SCOTLAND BEING IN THE MOMENT
It’s not just about keeping quiet. It’s about noticing things. Listening to what the birds are telling you, like if there’s a hawk around, or a mustelid. It is about being immersed in the moment - keeping still for a few minutes to see what might happen next. To me, this is what travel is all about. It’s less about where you are and more your perception of the natural world. Our preconceptions and perceptions can be altered quite quickly and we can become much more connected with our environment. These are skills which I first learned as a child in the Highlands and hope to share with you on a Steppes tour somewhere one day soon.
