If long walks through nature are your thing, you’ll love Cumberland Island, just off the coast of the US state of Georgia. You’ve got 28 kilometres of Atlantic-facing, white sand shoreline, ancient oak forests and abandoned historical sites to explore. And you’re more likely to bump into a wild horse than a person – they outnumber people four to one. Originally brought to the island by the Spanish in the 16th century, they’ve since been left to roam free (and reproduce: there are now more than 150). If you can’t visit them, pick up a copy of photographer Anouk Krantz’s book Wild Horses of Cumberland Island, published this month.
