I like to spend time near nature. I feel relaxed sitting under the shade of a tree. There are flowers and grass around the tree. The blue sky with white clouds above. This scene makes me feel peaceful and happy. (Of course if there is not a noise as karaoke or bolero music...)

It depends. Mostly I like to spend time in a city, because I can do a lot of things: work, bring my children to school, meet my friends, go shopping or to a restaurant. But sometimes I do like to spend some time in nature by sea, in a forest or in mountains. It relaxes me and brings me on the next level. I can definitely get well rested there.

What’s the difference between ‘nature’ and ‘the nature’??? ;)

Hello Rafaela1,

The word 'nature' has several different meanings, so I'm afraid it's difficult to say much more without knowing more about the situation where you saw 'the nature'.

When 'nature' refers to the natural world, as it does on this page, I can't think of any case where 'the nature' would be correct.

Hope this helps.

All the best,

As the remote work become common, I think people tend to want to live near nature. ;)

Cities are usually crowded and noisy. That's why, honestly, I feel very lucky to live in such a peaceful neighbourhood. In front of the building, there is a wonderful river and lots of trees. So, I don't have to go far to enjoy nature. However, it happens that I feel like going away to a really quiet and clean place where I can breathe some pure and fresh air, no cars and preferably no people, only nature, water, mountains, fields, sea, birds singing, waterfalls, etc..

If I am bored with the city life, I will go to a nearby beach and spend hours just to look away until dark. After I will sleep alone in the sand until sunrise. Finally I will go home and prepare to go to work.

I like to spend my most time in the city now because the city always has a lot of thing that I need, I just want to live in the modern area. But When I get older and older I tend to like to live somewhere near natural like countryside because it really peaceful and quiet, living somewhere near a river. I like every morning when I get up, I will enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in front of my balcony and breathe fresh air, I also want to raise some animals like a dog, a cat, ducks and chickens in my garden. In the afternoon, I will walk along the street around my neighbourhood and talk with someone,....

I think I can’t live in a concrete jungle. Viewing green from the window makes me relaxed.

Submitted by Alexis GG on Tue, 05/05/2020 - 16:35

Honestly, if I had to choose the perfect place to live for me I'll say : a medium city near a forest and not so far from a place to swim (sea or lake or river). I'd really liked to say that I prefer to live in a village near the nature, but as I grew-up near from Paris in France, I now know that I can't really enjoy life far from the city. I say that I'd really liked to enjoy a more near nature life because it's less expensive, you can do more activities, there is less pollution and maybe people are more calm. But honestly I really feel alone when I spend a lot of time in an area where just a few people live.

I would like to be near of the nature. First because my home town is a small village with a lot of small forests where we go sometimes to hunt birds. And also, I love the flavor of flower in the morning and also the cries of birds. I always feel good and nature.

I love nature and I spend a lot of time there. I live near a forest, I only have to cross one street and I'am there. The air is so much better as in a town and the silence is also healing. You hear only bird chirp and rustle in the undergrowth..
