Not even thinking about 3 hours long! But I…

Climbing the Ben Nevis

When I was on holiday in Scotland back in summer 2017 we have climbed the Ben Nevis. It was more like a joke than a well-prepared plan. At the end of the morning, we were really close to Ben Nevis and we thought, well why not have a quick look?

What makes a forest a tropical forest?

What makes a forest a tropical forest?

I’m a student International forest and nature management. And specializing in tropical forest, but what makes the difference between tropical forest and a normal forest?
