i really like to see trees, flowers, and falls. i love going to places that are quiet and is close to nature like forest, fields and others. when i am on these places i can unwind and i feel very relaxed. i can even meditate and make some plans for my future. are you also like me? do you also love nature tripping or you prefer a busy urban life?

this is not a simple question for me... i need to have both... I like crazy urban life because i like masses of people, the opportunities that you have, pubs, places, shops... could not live without it... but then again i am a nature lover i enjoy the sight of it the smell of it the tranquility... i could not choose one...

Yes! This is how I am. I need to be in the city with people... But, I could take a day off once in a while and visit nature. =) I also visit the nature just here in my backyard whenever I feel like it. Usually that's enough for me.

Yes, I love nature dearly. I like my city of London very much, but I don't go there much. I prefer where I am. It's quiet here. I'm lucky, because here in the suburbs, you have an urban-rural mixture. There are trees, parks, wooded walks and so on; but large built up commercial/business/entertainment areas are very close. You have the best of both worlds. That said, I am rarely in the "real" country; and when I do go, I am amazed at the difference to here. Simply the English countryside has no comparison. That is something I miss, existent so close to the city.

I am a nature lover, I love nature trips, water rafting, looking at caves, the gorges along the way, nice views and cool waters. It skeeps you aware and also drives you to protect it for the next generation to experience as well and they will not just see it in books and tv. I have experienced white water rrafting this year twice and we also wnet caving, it was really awesome, the caves and the organisms inside make you feel that you are in a book together with the stalactites and stalagmites.

Same here. I really do love nature. Sometimes in my life especially when i have problems, being into a garden or forest is one of my solution to it. It is in there that I can feel relaxed and can even burst everything into tears for there's no one who will disturb you there.

Hi there. The bustling city life is definetly not for me, I live in a rural beach town, and I love walking the beaches, or going bush. When I do I feel so relaxed and revamped that when I get home, Im energised already, this happens also when Im weeding in my garden, I can go into my garden feeling a little tired and soon as I start weeding I feel energised... Strange but true...

The urban life is definitely for me, but I love nature too! I've always felt like I'd be trapped if I lived in the country. Mostly because I don't like feeling secluded. I always had all of these reasons why I would never want to live in the country, because I wouldn't be able to walk to the store when I needed to, I wouldn't be able to visit my friends without driving 30 miles into town... I'm not sure that those ideas still pertain, but that's kind of what I grew up thinking. Anyway, back to nature. I love the sky, I love snow, I love the ocean, I love flowers (Snowdrops, especially)... I've sometimes wished every season was as colorful as fall and spring... But I do like the snow, trees look beautiful bathed in sparkling snow. I wish that thunder storms would happen just a little bit more often just so that I could see the lightning more often. I love looking at the mountains in the distance. Oh, and sunsets are the best. Isn't God an amazing artist?

I am not into the bustling urban life. I love living up a holler so I can watch the birds flutter from place to place and watch the squirrels do their acrobatics from tree to tree.And occasionally watch a mother and baby deer stumble accross our yard to get to the water. Ahhhh! give me nature anyday the peacefulness of nature yet if you listen closely nature isn't all that quiet..lol beautiful noises.

I like nature. I'm lucky that I live on a field and have a nice sized yard with a bunch of trees that I get to enjoy on a daily basis. There's no need for me to travel to a park like setting. :) I get to watch the birds and other little critters in my own yard, though sometimes my 7 year old chases the birds away. :P I can't get too mad at him though because I used to do the same thing when I was his age! LOL I love to watch the seasons change, especially fall and spring. Flowers blooming or leaves falling is always a nice thing to watch. :)

Yeah I really love nature actully I grew up in the province with lots of trees and diffrent animals. I alos love beaches and falls, where I grew up. I missed that thing, climbing in the trees to get some fruits like chico and guave. And now that I'm already here in city I really missed the nature and the birds sings and lots of stars in the night.

I love nature to. It helps me connect to reality. I live in a city, and it can be draining. It also creates alot of mental static, theres just too much going on, esspecially since I live in a 24hr city. It's nice to get away, and be the only person for miles. It clears aways all the built up negitive energy. I also find gemstones and crystals somewhat soothing, and balancing.

For anyone eho enjoys spending time in the grat outdoors: hikers ,mountainclimbers,snowboarders,kayakers,campers,tree-huggers.Stories of adventure are complemented by tales of introspection. For me I am a nature lover and I love spring most.

Yes. I do love the nature just like many of us here in Mylot do. I think there will be no one in the world who hates the nature. Nature is the mother of Human beings and nature is the God. If we can think and realize, its nature that is keeping the life of the human beings still secure and fun, in spite of the bad behaviors of human kind to nature.

I am definately a nature lover when I get the chance. As I live in London I am surrounded by concrete and cars, so not much nature going on. When I have a chance to retreaat to the beautiful countryside of England I feel so much better. The peace and quiet, the freah air and the tranquill life people lead outside of cities makes me feel so much more relaxed. I think this is why I stay up so late, this is when I get my tranquillity, and I enjoy every moment:)

Actually I grew up in quite a busy town. I used to have everything I want within my reach. Cinemas, shopping complexes, and restaurants are so near to my home. Naturally I am fond of living in a town rather than living in the urban. However, after getting married I have to follow my husband to a rural area. So I have no choice but to force myself to like the surroundings here. At first I didn't like it because everything is so far. But now I am used of it and I even like the peaceful and beautiful scenery. If I have a choice, I would like to live in a town. But I like going back to nature for a vacation.

I love nature. I love trees, colorful flowers, the lakes, the blue sky, the greenery ... I am away from all these. One day I will go and settle down in a country where I can find all these.
