    Every time my sister and I go on a trip to a natural place

    Please correct any errors in this short piece.

    Every time my sister and I go on a trip to a natural place, we like to add a bit of extra adventure and thrill. There are always set paths you're supposed to follow, but we generally stray from these and pick our own routes. We know it's perilous, but we've certainly had some exhilarating experiences. Last time we went to Lake District, we winded up at the top of a hill without knowing where to go. Fortunately, we spotted a highway down at the bottom, and the only way to reach it was by descending a steep road full of tall plants and rocks. We tripped and slipped a couple of times but we made at it the end. It was scary, not going to deny that, but once we got to the highway we felt like seasoned hikers.
    To live only for some future goal is shallow. It's the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top.

    What do you mean by a natural place? A nature spot/place of natural beauty?

    Yes, I didnt know what's it called. Does "countryside" work too?

    Only if it's actually in the countryside. Beaches, mountains, hills, glaciers, cliffs and many other places are "places of natural beauty".

    Thank you for your suggestions. What about the rest of the paragraph? Is it correctly written?

    See above.

    The Lake District is in the UK where, with the exception of in "The Highways Agency", we don't really use the word "highway".
