    Walking is nearly my fave form of exercise. There is some kind of joy in the brisk movement, while soaking up and absorbing nature and the surroundings, the landscape, the smell of earth. There is always some delightful little surprise in getting a glimpse of some animal who...

    Yeah walking for me is best

    when it's raining, the world seems more like nothing bad is going to happen rather just stay at peace and silence, but on those days I like to listen to music while it's happening just for the extra relaxation.

    Alone

    I take long walks and often, when I don't have anything to take care of in the evening, I just walk home. And It takes about two hours walking through the city but I don't even realize how time passes. I just keep walking, thinking, talking, often singing to myself :P and nobody...

    Walk To No Where

    I love to walk. I love to just head out with no destination in mind. Doing that gives me time to think. Sometimes I think about all the things wrong in my life and how to change them. Sometimes I think about all the people in my life who love me and how I can never repay them for...

    This may sound weird

    as everybody walks but I like walking in my free time. Walking, especially on rainy days just really helps to clear the mind and have the weight lifted off your shoulders, walking alone is best as when you walk with people sometimes you can get busy chatting a lot, tho walking...

    I walk so much. I walk to pass the time,

    to help with my thinking, to deal with negative memories, to keep in shape, and of course to find good photographs. I probably walk a good 6-8 miles per day, every single day.

    This is a nice time of year here in Louisiana.

    Great weather for walking, not too hot or too cold. All the trees and plants are starting to bloom. Makes my walks a lot prettier than a month ago.

    I love walking but it's

    so hard to do rn because it gets dark so early :( and my roommates don't like long walks. Maybe I'll just live blog a walk of my own one day. Block 1- saw a cat. Wasn't friendly. Block 4- someone had a swing and I sat on it and then a scared child stared at me from the window...

    Absolutely

    I love exploring new places all the time. Even just walking around in my own city I stumble across things that are completely new. When I explore new cities though, Paris or Brussels or Luxermbourg, I love just walking around on my own and just taking it all in. Very relaxing...

    Nature Is Always There

    Walking lets me get in touch with my surroundings.  Ever since I was a little girl I loved nature.  I could lay on the soft green grass and look up at the sky and just listen to the sounds of nature.  Now I am even lucky enough to take a walk my life has me so busy...

    I love walking in beautiful mountain scenery,

    where the air is fresh. I love how when I backpack, my worries become so much more primal- find water, worry about wild animals, etc. In the 'real world', my worries are much more trivial, so it's nice to have a break from that.

    I walk everyday. I enjoy walking,

    when I leave my house in the morning and close the door behind me, everything in my home is forgotten and I go on my merry way. I love to walk down the street and see the passerbyes, and wonder sometimes where everyone is heading. Are they on their way to work?, to the grocery...

    Walking Within Four Walls

    I love to walk but it always is an effort to do so.  I live in the city and there aren’t too many places to go walking and be safe which is a sad thing as I love walking.  That doesn’t mean you can’t still go walk though, just that it means when...

    It's so much more relaxing

    than running I feel. It makes it a much nicer experience if you have good scenery to look at. One of the things I used to love about living in the countryside, before things changed.

    Is there anything more relaxing

    than going out for a long walk to nowhere in particular? Just keep going in the direction you're facing. The perfect way to clear your head from all the rubbish it gets filled with during the day. I've been known a good few times when I can't sleep, to get up, pull some jeans...

    Allows One To Clear One's Mind

          A long walk can be soothing for the soul and a great stress relief.  Even though I regularly walk to work an hour each way, it still is a pleasant experience most times.  I walked over 180 miles in October and again in November.  That kind of mileage does wear on...
