Today I explored Manitoba
Today some of my classmates and I went to Birds Hill Park for our Manitoba Travel Assignment, an assignment to go past the City of Winnipeg perimeter and write a travel story. Now, I'm going to be honest, I wouldn't consider myself the outdoorsy type. But being out in nature was really quite relaxing. It was nice to be out in the vastness of the park, away for the city and the hustle and bustle of a regular school or work day.
We also met a family that frequents the park at least once a week. It was nice to see people taking pleasure in the simplicity of nature and the park. They even had their small children and a stroller out on the trails.
The trip was a realization that removing all the distractions of everyday life can be very relaxing...even if I had a few bootfulls of snow.
