MORNING WALK IN THE FOREST

Early morning walk in the forest. It makes I feel alive. I was enjoying a crisp early morning walk in our amazing Prattenburgse bos (Prattenburg forest). Nature is so impeccably beautiful there.
  • Sharing some photos with you 📷





Ik denk dat het de laatste week was, voordat de bladeren echt af gaan vallen. Alles leek van goud om me heen. Vooral de beuken kleuren heel erg mooi. 

  • Lees HIER meer over dit bos en het landgoed en de wandelroutes die er zijn.
  • I made a short video ↴




A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people. - Franklin D. Roosevelt
In a forest of a hundred thousand trees, no two leaves are alike. And no two journeys along the same path are alike. - Paulo Coelho
Today's seeds are tomorrow’s trees. - Matshona Dhliwayo
Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore. There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf.  - Albert Schweitzer


And biking home again. I was not alone here on the lonely cycle path outside our village. I saw another woman. Her ocher yellow jacket really fitted so well with the autumn colors of the surrounding bushes.

Dat vind ik fijn. Niet alleen op dit eenzame fietspad. Dit bos is zo ongeveer 5 km bij mij vandaan. Hé en vinden jullie ook niet dat mijn voorganger op het fietspad mooi bij het bos past met haar okergele jas? Wie weet leest ze deze blogpost 😊...

    I like all the four famous quotes on forests, trees, seeds, and leaves.
    Forests are indeed the lungs of our land - no doubt about that.

  9. Gisteren had ik tijdens mijn wandeling ook het idee dat alles goud was om me heen.
    Allemaal beuken met ook nog eens een sprei van goud onder de boom.
    Bewondering, verwondering.

    Dankjewel voor het delen.
