City life makes our minds corrupted with all of its noise, pollution, hustle routine and countless other distressing things that have actually become an inseparable part of our daily life but…. We just can’t forget that we are human, a species born in a surrounding that was loaded with natural surrounding but over the period of time, we have changed it into more of a world of concrete than trees, rivers, mountains, deserts, and plains. The soul needs what the soul was born to and that is why every once in awhile we crave to visit such places where we can feel close to nature to suffice our soul and refresh our minds.
