HME Reminder & The Ultimate Hiking List

Let me start off by explaining HeartMindEar to you all and my vision…

HeartMindEar is my very own platform to inspire and to be inspired. Since I can remember I have had a large space in my brain dedicated to wanderlust and the endless list I have of places to go in my lifetime. I often daydream of travelling to places far and wide to experience culture and nature.

For many years I have created blogs for thoughts and used them just as outlets rather than using them as outlets AND inputs. In recent times I have realised how important inspiration is, not only receiving inspiration but also giving inspiration. That is why I created HeartMindEar. I have grown from my selfish lust and want to share to inspire rather than ‘look what I am doing/have done’.

HeartMindEar has only began and isn’t something I update as often as a lot of blogs out there, but unfortunately I don’t go exploring and eating out every day as at the moment I am making myself busy with work so I can go on my ultimate European trip in March.

Just a little explanation as to why HeartMindEar is in existence and such a casual one at that for the time being.

This year I discovered the joy of hiking. I discovered just how relaxing and in touch with nature you can get. Just you (or a hiking partner/group) and the terrine. I discovered just how much I appreciate the sounds, the sights, the smells of the natural world and just how much it enlightens your soul, in a healthy way.

For inspiration for my trip recently, I came across a few lists of underrated places to see and food to eat around Europe, then I came across this amazing list and decided that this is what I want to achieve in my lifetime, all thanks to a freelance writer on Lifehack.orgSiobhan Harmer. I wanted to share the list, share the inspiration.

The list is titled 30 of the World’s Most Breathtaking Hiking Trails You Must Visit and every track on this list I want to attempt! Some for the most expert hikers, some a great challenge, but all with amazing scenery!

The list is as follows:
