It wasn’t until I was at the peak of the mountain that I realized how much I belonged in nature, away from the city, away from the 8am-6pm grind, staring at the screen 24-7. I soaked up the sun on my skin, breathed the fresh Canadian air, closed my eyes and enjoyed the peacefulness around me. Even though it was summer in Canada, the weather was beautiful – it was 55 degrees Fahrenheit. I loved every moment of my vacation – being in the outdoors with the leaves, animals and the sound of the creek made me feel so relieved.
