What to pay attention to?
Hiking has its own evolved culture. There are some rules we all have to observe in order to live in harmony with the nature and to preserve the Earth for the future generations.
Forests and fields are habitat of a world of animal and plant species. We need to protect these areas in order to maintain nature’s balance. Do not litter, do not bluster, keep springs, creeks and retreat areas clean. Take waste along and depose it on the designated spots of built-up areas, do not throw burning objects away and do not light a fire.
If you observe these rules, you can preserve the treasures, for yourself and others as well, which are indispensable to the life of animals, plants and human beings alike.
However, environmental awareness is not only important if you are walking in the woods. Strive to have as little ecological footprint as possible. Be environmentally aware when shopping, handling the waste produced by you and in the transportation. When being in the city, opt for public transportation, walking or cycling.
The Earth is your home. Take care of it!
Infection caused by ticks may be very dangerous to health. It is worth meeting the family doctor and asking for immunization against it. However, if you have not been immunized, never forget to check it after the trip, whether any undesired fellow passengers have joined you.
