Getting lost in local forest

How, you might ask, is it possible to get lost in a forest you go nordic walking in on a regular basis? Well, you can, it seems… Again.

It happened to us a few weeks ago too. This time, we got lost for even longer; an hour and a half amble turned into three hours before we reached „terra cognita“ so to speak. Yes, instead of making a note of every conspicuous patch of moss we passed by, we chatted.

These forests cover an area of 6000 hectares (about 15 thousand acres) and constitute part of the larger Tricity National Park which borders Gdansk.

Lessons learnt? Next time, arm yourself with a bar of something sweet and a smartphone with a gps which has been activated.
Will we be going again? You bet.

Ala, happily unconscious that we were about to lose our way.
