Why Walk?

Humans have travelled long distances on foot for millennia. It is our most basic, simple form of travel – getting from point A to B. It is like breathing. For most homo-sapiens, it is something one does without thinking.

In our modern world, with our fast cars, fast technology, and fast food we have to look for opportunities to take walks and slow down. Walking can be, in itself, a form of meditation and as such, allows for personal growth and understanding. A “walker” gains confidence, strength, clarity, and self-awareness through endurance, patience, and achievement in natural surroundings. This is the central motivator to participate in Walking Space.
