You wake early and groggily exit your tent, taking in the nature that is all around you. Scents of wild strawberries, fennel and sandalwood coax you from your drowsy state. When your coffee is ready you stir it slowly with a cinnamon stick from your pack, then take out some figs and cherries to nosh on. They may think you are a fool for taking this journey by yourself, but it has already changed your life.
