When going for a walk, is there a specific smell that you like? It can be the smell of fish and chips, the seaside, the grass being cut or flowers, or anything else you like?

Next on the senses’ list comes taste! Taste is very easily and intensely with our memories. Is there a memory that comes to your mind? It could be the taste of a drink or a food, the taste of rain or the taste of a snowflake landing on your tongue. Share that memory.

Last, but equally important is the sense of touch. In the usual walk route you have, find a tree that you like, go close to it and touch it with your hands. How does it feel? How is the texture of it? Describe the feeling and take a picture of it!
