There are a lot of benefits to living in a big city, but city life also comes with its fair share of stresses. When the stresses of city life – the traffic, the sirens, the crime and the smog – become to much to bare, many city dwellers wish they could take off into the wilderness for the weekend.
Not everyone, however, is able to make this happen. Some people don’t have cars. Others work weekends. Others are simply too far from the wilderness to take off on a whim.
If you fall into this category, the videos included in this post are the next best thing. These videos, which come from a knife-maker turned YouTuber, show a man and his dog taking off into the woods for a quiet weekend away. The videos are beautiful edited, and cleverly left without music so that viewers can enjoy the sounds of the outdoors.
Neither video is especially long, but both are absolutely worth watching. So click play, sit back, and take a quick, virtual escape from the madness of your life as a wage slave. Who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired to plot an escape of your own! Just make sure to grab yourself some One Fresh Cup single-serve coffee filters before you set out (use discount code WILDLIVES 10).
