Time spent outdoors is not wasted time if put to good use. It can all start with a stroll, a run, or a trek and then suddenly the world out there begins to look more inviting. Discovering more of the world does not have to be a grand affair that requires long planning and major life changes. It can begin with simple adventures that involve walking tours in scenic towns, treks in breathtaking nature trails, and sightseeing trips in unfamiliar cities.
