Outdoor is known to be a place which can be located outside the house or at a natural or semi-natural setting out of the town. Lovers can sometimes have a break from doing such jobs, wherein they go out of town and spend their intimate time together with nature. There are lots of reasons why people loves to go outdoor. Some said that outdoor nature resembles the image of God, because of the natural beauty and aura that keeps a person refreshed and relaxed. Enhancement of inner perceptual and the spiritual life may be experienced through outdoor activities such as nature study, aesthetic contemplation, meditation, painting, photography, archeological or historical research, and most of all indigenous culture among others. Outdoor represents, freedom and there's nothing quite like knowing that you and your group are miles away from anything remotely civilized. Going outdoors with family, helps in keeping the bond between members strong and firm.

“The sea is dangerous and its storms terrible,
but these obstacles have never been sufficient reason
to remain ashore…unlike the mediocre,
intrepid spirits seek victory over those things that
seem impossible…it is with an iron will that they embark
on the most daring of all endeavors…to meet the shadowy
future without fear and conquer the unknown.”

- Ferdinand Magellan

“Take only memories, leave only footprints.”

- Chief Seattle

the slavery of home, man feels once more happy.”

- Sir Richard Burton
