We came across this great article last week from Katie Kuchta that offers a check list of sorts for those wondering whether a rural experience is right for them.
She has a good point in that urban centres or cities are fabulous for keeping you busy and people watching, and when she notes that the activities are generally more scheduled and more expensive than their rural equivalent.
If you want to get unscheduled, and keep your wallet in your pocket, then we recommend you book yourself a place in nature then get out there and explore.
You can check out Katie’s article for yourself here:
