Relax into a tour of my local 30,000 year old sholai forest and a eucalyptus forest, for International Forest Day 2019.

I have made this special little video to celebrate International Forest day, so please join me for a beautiful forest tour. You will see 2 forests that I live with, one is an ancient natural forest over 30,000 years old, and the other is relatively new but very tall eucalyptus forest. This is a slow and relaxed tour with my commentary and some stunning nature and views. Enjoy!

This post is my submission to the @ecotrain challenge. If you would like to join us please read the information below:

Thank you so much for taking us for a tour of the amazing forests that surround you! How wonderful to be able to live in peace and harmony in such a place as this and it seems rather isolated so you can live mostly undisturbed! How fortunate!

So true, except for mynalmost daily visit from earthship fans passing by, but those are the kind of disturbances i like! :) xx

oh my goodness - this was so wonderful @eco-alex! Thank you for sharing a glimpse into the forests that surround you. I found your video so uplifting and I can see why you decided to plant your roots there.

thank you so much, really lovely feedback! xx

DAMN..... WE HAVE AN OUTRIGHT WINNER!! 💚💚💚 I smiled and laughed and luxuriated through your video, which was simply wonderful. Feeling blessed by your post after my very realistic & depressing Thai-Burmese forest post. Miss you, my dear. Put the kettle on cos I have an itch to visit & hang with you some more. x Thank you for such a glorious post.

Great video brother, you live in a beautiful spot in nature, and I very much respect your sustainable, environmentally friendly homestead. The forest has always been the most healing thing in my life, and it seems you share a similar connection. I thank the universe that I have a chance to experience forests in general, and look forward to expanding my awareness of it's energy even further moving forward.
