     I love to walk. Especially when the surroundings are nice. I love old buildings and love to look at them and wonder what happened to them and who lived there and what they used to look like!

    New Outlook On Life

    Up until 7 years ago, I was somewhat into sports. I played racquetball and a bit of baseball. In the winter I liked CC skiing, but often found it not interesting unless with some other friends. I thought I was reasonably healthy.Then it hit. HEART ATTACK.After about 4 weeks in...

    Especially With Someone

    I could walk for hours upon end. I love to walk on nature trails, once went on a trail that lasted six hours and that was pretty cool cause there were no people anywhere and it was almost like an adventure. Yeah, I know I sound lame, but hey it's fun to me. I've gone on a few...

    Walking Is a Great Pastime!

    When I was a kid, my mom and I would go for walks often. There is a paved road that makes a circle at our local park, and often we would walk that road. I really enjoyed doing that. I would walk on the very edge of the road. I would look down at that line that the edge of the...

    All the Time.  I Love ...

    All the time.  I love walking, I walk about one hour every day. I like doing sightseeing walks as well. Of course, this has something to do with my not driving!

    It Calms Me Down

    I like long walks, for me it's quite relaxing just to enjoy the wind blowing against my face, hear nature's sounds, see the beauty around me.  Long walks definitely calms me down.

    I love the crisp fall mornings,

    when you breath the fresh air... listen to the birds singing in the distance, with a cool breeze and brisk step, nothing more nicer than long walks on these days.

    The furthest I've walked from Toulon was to

    Hyères. I was alone, and I was just drifting. I was sixteen and I had to call my Dad to come get me when it was late because I didn't have any money go get home.

    Good Way To Keep Fit And Trim

    If the weather is good, I love walking and will go for a three or four mile walk every day.  It is a great time to think about anything or nothing if you choose.  I just like to look at the trees and the birds, the flowers and the sky or stars & moon while I am covering the...

    Sometimes I walk around the neighborhood,

    wave hello to neighborhood childhood friends. I might walk through the woods, because it's a short cut to the shopping center. Walking is very good for your health. It can increase your years and maintain a nice healthy heart beat.

    80 Km Walk

    Some weeks ago, I attempted to ake a walk around the island I live in in a day, which would be 80 km (50 miles). I made almost half of the walk under rain, and after 19 hours of journey, I had walked 76 km but I stopped, I couldn't go any further. What a frustrating moment.

    On the weekends, I like to go out

    for a walk around my college campus while listening to music through my ear buds. I recently started a new routine where I walk through the open hallways on a 3-story tall lecture hall building. There are no classes on the weekends, so I can walk and dance through it without...

    I'll just walk in a direction with no

    destination. No place to be. And no time constraint. I'll just walk and explore for hours. Its one of my favorite things to do

    Cold Weather Walks

    I really like taking long walks when it is colder; when you have to dress up to it... You do not even want to finish it, you just want to move on and on.  (as opposed to hot weather) In a walk, I like when the ambiance changes. After half an hour, you are in a different...

    One Foot, Two Feet.

     When I go on walks with my friends, I could walk all day long (with the right shoes of course.) I am so amazed when people are TIRED of just WALKING! Running, yes I understand. But I will hate the day that if I have a job where I'm sitting at work all...

    Busy Not Being Busy: a Meditation

    I called my insurance company this morning. I was late with my payment and found myself coming up with apology after apology, excuse after excuse in my head. After all the debate in my head, all I could honestly claim was: "I was busy." And I was! Who IS'NT busy...

    I don't mind going for long walks.

    As long as I got my dogs with me and my Pepper stray I'm good.

    At home on the Côte d'Azur my walks were along

    the coast. Here in Paris I have walked beyond La Defense, out towards Malmaison. I've even walked southwards on the road towards Fontainebleau. I live to walk. It's much easier on the coast in shorts or bikini panties. I look forward to each one planned or not.
