Snaps | A Woodland Walk
Isn't it nice to escape the rest of humanity and take a walk in to the wilderness? Ok, not going to lie, these photos weren't exactly taken in the winderness. In fact these woods are right beside a little village and have designated walkways so I did bump in to a few more humans on my walk, haha. But for the majority of the time it was just me, my camera and utter silence. I don't think anything can put things in to perspective more than escaping everything, even just for half an hour. Just being with yourself, not checking your phone, and your own thoughts your only company.
The little underground stone hut you see is called the Ice House. I'm not really sure what it was used for, I could have looked in through that hole which is a window, but lets face it, I was far too chicken and scared of what I might see in there!
The small castle you see is actually a mausoleum which holds the bodies of 2 or 3 important people in the area who lived hundreds of years ago. I think they were land lords or something. I didn't want to get too close to it, because being there alone kind of freaked me out and you have to admit, it does look like a place that would be haunted, in the middle of the woods and all. The keys for it are actually available if you want to have a look inside, sounds like the stuff of nightmares to me though!
So my woodland walk was nice, peaceful and refreshing but it did have moments (that damn ice house and mausoleum) of me being a wimp and wanting to run rather than walk! haha.
