“In every walk with nature, one receives far
more than one seeks.”
– John Muir

Barefoot on the grass, listening to the birdsong..

The simplest of human activity, putting one foot ahead of the other and on, is so therapeutic and meditative that great minds have always used this tool to reconnect with their creative sides. Poets and thinkers through the ages have been known to take long hikes and treks to incubate greatness in their minds and hatch them in their creations. The beautiful trails and paths around Rakkh are as surreal as they get. Converse with yourself...
