Technology has invaded virtually every aspect of our daily life. Whether it’s answering emails at work, Whatsapping with friends and family, or idly scrolling through our Facebook or Instagram feeds, sometimes it feels like we’re always staring at a screen.

With all this time spent glued to our phones, it becomes increasingly important to step back and take a break. Sometimes we need to disconnect—and what better way to unplug than exploring the great outdoors?
