assume would be a long trip. For the short term one, be sure to bring plenty of water, and perhaps some rations as well. You could also go for a picnic, so the possibilities are rather limitless.
Lastly, with regards to choosing a good location, it can be quite different depending on where you live. If you’re in Singapore, the botanical gardens or the horticulture park would be a good short term trip, but if you’re looking for something with overnight and more adventure, Pulau Ubin might just be the thing for you. If you’re not in Singapore however, do not fret. Do check with your local agencies on good spots to hike and to camp, and you’ll be sure to find a place you like.
In conclusion, Outdoor adventure trips are actually quite fun and can be a real eye opener especially if it’s your first time. It’s really a good opportunity to interact with nature and to just take a few moments to meditate. After all, could you really find the time to do that in this hectic rat race? I sure hope this article has given you even that slight tinge of curiosity to spend some time in the outdoors. Trust me, it’s a lot of fun, and by the time you’re done, you’ll be all refreshed and ready to carry on with life!
