Besides taking the occasional trip to my mom’s place which is fairly close to me, I don’t really get out of town. Recently I took over a management position with my supplier last year, and since then, I have been quite busy! The greatest news is that I have a month long vacay planned next month and I’m so excited. Researching, I have rented a cozy spot in the mountains so that I can relax and be at one with nature. The place is extremely rustic. It doesn’t even have an air conditioning system. In my opinion though this is the best way to experience the mountains. I personally appreciate removing myself from my regular routine and forgetting about all of my luxuries back home. Not having a cooling unit would take a little bit of getting used to, however I’m sure that I won’t even notice it too much. I know I use my air conditioner at home as little as possible to save energy because I’m not the kind of man who leaves it on consistently. Aside from that, I know I will be outside as much as possible anyway. There’s an extraordinary river that is about a mile hike away from my rental home, and I’ll be there as much as I possibly can. I always appreciate this type of getaway because it makes me more loving of how I am living back home. I guess it makes me more appreciative of all of the appliances and luxuries that I have. It also helps me be more thoughtful about using them. I have a real strong appreciation for nature, and I know it came from spending time outdoors on expeditions like this one.
