Discovering Ekudden

Discovering Ekudden


I didn’t know that this existed here in Porvoo. Been living here for a long time but still I knew nothing about this wonderful peaceful place.

Most of my life I’ve been surrounded by nature, trees and fields but after a while I didn’t spend that much time in the forest. Like really deep down in the woods where man hasn’t touched anything. It’s something I took for granted. Then time passed by and all these trees where cut down and people started to really “own” their lands and putting up a signal that those woods belong to them. I couldn’t walk there like I used to. Or at least without feeling that I wasn’t welcome. That’s not what walk in the nature should feel like. That you are doing something wrong.

But then I discovered Ekudden. It’s a conservation area in Porvoo and it’s part of the Natura 2000 network. This beautiful place made me realize again how important it is to really surround yourself with nature. To breathe it in without distractions and hurry. It grounds you in a different way when you slow down in the forest for an hour versus you walk through a park when you go to work.

I know I spend a lot of time in front of a screen (phone, computer etc.) and all that sends a fair amount of radiation to my system. I also know that this is the situation for may others as well. I feel that nature reboots our system and gets rid of all the bad vibrations we get from our everyday life.

So I will try to spend as much time in the nature as possible.

How about you? Do you like spending time in nature?


You are awesome!
