While I was in Waitomo, besides exploring the enchanting glowworm caves, I took the time to go hiking on my own. With so much untouched nature around me in the small Kiwi country town, I thought it was only appropriate to take the time to appreciate it.
After finishing up with the caves, I wandered off to explore a few different trails just outside of town. I ended up getting myself a tad lost and I had to hitchhike back to my hostel, but the mental space and beauty I found on the walk was well worth it.
For once, I took a break from my iPod and instead took in everything around me. As opposed to my usual “walkabouts” which tend to include a rumination about a subject in particular, I used this walk to get lost in nature and clear my mind of fleeting thoughts.
The result: a graceful day in the countryside.
