Vacations walking in forests

I wonder how much non-wwodworkers think about trees? Woodworkers likely spend too much time thinking about trees. When I took botany at university I thought it was boring, largely because it was all about Latin names and stuff like that. I mean some of them sound really cool… like nothofagus moorei, the Antarctic Beech, a magnificent tree. Who but a woodworker would think a holiday spent walking through forests was cool? And therapeutic. Walking through a forest helps via a practice the Japanese term Shinrin-Yoku, or forest bathing. Apparently walking around breathing in essential oils of wood is good for you.

So what forests are on my list?

  • The forests of Haida Gwaii
  • Hackfall Wood, North Yorkshire
  • The forests of the Ardennes, near Bouillon
  • Waipoua Forest, New Zealand
  • Giant Forest, Sequoia National Park.

What about you?
